The Karnataka high court, on Monday, allowed the private medical colleges in the state to admit candidates to post-graduate courses as per the seat-matrix prepared by the Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (COMED-K) and not as insisted by the Department of Medical Education.
A division bench, headed by Justice Manjula Chellur, passed the interim order. The Karnataka Private Medical and Dental Colleges' Association had moved the high court against the state government, complaining that it had once again meddled with the seat-matrix. The petitioners had contended that the state government did not abide by the assurance given to the court on Friday. The government had submitted that it would not interfere with the management quota seat-matrix. When the division bench asked why the government interfered with the seat-matrix, Advocate General Ashok Haranahalli submitted that the government had to interfere because of complaints from the students about alleged malpractices in the allotment of seats. But he accepted that the government could not interfere with the seat-matrix as there was no power to do so. The bench, however, observed that the admission of the students to PG medical courses through the COMED-K will be subject to the final result of the case.
RGUHS crisis resolved :
The tussle between the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) and post-graduate medical seat aspirants was finally resolved on Monday, with the intervention of state medical education minister SA Ramdas. Following the high court decision, the RGUHS started fresh counseling on May 28. As it led to confusion over seat matrix, the candidates and their parents had been staging protests at the counseling venue. Ramdas visited the protest spot on Monday morning and interacted with the protesters. "There was confusion among candidates about the excess seats given to in-service candidates. But I clarified to them that only one extra seat was given to in-service candidates as per the court direction. After this, they were satisfied and the counseling started. It will be over by Tuesday evening," he said. I dream to become a naval aviator and I am working towards that he said I feel very proud. I always wanted to be an officer in the armed forces, but I could not. My son has made my dream come true, said J.K. Prabhune, a retired sergeant from Air Force. Nikhils family, which also has his mother Anuja Prabhune and his younger brother Rohan, hails from a small village near Jejuri in Pune.
Chaos at COMED-K venue :
Meanwhile, the venue of COMED-K PG counseling - which was scheduled to start on Monday as per a court direction-witnessed some chaotic moments. Students were not satisfied with the seat matrix prescribed by the Department of Medical Education. "The state minister visited that spot too and brought the situation under control. Counseling for dental courses was then launched as per the matrix," said an office - bearer of COMED-K. But, later in the day, the high court passed the judgment that said the private medical colleges need not follow the matrix prescribed by the medical education department and can follow the COMED-K matrix. The counseling would continue on Tuesday and be completed by the evening.
