Medical aspirants should not fall victim to lapses of government officials: HC restores MBBS seat for candidate
Telangana: Bringing relief to a medical aspirant, Telangana High Court has issued an order restoring a seat to the student who had been denied MBBS admission under the convener quota for not producing his original certificates.
A Bench comprising justice MS Ramachandra Rao and justice Amarnath Goud directed the Kaloji University of Health Sciences and Karimnagar-based Prathima Medical College to give MBBS admission stating that lapses of the government officials cannot be thrust upon students.
The bench was also considering petitions challenging Kaloji Narayana Rao University's step of not allowing the aspiring medical candidates to upload their applications for second phase counselling under the B and C Category for the academic year 2020-21. Many medical aspirants all over the state approached the court complaining that at the time of applying for convenor quota, there was no option to apply for B and C category and now the students were being barred from uploading their applications stating that they have not chosen at the time of initial counselling.
The panel has issued an interim order and directed the university to allow the petitioners to upload their applications.
