A three-judge Supreme Court bench comprising the new Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, Justice AM Khanwilkar and Justice DY Chandrachud asked the DGHS to upload the admission list on their website and also mail it to all the deemed universities.

 

“Time for mop up round counselling is extended till September 7, 2017. This extension shall only be applicable to the deemed universities and no one else. Any application by any other college or institution seeking extension shall not be entertained,” news agency PTI quoted the bench as saying.

 

The DGHS, which is the counselling body for admissions into deemed (medical and dental) and Central Universities as well as the 15% All India Quota seats, informed the apex court that as many as 5,500 seats are still vacant in the deemed universities. To this, the Supreme Court directed the DGHS to fill these seats from the existing pool of the 55,000 qualified students.
