CHENNAI: The Madras High Court has directed the Selection Committee to permit a deserving candidate to participate in the counselling for admission to medical courses under the reservation quota.

If he fails to produce the community certificate within the stipulated time, his admission would become invalid, Justice S Vaidyanathan has said.

The judge was disposing of a writ petition from N V Bharadhan, who belonged to Kuruman community. He sought more time to produce the certificate and in the meanwhile to allow him to participate in counselling.

It is not in dispute that the petitioner belongs to Kuruman (ST) community, the judge said and added that to substantiate the same, the student had also filed the community certificates of his parents and his brother.
