NTR University of Health Sciences (NTRUHS) has issued notices to all medical colleges to admit students by 31st July 2012 after learning that the private medical colleges are refusing to admit students who have been allotted seats through Eamcet counseling differing which the university will take appropriate action against erring colleges.
Having caught between the private medical college managements and the state governments row over management quota seats issue, the students and parents are tensed and want everything to be settled soon so that the students do not lose their classes which are expected to commence from August 1, 2012. As reported earlier about 3000 merit students are in the confusion after the private medical college managements have refused to give admissions on the pretext that a case pertaining to the management quota admissions is pending in the AP High Court.
According to the norms laid down by the Medical Council of India (MCI), only those admitted before July 31st will get approval, as the classes begin from 1st week of August. In view of this the NTR health university has taken note of the seriousness of the issue and had threatened the managements with stringent action if they refuse to admit merit quota students by 31st July.
Opposing the intervention of the government in management quota admissions, the private colleges have approached the High Court and maintained that they will give admissions for merit quota students only after the High Court delivers its verdict in the case.
The private medical colleges do not have any right to play with careers of the students who secured MBBS seats based on merit in the Eamcet counselling, and it is ridiculous to link merit quota admissions with the case pending in High Court. The colleges will have to admit merit students with in 1st July 2012 failing which they will have to face consequences said the NTRUHS official.
The university has already dispatched the list of all students who have been allocated seats under Eamcet to the respective colleges and had directed the principals of all private colleges to admit students by end of this month.
