Shimla, Jan 23 (UNI) Parents of dental course students are in a dilemma over admission into the government medical college here with the authorities not admitting the ten students against the vacant seats.
''After being issued letters of admission, the Indira Gandhi Medical College authorities are not admitting the students. They had advertised for ten seats in the BDS second year class that had fallen vacant because of some students moving out,'' said a Vani, a parent of the students.
She said about 20 students from other dental colleges within the state had applied and ten were selected on merit basis but now they were not being admitted.
Another parent said the students who were selected had cleared their three year dues which amounted to about Rs 2.5 lakh with the private dental colleges of Sundernagar, Solan and Baddi to secure a no objection certificate for migration to another college.
He said that with not being admitted into the government dental college after having undergoing the due process, the students were a depressed lot as they were losing out on the requisite number of attendance needed as a pre-condition for sitting for their semester examinations.
However, Dental College principal Ashu Bhardwaj told UNI '' that the matter is under process. The students have been selected as per merit but the government is seeking some clarifications, which has caused the delay in admission.
She denied that there was any intention to deny admission to the students who have been selected.
