SC extends counselling till June 30 for medical PG courses

In a relief to doctors seeking admission into PG courses through all India quota, the Supreme Court today extended the schedule to conduct counselling for the unallocated seats till June 30.



New Delhi: In a relief to doctors seeking
admission into PG courses through all India quota, the Supreme
Court today extended the schedule to conduct counselling for
the unallocated seats till June 30.

A Bench comprising Justices R V Raveendran and Gyan Sudha
Misra asked the Director General of Health Services to extend
the second round counselling so that unallocated seats of all
India quota could be filled up instead of surrendering it to
the states concerned.

The court passed the order on a plea by some of the
candidates who contended that the decision of the Centre to
surrender the all India seats to states concerned after
completion of the second round counselling, which ended today,
would adversely affect their chances of getting admission into
the PG courses.

The petitioners had approached the apex court saying
several candidates qualifying under all India quota would be
deprived of PG seats once the Centre`s quota is surrendered to
states.

"States be directed to disclose the number of vacant
seats under all India quota," the advocate, appearing for
doctors, said.

The petitioners said lack of co-ordination between the
Centre and states was adversely harming their interests.

They submitted that 14 states have not completed even the
first round of counselling for PG seats and there were many
which had already completed the process.
