Around 73 medical aspirants who appeared for admission counselling under NRI Dependant Category at Gujarat Medical Education & Research Society (GMERS) Medical College at Sola were left in lurch on Friday after being informed that the admission counselling had been postponed.
The decision to defer the admission counselling was taken by GMERS NRI Admission Committee on September 1, following a petition filed by one of the candidates before Gujarat High Court regarding the admission process under this quota. The medical aspirants had come along with their parents from Nadiad, Sanand, Surat, Vadodara among other places. Though the decision had been taken on Thursday, several of them complained that they were not informed of the postponement of admission for this category. Upset and enraged, parents of some candidates went to Gandhinagar to meet the Chairman of GMERS. An NRI dependant candidate, who came from Nadiad on condition of anonymity, said, They didn’t inform us about the change in plans despite having our cell numbers. It’s only after we reached the medical college that we saw the announcement on the notice board. Dr R Dixit, Chairman of GMERS NRI Admission Committee said, we had put up the change in plans on our website and informed the candidates through SMSs. The decision to postpone the admission process and counselling of NRI dependent category as the matter is sub judice. The next hearing on the petition is on September 5. We do not want to jeopardise the careers of these candidates and hence we will wait for clear guidelines from the court. Both the medical colleges have an intake capacity of 150 seats each. Out of the total 300 seats, 46 seats (23 seats in each of the two colleges) have been reserved for NRI students. Earlier on August 29, one of the candidates Vaibhav Trivedi, had filed a petition before High Court demanding appropriate implementation of admission rules in NRI dependant category. In his petition, he sought for proper directions and instruction to produce and verify proof of income of the parents of students seeking admission in the same category. The petition will be heard on September 5.
