In the latest case to highlight the massive corruption in the functioning of medical colleges across the country, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has taken a retired Odisha High Court Judge IM Quddusi and four others into custody over allegations of helping an Uttar Pradesh-based educational trust admit medical students to its MBBS courses despite being barred by the Medical Council of India (MCI) from doing so.

CBI raids across cities - FIR registered

The CBI has also arrested BP Yadav and Palash Yadav, owners of the Prasad Institute of Medical Sciences, Lucknow, a middleman Vishwanath Agarwala and a hawala operator Ram Dev Saraswat. The raids were carried out by the CBI in Lucknow, Delhi and Bhubaneswar on Wednesday after registering a FIR against Quddusi and four other accused. The agency recovered Rs. 1.91 crore during the raids.

 

Charges and Sections the judge and others booked under

Quddusi was booked under section 8 of the Prevention of Corruption Act. He was also booked along with four others under Section 120 of the India Penal Code for criminal conspiracy. According to the media reports, Quddusi not only provided legal advice to the owners of the private medical college but also assured help in settling the matter in the Supreme Court.

 

CBI’s detailed charges in its FIR

According to the CBI’s FIR, the agency received the information that BP Yadav touched base with Quddusi and Pandey through one Sudhir Giri of Venkateshwara Medical College in Meerut. The CBI further said in its FIR that the petition filed by the owners challenging the debarment of the college was withdrawn from the apex court on the advice of Quddusi on August 15, 2017, and another petition was filed in the Allahabad High Court.

 

Recap of past events

As reported by Careers360 in July, the Medical Council of India had barred the Lucknow based college along with 50 other colleges from giving admission to medical students for the forthcoming academic year owing to inadequate facilities and not delivering on the required criteria.

 

The Supreme Court, on August 1 this year, had directed the government to take a look into the issue and either grant confirmation or otherwise of the letter of permission granted to the petitioner college considering the materials on record afresh. The Government, in turn, gave the college an opportunity to present its case in a hearing and passed the order to debar the college on August 10, 2017, from granting admission to medical students for two years- 2017-18 and 2018-19. The government also empowered the MCI to encash the bank guarantees of Rs. 2 crores.

 

Latest controversy to hit NEET

As per a Supreme Court order passed in 2016, admissions to all medical and dental colleges take place through the National Eligibility cum Entrance Exam from 2017 onwards. NEET 2017, since its inception, has been the subject of innumerable controversies and legal disputes in courts across the country. This arrest of a High Court judge is now sure to cast a different light on the validity of various orders passed in the courts with regard to the exam.

Aditya kumar Student Expert 15th Oct, 2019

Hello there!

Greetings!

I am extremely sorry to tell you dear but there's no reputed Institute who provides 6 months course for neet preparation.  For example,  if i tell you about reputed institutes like Aakash and Allen Institutes then they don't provide admission for neet preparation just six months before neet.  Similar is the case with other institutes , so they no coaching institute will provide you admission now.

Thankyou

Is it worth to join crash course for 3 months for NEET 2020 exam for scoring good in reputed institutes?

Aditya kumar Student Expert 14th Oct, 2019
Hello there!

Greetings!

Yes , test series worth it for neet . Test series are nearly similar to the actual exam and help you know what really happens during the real test. The difficulty level of the questions, the pattern of questions, the marking scheme, and the allotted time are kept identical so this will allow you to get a hands-on experience of solving the questions in exam . Practice not only makes you perfect but also builds confidence. Giving more tests during test series will help you manage time and performance with great confidence. The more tests youll give, the better you'll understand your strong and weak areas, test series also give you the opportunity to solve every question with a positive attitude. Test series for NEET 2020 will help tremendously in this respect for you.

Thankyou

Is there any 6 months coaching program available for NEET 2020 exam in reputed institutions?

Aditya kumar Student Expert 14th Oct, 2019

Hello there!

Greetings!

I am extremely sorry to tell you dear but there's no coaching who provides admission for neet preparation just six months before neet as syllabus is wide and it's really difficult for coaching centers to cover the complete neet syllabus in six months time and yes there are not many students wanting to take admission just six months before neet and so they can not start a new batch with you only , so there are numerous reasons because of which you can not get a coaching right now.  You need to focus on self study and believe me you can crack meet with flying colours and fulfil your dream of becoming a doctor with self study.

Thankyou

Can I join now in any reputed institute for neet 2020, only 6 months remaining, I am 1st year dropper. Which course is available now and which is best institute available for admission?

Rehan Alam Student Expert 14th Oct, 2019

Dear Aspirant,

You will not be able to join any main course now as most of the institutes have their last batch starts in the month of August. Certainly many institutes can offer you to join their batches but in most of them atleast 20% of the syllabus is done, and in some cases even 50%(April batches).

So if you're aiming for a fresh batch no good coaching have a fresh batch for you now. However, you could do self study and join crash courses in the month of March-April next year. All good coaching institutes have crash courses .

Hope this helps. Thank you.
