Jabalpur, Oct 11 (UNI) The Madhya Pradesh High Court today issued notices to the Centre, state government, Medical Council of India (MCI) and others in a case relating to an Indore-based private medical college flouting Supreme Court guidelines by granting admission to ineligible students and denying the same to a candidate who figured on the Dental and Medical Entrance Test (DMAT) merit list.
Justices Deepak Verma and K S Chouhan heard a plea by Panna-resident student Harshita Sharma and then issued notices to the Secretary (Health and Family Welfare), state Principal Secretary (Medical Education), Madhya Pradesh's Dental and Medical Association, MCI, Professional Education (Determination of Fees) Committee, Indore's Index Medical College and Bhopal's People's Dental and Medical College.
''The petitioner was at 1,355th place in the DMAT merit list. Her father Dr H S Sharma even deposited Rs 1,000 as fees in the college.
The MCI recently permitted the college to fill 150 seats on the basis of centralised counselling and DMAT results,'' submitted petitioner's counsel Purushendra Kaurav.
