Panel told to ensure transparency in allotment of seats
A complaint has been lodged with the admission supervisory committee for professional colleges seeking its intervention to ensure strict rule of merit, fairness and transparency in allotment of seats for MBBS course at various medical colleges in the state.
The complaint, filed by Dr N K Sanil Kumar, a Kochi-based medical practitioner, also urged the committee to cancel the entrance test to be being conducted by the consortium of management of self-financing medical colleges and to stop the entrance exams announced by Kochi and Pariyaram medical colleges.
Citing malpractice, the committee had cancelled the entrance test for MBBS admission to eight self-financing medical colleges held in Kozhikode on May 31.
The Commissioner for Entrance Examinations will conduct another entrance examination for admission to the same colleges on June 22.
“The Government of India has decided to conduct a single entrance test at national level for admission to MBBS courses in all the medical colleges, including government colleges, private colleges, self-financing colleges and deemed universities to make the admission process transparent,” the complaint stated.
It alleged that the Commissioner of Entrance Examinations will hold the examination on June 22 against the directives of the Medical Council of India and the Supreme Court order.
