RGUHS told to release result of 212 MBBS students withheld over alleged seat blocking

Bengaluru: The fate of 212 MBBS students of the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) will finally see daylight, as the Government of Karnataka has directed the university to declare the results of the first year MBBS students, which was held over alleged seat blocking.

Confirmation to this effect has been given by the Principal Secretary to the Department of Medical Education, Rakesh Singh who stated that it has been concluded to immediately release the examination results of the 1st-year medical students who took admission in the academic year 2018-19.

The result was withheld sensing the involvement of 212 first year MBBS students in a suspected-seat blocking conspiracy during the admission process in 2018.

It was alleged that 212 medical students had secured seats surrendered by meritorious students. The meritorious students reportedly surrendered seats to private medical colleges instead of the Karnataka Examinations Authority and joined premier medical colleges elsewhere in the country. The MBBS students who surrendered their seats after the initial mop-up round was within the rank limit of 15,000.
