This is the matter of admissions at Chintpurni mMedical College, Pathankot which is still pending before the double bench of Punjab and Haryana High Court. And all eyes are eagerly awaiting the outcome of the court ruling slated for September14, 2012.
The parents of all these students on the other hand are looking towards the Punjab government to impress upon the Medical Council of India in order to take back the de-recognition notice. MCI has de-recognized the college and has also debarred admissions at the college.
With this de-recognition the future of another 150 students admitted in the year 2011 also hangs in balance. Because of de-recognition of Chintpurni Medical College, the second counselling for admission at various medical colleges across Punjab has been kept pending. As per sources, the counselling now is hoped to be held from September onwards.
KK Singla, Kewal Krishan Goyal, the parents of students desiring admissions in MBBS said "There are 1070 seats for admissions to MBBS but with the de-recognition the seats have come down to 920 in various medical colleges in Punjab. We were hopeful of getting admission for our wards but the sudden decision of MCI after the process for PMET was set in motion has come as a rude shock to all of us".
Though across India 3595 seats have been increased, but injustice has been meted out to them by decreasing 150 seats in Punjab that too after the process was set in motion, the worried parents said. Another parent named Tarzan Sharma said "the student getting rank of 827 had got admission in year 2011 and we were hopeful of same rank getting admission but with decrease in seats all this has gone helter skelter. We want the Punjab government to take up matter with MCI so that future of hundreds of students may not hang in balance".
The decision is yet to be discussed in the court. Students seem to be tensed about their MBBS admission and their future too. Will they get admissions? Will the college get its recognition back? What will be the courts decision? To know keep visiting.
