The SC has hereby asked the Government of Andhra Pradesh and the NTR University to respond to a appeal, which stated that several meritorious candidates have been discarded for admissions. On Issuing the notices on last Friday, also to the Private Colleges as well, on petitions filed by a group of students, a bench of justices HL Duttu and CK Prasad said admissions made till date for academic year 2012 will be subjected to the final outcome of the student's appeal, dependent before it.
A Counsell named Ramesh also filed a warning on behalf of 16 Private Medical colleges pleading that they be heard before any order is passed by the court in the matter. The Bench said "any admission made by the respondent institutions in MBBS/BDS or any other course is subject to the result of the present special leave petitions. Respondent colleges shall intimate the dependency of the present SLP's as well as the interim orders passed by us to all the students who have taken admission in the 'C' category (Management Quota)".
"We also make it clear that dependency of the Special level petitions here will not come in the way of higher court taking a decision on the merits of the writ petition", said the bench in its order.
The depressed candidates appealed that most of the private college managements had not followed the norms prescribed by the apex court in the PA Inamdar case and were offering seats to the students on an arbitrary basis, thus depriving meritorious ones of their share. Hence, the apex court had fixed guidelines and prescribed the manner for private medical colleges in order to fill their management quota MBBS/BDS seats.
The petitioners had said that the Private Colleges were not following the 'Government's GoMs 136' issued by the State Government on April 30, 2007 to give effect to the Supreme Court judgment in the pa Inamdar case. Later, the high court had however refused to stay the admission process upon which some of the students filed the present special leave petition, challenging the high court's order in the apex court.
