SC slams private colleges admissions procedure

“Private medical colleges are doing wrong admissions. The court has to stop it,” the SC  vacation bench of Justice P.Sathasivam and Justice A.K.Patnaik said.

Kerala Christian Professional College Management Federation has moved the High Court against State government’s GO of June 02, 2011 extending the cut-off date for admission to the government quota seats.

The court’s indictment of the private medical and dental colleges came after it was told that in Kerala the managements of the self financed private medical and dental colleges have filled up 66 post-graduate degree and 8 post-graduate diploma seats belonging to the 50% quota earmarked for the State and the Central government.

The court granted Kerala government time till June 30, 2011 to complete the counseling of the medical students to fill 50% seats earmarked for the State and the Central government in the self finance private medical colleges. The state government had moved the court seeking extension of time.

The admission of the 74 students, already admitted in post graduate courses, plunged into uncertainty as the apex court said that their admission would be subject to the outcome of the writ petition by the management of these colleges challenging the Kerala government’s GO before the State High court. By the said GO the State government had extended the cut-off date for admission to the seats under its quota.

To compound the uncertainty, the Medical Council of India (MCI) told the court that it would discharge the students admitted by the managements of these colleges in excess of their 50% quota. The 50-50 percent quota regime is provided for and regulated by the MCI. Senior counsel Amarendra Saran stated the MCI stand before the court.

Under the MCI regime, in the self financed privately medical colleges 50% seats fall under the category of management quota and 50% seats are earmarked to be filled up by the State and the Central government. The Central quota goes to the State government it former so decides.

Taking note of the commercialization of education in another matter, the court observed that in “earlier days the school and colleges were set up for charity and for imparting education.”
