Telangana Medical College to revise list of MBBS Medicos detained from exam after students protest
However, the students condemned the management's action and alleged that the Head of Departments (HoDs) issued the "Detailed List" and submitted it to the Kaloji Narayana Rao University of Health Sciences (KNRUHS) without putting it on the notice board first.
According to the rules, the student must have 75 per cent attendance to appear for the semester examinations and if the attendance is lower than that due to sickness, 10 per cent relaxation is given for which the students are required to submit the medical certificate along with prior intimation to the concerned medical colleges' Principal. At the same time, the medical college administration is required to draft up the "detained list" and display it around 2 months prior to the exams so the students can redeem back their attendance, if short.

As per the Kakatiya Medical College MBBS students, the management did not comply with the aforementioned rules. Hence, they resorted to protest demanding revision in the list and criticized the HoDs for submitting it to the university authorities.
Further, in support of the protesting MBBS students, the Junior Doctors' Association (JUDA) submitted a representation to KNRUHS officials, who immediately directed the institute administration to conduct a meeting with the HoDs and submit a report.
Following the instructions, Kakatiya Medical College Principal Dr Sandhya held a meeting with the concerned authorities. The meeting concluded with management deciding to revise the list of detained students to be submitted to the university, reports The Hindu.
