Justice CV Nagarjuna Reddy of the AP High Court on Friday directed the NTR University of Health Sciences not to approve the list of admissions said to be made in 'C' category (management quota) by Santhi Ram Medical College in Nandyal in Kurnool.

The judge made the order while dealing with a writ petition filed by M Harika, a student aspiring for a seat in the I year MBBS course for the academic year 2012-13.

He directed notices to the medical college and Shafa Educational Society which has issued a purported admission notification in respect of MBBS course of the said college.

The matter was posted on Aug 13. The judge opined that publication of admission notification in newspapers and fixing the deadline for receipt of applications before declaration of EAMCET results as intriguing.

"It is wholly meaningless for any private medical college to issue such an admission notification even before declaration of results, which defies any logic and rationale. It is regrettable that the University of Health Sciences is not taking serious notice of the devious acts of this nature on part of the private medical colleges, which in my prima facie opinion are intended to mislead the aspirants and deny them real opportunity of making their applications at an appropriate time," he remarked.

The judge noticed that the college issued a notification and called for applications from candidates between June 21 and June 28 when the EAMCET ranks were announced on June 29.

He wondered how this was possible while dealing with the specific plea of the petitioner that she had made a request to the college management for issuance of an application from but was not given.
