The Supreme Court on Wednesday, 4th July ruled that MBBS students admitted by medical colleges by increasing their intake without prior sanction from the Centre would not be permitted to practise medicine as their degrees would not be recognized. Where any medical college increases its admission capacity, except with the previous permission of the central government in accordance with the provisions of Section 10A, no medical qualification granted to any student of such medical college on the basis of the increase in its admission capacity shall be a recognized medical qualification for the purposes of the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956, the court ruled.
Accepting arguments on behalf of Medical Council of India (MCI) which protested the Allahabad high courts decision to increase intake of three medical colleges from 100 to 150, an SC bench set aside the increase. It said, In other words, without permission of the Centre on the recommendation of the MCI, any degree granted would not be recognized as a medical degree which would entitle such degree holder to function as a medical practitioner. The three institutes were School of Medical Science & Research, Sharda Education Trust; Rama Medical College Hospital & Research Centre, Kanpur, and Tirthankar Institute of Management and Technology, Moradabad.
