SC orders status quo on medical counselling in Madhya Pradesh
New Delhi : The Supreme Court ordered status quo in admission to undergraduate medical courses in private medical institutes in Madhya Pradesh on a contempt plea by the state government.
The state government had contended that private medical colleges were not admitting students on the basis of centralised counselling being conducted by it.
The constitution bench headed by Justice Anil R Dave issued notice to the private medical colleges, their association and deemed universities based in the state returnable before September 19 when the bench would hear the contempt plea.
The order of status quo is effective both on the counselling being conducted by the respective private medical colleges and the centralised counselling done by the state government.
