99 Medical Students File Petition Over PG Admissions Pattern

Petition on PG Medical Admission Pattern
The medical students are now demanding admissions based on the NEET Examination results. About 99 students have filed a PIL over the PG Admission procedure on Wednesday.

The issue is however close to the petition filed by the students of MS and Bhavnagar Universities.


What does students exactly want? The students are mainly demanding preference during the admission process based on their scores in NEET Examination which was conducted by the Medical council of India for the academic year 2013.

A senior counsel DC Dave, who appeared with counsel Nimesh Patel on behalf of the students said "After hearing our petition, Justice Paresh Upadhyay issued notices to the state government and GU while fixing June 12 as the next date of hearing."

He also said "We have demanded preference for the students of medical colleges affiliated to GU while granting admission in PG courses based on the NEET scores obtained by the students,"

"If the government decides to admit the students according to the NEET score of all medical colleges in the state, the first merit list prepared should be of GU students and after that it should give a chance to students of other universities," he said.

It is come into notice that the Gujarat University and the state government have decided to give admission to the students on NEET score from the 2013-14 academic year. Earlier, the GU used to follow a different pattern. It had given admission in PG courses by counting 50percent marks secured in both the entrance and MBBS final exams.

The issue is quite confusing as some students wish to continue with the old procedure where as few are against it. Students are eagerly waiting for the results and a common rule for all PG Admissions for the year 2013.
