Contention against NRI criteria without merit: HC on aspirant's plea seeking MBBS admission at GMCH Chandigarh
Chandigarh: The Punjab and Haryana Hgh court verdict on a case of contradictory eligibility criteria for NRI seats in two medical colleges of Punjab University has arrived.
Earlier, the Punjab and Haryana High court has dismissed the plea by the student who challenged and sought a change in the admission criteria under the NRI category at Government Medical College and Hospital sector 32.
The Court observed that the petitioner's effort to be considered against the NRI seat by importing the definition of NRI for BDS course is not only strange but is unacceptable.
The Medical Dialogues team previously reported that one of the petitioners approached the high court and mentioned the contradiction in eligibility criteria of the NRI quota at Harvansh Singh Judge Dental College and Government Medical College and Hospital. Both the institutions are affiliated with Panjab University. The petitioner had demanded that first-degree relatives of NRI's should also be considered eligible for NRI quota seats. The court observed that there is a contradiction in the eligibility criteria as mentioned in the prospectus by both the colleges for the admission to MBBS and BDS courses under the NRI quota.
