The Government of Kerala clearly indicated that it might approach the Supreme Court over medical admissions. The government has to seek clarity on the order of Kerala High Court permitting all private medical and dental colleges in the state to go ahead with admission process for the management quota seats.
Previously, the Supreme Court and Central Government announced that the admissions for medical and dental courses have to be conducted based on the NEET list. Mr. P. Vijayan, Chief Minister of Kerala, said that the High Court could not take a decision regarding the issue. So, it is better to approach SC to seek legal clarity.
The High Court granted a conditional stay directing the Commissioner for Entrance Examinations (CEE) to conduct admission to all seats including NRI and Management. A final decision on approaching the SC will be taken on August 29, 2016, after the meeting of government with the representatives of private medical and dental colleges.
Earlier, the HC had rejected the contention of Advocate General P. Sudhakara Prasad the seats to be to allowed based on NEET list to avoid corruption, capitation and to ensure transparency.
The private medical colleges claimed that the order of central government is ‘unconstitutional’ and it is an infringement on the rights of private medical colleges which were guaranteed under the constitution.
