BENGALURU: The number of students disqualified from appearing for the undergraduate dental course (BDS) exams at Vokkaliga Sangha Dental College, Bengaluru, has touched 40. Over 20 foreign students, mostly from Iran, were declared inelegible earlier.
As per the information available from the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS), the college had admitted 40 students more than the intake sanctioned. The university had also directed the college management to discharge excess students and a communication was sent in this regard in May 2016.

Dr K S Ravindranath, Vice Chancellor of RGUHS, said, “The institution was allowed to admit 60 students per batch. They took in 40 extra students under NRI and management quotas.”
He clarified that the university can’t allow them to write the exams as the admissions were not uploaded online and NEET rank cards for the 40 students were not produced.

A student said, “The matter is in Supreme Court now, but we wanted the Vokkaliga Sangha to assure us a refund the amount collected.”
Sharan Prakash Patil, Minister for Medical Education, said, “The college management approached us, but we told them as they are illegal admissions, government can’t intervene. If students approach us we can insist the college to refund the amount collected.” Vokkaliga Sangha has called for a meeting on Saturday regarding refund.
