On Monday while pronouncing the interim order, the court said, “we are not interfering with the state’s decision of compulsory domicile and therefore, interim relief petition is rejected.”

The domicile rules

Earlier, Maharashtra government had formulated domicile rules, which mandated 85 per cent seats for domicile candidates in private medical colleges.

 

A number of law suits had been filed in HC challenging the Maharashtra domicile policy for admission to medical colleges. The institutions which had filed the petition wanted to go ahead with the admissions on the basis of national NEET merit list.  But the state government insisted on strict compliance of new domicile rules.

 

What next?

Even though the Supreme Court has imposed status quo on the on-going admission process in different medical institutes across different states, the Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) Maharashtra, has announced the final merit list for private medical and dental colleges. Students have been asked to complete their admission confirmation process at the earliest in order to complete the process before September 30, the deadline stipulated by SC for commencement of academic session.

 

Still, the petitioners are yet again expected to move to SC for a favourable order.
