The High Court on Wednesday ordered that deemed universities, COMED-K and linguistic minority colleges can’t make admissions till they reserve government quota seats. The court passed the interim order on a petition filed by MBBS students who have not been allotted government seats in these institutions. A Division Bench of Justices K L Manjunath and Ravi Malimath observed that 12 COMED-K colleges, eight deemed universities and six linguistic minority colleges (Karnataka Religious and Linguistic Minority Colleges Association) should reserve 33 per cent, 25 per cent and 20 per cent seats respectively, for Karnataka Examination Authority and continue their admission process. If they don’t hand over the seats, they will not be allowed make admissions under management quota. The matter will be subject to the result of the writ petition. Earlier, during the hearing, N Sivasailam, principal secretary, Health and Family Welfare (Medical Education) submitted that if the deemed universities don’t surrender the seats to KEA, the government does not have the powers to ask for it. The Bench asked that if the state government does not have powers to take action, how did it send notices to these institutions. The Bench was not happy with the government’s affidavit and directed ti to file a fresh affidavit on April 21 and adjourned the case.
