Jharkhand government criticises MBBS admission cancellationApril 2nd, 2008 - 5:54 pm ICT by admin
Ranchi, April 2 (IANS) The Jharkhand government and MBBS students have reacted sharply to the Medical Council of India directive to cancel admission of 90 students of the 2007 batch at the Rajendra Institute of Medical Science (RIMS). The Junior Doctors Association (JDA) threatened to strike work from Friday if the RIMS administration failed to safeguard interest of the students.
“The RIMS administration should do the needful to safeguard the interest of the students. If the students’ interest is not protected, then we will go on strike from Friday,” said Abhishek Mundu, president of JDA.
State Health Minister Bhanu Pratap Sahi said: “I am going to New Delhi to meet union health minister Thursday. The MCI directive is biased. In South India, there are several medical colleges which violate the norms but they do not face such harsh rulings of the MCI.”
The MCI asked the RIMS to cancel admission of 90 students after a team visited RIMS in 2005 and found that the proportion of teacher and students were not as per norms. As per the MCI norms, the students and teachers ratio should be 6:1.
According to officials, RIMS falls short of these norms by 20 percent. The MCI had also asked the central health ministry to restrain the institute from admitting new students.
The RIMS, however, admitted 90 students in 2007. Now the MCI has sent a letter to the RIMS administration asking it to cancel their admission. The letter was received by the RIMS administration in March.
