CHENNAI: The Madras High Court has permitted 21 students of Melmaruvathur Adhiparasakthi Institute of Medical Science and Research in Kanchipuram district to obtain permanent registration of MBBS course with the Tamil Nadu unit of the Medical Council of India by providing them temporary registration certificates and CRRI training during 2015-16 in any other approved medical college in Chennai.

Justice MM Sundresh granted the permission while passing final orders on a batch of writ petitions from M Nivetha and 20 others, recently.

Thereafter, the recognition was revoked as certain deficiencies found were not rectified and complied with by the management.

Resultantly, the petitioners were not given temporary registration certificates. They are also unable to continue and complete their CRRI training followed by issuance of permanent registration of MBBS course.

Taking into consideration the arguments of Sivan, all the facts and circumstances of  the case and the decisions of the Supreme Court, the Judge said he was permitting the petitioners to approach the State Health Secretary within a week, indicating their options to undergo the CRRI training with the approved colleges. It is needless to state that after the petitioners complete the training as required by law, the MCI will have to issue permanent registration certificate of MBBS course to them, the Judge added.
