The High Court of Madhya Pradesh has passed an order stating that all the BDS admissions which have been done by private BDS colleges as per Class 12 marks must be cancelled within two weeks.
Justice Anurag Srivastav and Justice RS Jha have passed the order and indicated that the Director of Medical Education must take necessary steps in implementing the rules properly. They must be proper coordination between the authorities while carrying out the admission process.
Earlier, some of the private dental colleges across the state granted admission to the students who failed in the entrance examination. These students have been granted admission as per their Class 12 marks. After the issue came to the notice of Dental Council of India (DCI) had issued a notice to all these colleges indicating that all those admissions which were granted as per Class 12 marks must be cancelled.
Hence, some of the college management along with students filed petitions in the High Court seeking justice. However, the Jabalpur Bench of Madhya Pradesh HC too did not encourage the policy of college managements while carrying admission process.

According to MP Adhiniyam 2007, the private BDS colleges have to grant admissions as per Class 12 marks only if any seats are vacant after the two rounds of counselling. In the first two rounds of counselling, the admission must be given to the candidates as per the score they secure in the entrance examination conducted by the state government.
Therefore, the private BDS colleges in the state have no other option except to cancel admissions which were done as per Class 12 marks.
