SC cancels separate counselling for private medical colleges, directs state govts to conduct fresh counselling within a week

SC cancels separate counselling for private medical collegesBringing respite to medical aspirants stuck with the tussle between private medical colleges and state governments, the Supreme Court on Thursday, September 22, 2016 cancelled all the counselling conducted by private medical and dental colleges and ordered the state governments to conduct the counselling process afresh within a week.

In its judgement on the petition filed by Madhya Pradesh government against private medical colleges conducting their separate counselling process, the SC bench headed by Justice AR Dave scrapped the counselling conducted by any private medical college. “We direct that admission to all medical seats shall be conducted by centralised counselling only by state government and none else. If any counselling has been conducted by any college or university and admission to any medical seat has been given so far, such admission stand cancelled and admissions shall be given as per centralised counselling done by the state governments,” reads the SC order.

Earlier, the Madhya Pradesh government had contended that the Association of Private Dental and Medical Colleges of Madhya Pradesh (APDMC) were not admitting the candidates on the basis of centralised counselling and thus, there action was a ‘wilful and deliberate’ disobedience of top court’s order of May 2 and a circular of Ministry of Health & Welfare, Government of India of August 9, 2016.

 

Besides, MP govt had appealed that APDMC had issued a notice stating that private medical and dental colleges and private universities of Madhya Pradesh are conducting their online counselling from September 3. The notice further stated that any student who opts for admission in private medical and dental colleges and universities through centralised state counselling would not be given admission.

 

Also, the Maharashtra government had challenged the Bombay HC decision allowing deemed universities to conduct their own counselling. The state government had argued that a centralised process will benefit students who otherwise would need to attend multiple counselling sessions. Read the full story here.

 

The constitution bench headed by Justice AR Dave had issued a ‘status quo’ notice to the private medical colleges and their association till the next orders of SC. Also, the status quo order was effective for both centralised as well as private colleges’ counselling. Read the full story here.

 

Now, admissions in private medical and dental colleges across India stand cancelled and colleges will have to refund the admission fee to affected candidates.
