Maharashtra: Private medical colleges stand against centralized admissions

Maharashtra: Private medical colleges stand against centralized admissions

Mumbai: Private and deemed medical institutes in the state will move the Bombay High Court all over again to seek protection of their rights to run their institutions in the face of the MCI calling for centralized admissions.The Council has included 100% seats  for centralized admissions in deemed and private institutes. The MCI’s decision of centralized admission process for all medical institutions in the state: deemed or private,  led the government  to file an affidavit, on Wednesday, declaring  the institutional  petition filed- now standing’ null and void’.

Adjourned till next Tuesday, the government called the petition ‘infructuous’, because pending petition, the Council had come out with a proposal for a common entrance test.

Senior Counsel Ashutosh Kumbhakoni, an intervener appearing for a Trust created by parents, said that in view of a Supreme Court judgment, the petition “may not have become infructuous”.

Anil Anturkar, appearing for the petitioners, said interim admissions granted needed confirmation. The court has called on all parties to arrive at a common consensus if possible.Deemed universities had moved court on the state government last year for its decision on centralized admissions, reports TOI.

    Compulsory Combined Entrance Examination & Centralized Admission Counseling can not be construed to be a restriction on the rights of these Trusts/Companies to run Medical/dental Institutions. “Right to practise any profession, or to carry on any occupation, trade or business” under Constitutional Article 19 (1) (g) notwithstanding, Article 19(6) permits State’s authority to impose \’reasonable restrictions\’ in public good which is very much conceded by the 11 judge SC bench in landmark TMA Foundation case.
    These Trusts/Companies have voluntarily established their Institutions which are mandated to be non-profit entities. With the exception of Deemed Universities, fees all other Private Universities/ Institutions are fixed by State’s Fee Regulatory Authorities based on the Statement of Accounts/Balance Sheets of the very Institutions. With these fees fixed based on their own Accounts, how can these Institutions be under a loss!
    Selection of students for MBBS/MD/MS/DM/MCh/BDS/MDS Course assists the Institutions, including the private ones, in picking the most talented/motivated aspirants.
    Then why this hullabaloo on Compulsory Combined Entrance Examination & Centralized Admission Counseling.
    Matter of fact is that these Institutions are making huge profit which is violation of their mandate. Moreover, they are producing doctors, a large number of whom woefully lack competence. The more empty-headed the student, more the capitation Fee; of course with a guarantee that performance notwithstanding, he/she will surely pass!
    Our nincompoop system including higher courts have been delivering all sorts & shades of motivated/convenient judgments citing the same jurisprudence.
    Good & right judgment would require consciousness & good intent from our legal luminaries.

    As Rightly pointed out by the Honorable supreme Court of India , the respective high courts should stay away from the decisions taken by the The Apex Body Medical council of India. Such matters should be left to the discretion of the Honorable Supreme Court of India. There fore the court should not admit such cases , to prevent piling up of the cases already getting delayed for the Judgment. \”Justice Delayed is Justice Denied. \”

    Notwithstanding our awareness of SC’s advisory, it’s the learned & honourable judges who need to be more aware of it. TN HC’s Division Bench comprising Justices S Nagamuthu & Anitha Sumanth has admitted a petition each from Saveetha Med College & SRM University. In both cases,interim orders are suiting Private Institutions’ stratagem.
