Apex court warns private medical colleges against lapsesJune 30th, 2011 - 7:53 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, June 30 (IANS) The Supreme Court Thursday slammed private medical and dental colleges for lapses in admissions and said it will have to step in if things do not improve.
The apex court vacation bench of Justice P. Sathasivam and Justice A.K. Patnaik said: “Private medical colleges are doing wrong admissions. The court has to stop it.”
Taking note of the commercialisation of education in a matter related to medical colleges admissions, the court observed that in “those (earlier) days schools and colleges were set up for charity and for imparting education”.
The court’s indictment of private medical and dental colleges came after it was told that in Kerala the managements of the self-finance private medical and dental colleges had even filled up 66 post-graduate degree and eight post-graduate diploma seats from the 50 percent quota earmarked for the state and central governments.
The admission of these 74 students plunged into uncertainty as the apex court said their admissions would be subject to the state high court verdict on the petition of these colleges challenging a Kerala government order.
The state government in its order extended the date for admission to these seats under its quota.
Medical Council of India’s (MCI) senior counsel Amarendra Saran told the court that it would discharge the students admitted by the managements of these colleges in excess of their 50 percent quota.
In self-finance private medical colleges, 50 percent seats fall under the category of management quota and 50 percent seats are earmarked to be filled up by the state and central governments. The central government’s quota goes to the state government if it so decides.
