CHENNAI: The Supreme Court will hear Tamil Nadu’s appeal against Madras High Court order cancelling postgraduate medical admissions on July 3.
Citing this, the government has also filed an affidavit before the High Court seeking two more weeks to comply with its directive and conduct counselling, sources told Express.

The High Court had cancelled the PG medical counselling conducted by the Directorate of Medical Education after a section of non-service doctors approached the court. The court also ordered the authorities to redo the merit list within three days, and conduct the counselling afresh.
Meanwhile, one of the petitioners in the case said he would file a contempt petition on Thursday. As such, the logjam in PG medical admissions is continuing in Tamil Nadu.

Speaking to reporters at Government Multi Super-Speciality Hospital, Omandurar estate, Health Minister C Vijaya Baskar said the government was firm in protecting 50 per cent reservation for service doctors in PG medical admissions. “The government conducted counselling as per the rules. The incentive was provided as per the MCI guidelines,” the minister added. He said the government was awaiting the Apex Court’s verdict in the matter.
