Order on medical college seats reserved by Hyderabad High Court


Order on medical college seats reserved by Hyderabad High Court

It was when concerned universities began filling up the vacant seats based on merit that objecting candidates belonging to reserved category approached the High Court to seek justice.

Hyderabad: Petitions filed for and against GO No 550 for medical college admissions in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana saw the High Court division bench refrain from giving a verdict.

The GO 550 was issued in 2001 by the united AP state for filling seats, allocated to meritorious reserved category candidates which had fallen vacant due to nonfulfillment by students of another reserved category.

Petitions were filed in favour of and against the GO. The court on an earlier occasion stayed implementation of para 5(2) of the GO for filling seats (allocated to meritorious reserved category candidates) which fell vacant when candidates join another college under the reserved category (sliding).

It was when concerned universities began filling up the vacant seats based on merit that objecting candidates belonging to reserved category approached the High Court to seek justice.

Yet other candidates filed petitions stating that the meritorious candidates would lose if vacant seats were occupied by the candidate of the same reserved category. They also feared that this procedure would cut into the 50% reservation granted  reported TNIE.

In an earlier story done by Medical Dialogues it was reported  that an Andhra Pradesh  Government Order(GO),  which mandated filling of vacancy of a medical seat by a student from the reserved category, only if the vacancy arose due to the  decision of the student from the  reserved category to move from the seat secured by him in open category, was stayed by a High Court division bench

The bench that stayed this order comprised of Justice T. Rajani and  Justice V. Ramasubramanian.
