Go to RGUHS registrar, HC tells medical students

The vacation bench of High Court of Karnataka on Tuesday asked the final-year postgraduate medical students to submit a representation to the registrar of Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) to consider their admission and allow them write their examination scheduled for on May 8.

A division bench comprising Justices N K Patil and Ravi Malimath dismissed a batch of petitions filed by Dr B R Ambedkar Medical College, Bangalore and Basaveshwara Medical College and Hospital, Chitradurga after their counsel withdrew the petition.

The RGUHS had refused to approve the admission of a few students to these colleges since on the ground that the latter had sent the details of the students to the varsity belatedly.

The details, which should have been submitted to the varsity by May 31, 2012, were furnished on March 17, 2014.

The Basaveshwara Medical College had admitted two students under NRI quota though it had only one seat under the quota.

The RGUHS, therefore, refused to approve the admission of one student.

During the hearing, the bench observed that the students were suffering on account of the delay on the part of the colleges.

The petitions were withdrawn after the bench directed the students to meet the RGUHS registrar and submit a representation to consider their admission.

Interim order

The vacation bench of the High Court on Tuesday refused to vacate the interim order directing the deemed university colleges, COMED-K colleges and  Karnataka Religious and Linguistic Minority Colleges Association (KRLMCA) not to admit students under the government quota.

A division bench comprising Justices N K Patil and Ravi Malimath directed the counsels for the universities to furnish documents pertaining to the consensual agreement signed with the government.

The counsel for St John’s Medical College and Hospital, which comes under KRLMCA submitted that they had not signed any consensual agreement with the government and that they were unnecessarily being dragged into the matter.

The bench later directed the counsels to submit the original documents and adjourned the hearing to May 8.
