(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The plea to extend the deadline was turned down by the court saying that it may upset the admission process which is to be completed by September 30 as per the MCI calendar.

The confusion prevailing over admissions in self-financing medical colleges in Kerala was cleared on Tuesday with the Supreme Court rejecting the plea of the college managements for permission to conduct separate entrance examination for the management quota seats.



A division bench headed by Justice H L Dattu has directed the colleges to admit students to the 35 per cent seats under the management quota from the government’s rank list. Six colleges had approached the apex court as they failed to conduct the test before May 31 the deadline fixed by the Medical Council of India (MCI)



The plea to extend the deadline was turned down by the court saying that it may upset the admission process which is to be completed by September 30 as per the MCI calendar. The court observed that the extension may affect the students adversely. The bench will consider their plea for an increase in the fee later. It has asked the government to state its position on the plea within a couple of days.



Two different fee structures are currently in force in the self-financing medical colleges. While four colleges under Christian Professional Managements’ Federation are allowed to charge a uniform fee of Rs400 000 per annum for all seats 12 colleges under Kerala Private Medical College Managements’ Association are allowed to charge varying fees for different categories.



The current fee for merit quota seats in these colleges is Rs165 000 below poverty line (BPL) category Rs25 000 socially and economically backward students Rs45 000 management quota Rs700 000 and Non-resident Indian (NRI) quota between Rs800 000 and Rs1.15 million.



The 12 colleges had refused to concede the 50 per cent merit seats to the government due to the discrimination in the fee structure. While five colleges fell in line later and signed agreement with the government the six colleges insisted they will concede 50 per cent merit quota seats to the government only if they are permitted to conduct the separate entrance test.
