HC aks GGSIPU to consider DU students also in Medical PG courses

HC aks GGSIPU to consider DU students
Delhi High Court today termed as "contrary to law" GGSIP University's stand not to consider eligible medical graduates of Delhi University for admissions in various post graduate courses in the 50 per cent seats reserved for students under the state quota.

It also asked Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University (GGSIPU) to consider eligible candidates for admissions in PG courses under the state quota irrespective of universities, either DU or GGSIPU, from where they did their MBBS or BDS.

"Considering the facts and circumstances of the case...,I am of the view that 50 per cent of the total seats for PG medical course available in IP University (GGSIPU), under the state quota, should be filled up purely on the basis of ranks obtained by the candidates, passed out their qualifying examination either from Delhi University or from IP University and the remaining 50 per cent of such seats should be filled from amongst medical graduates of IP University alone,"Justice V K Jain said.

The court directed GGSIPU to immediately issue public notice, in leading newspapers, inviting applications from eligible medical graduates of DU for being considered for admission to 50 per cent PG seats in state quota.

"While passing this order, I am conscious of the fact that the teaching which is to commence on August 1 is likely to be delayed by few days, but this is an unavoidable situation which has arisen only on account of IP University seeking to act in a manner which is contrary to law of the land," it said.

The decision came on pleas of DU students alleging that they were denied admissions in PG courses in GGSIPU under the state quota.

The Medical Council of India, which conducted National Eligible-cum-Entrance Test for PG courses, provides that seats in PG Courses are equally divided into two quotas, one known as all India quota and the other as state quota, the petitions said.
