Med Admission : HC seeks explanation

Mathrubhumi Education Online

Kochi : The High Court of Kerala has sought explanation from Govt of Kerala on the steps taken by them for filling the merit seats for MBBS in Private self financing medical colleges in the state and the reason for the delay in entering into agreement between the Government and the medical colleges as per Kerala Professional Colleges or Institutions (Prohibition of Capitation Fee, Regulation of Admission, Fixation of Non-Explorative Fee and other Measures to Ensure Equity and Excellence in Professional Education) Act, 2006.

The division bench was hearing a petition challenging the inaction from the side of the govt in either executing the agreement or taking steps for discussions with self financing medical colleges. The petition was filed by one Ms. Anju. M. Varghese from Thiruvananthapuram.

The writ petition was filed being aggrieved by the delay by respondents in completing the selection process to fill up the seats for M.B.B.S. in colleges under them, particularly under 10 medical colleges which were made as respondents in the petition.

Admissions to Medical Colleges in Kerala are to be conducted as per the terms contained in the Prospectus and the provisions of Kerala Professional Colleges or Institutions (Prohibition of Capitation Fee, Regulation of Admission, Fixation of Non-Explorative Fee and other Measures to Ensure Equity and Excellence in Professional Education) Act, 2006. An agreement has to be entered into between the Government and private self financing Colleges as per the said Act and the Prospectus. This year such agreement has so far not been entered into.

The petitioner says on account of the absence of/delay in entering into such agreement she with a rank 3694 for medicine is denied a chance to get admission for M.B.B.S. The delay in finalization of agreement would affect the transparency and fairness of the selection process. This would enable respondents self financing medical colleges to make admissions at their whims and fancies.

Classes are scheduled to commence from first of September 2015. This writ petition is filed seeking directions to complete the admission procedures as per law within a time limit. The respondent colleges pointed out in the petition are Academy of Medical Sciences,Pariyaram, Al Azhar Medical College, Thodupuzha, Azeezia Institute of Medical Sciences & Research, Kollam, DM Wayanad Institute of Medical Sciences, Kalpetta, Wayanad, Sree Gokulam Medical College & Research ,Thiruvananthapuram, P.K. Das Institute of Medical Sciences, Ottapalam, Malabar Medical College Hospital & Research Centre, Kozhikode, Sree Narayana Institute of Medical Sciences, Ernakulam, Dr. Somervell Memorial CSI Medical College,Karakonam, SUT Academy of Medical Sciences, Thiruvananthapuram.
