The Bombay High Court while hearing a petition on directed a stay on the government resolution (GR) dated April 27 that rendered PG Medical aspirants from outside Maharashtra ineligible for admissions.
The GR says that only candidates with domicile would be granted admissions to PG medical courses in Maharashtra state. The resolution was issued after the start of admission process on April 4, three days before the release of first selection list.
Earlier, On January 27, the state government published rules for PG medical admissions which states that students who passed MBBS from state colleges are eligible for admission. However, the state government released the GR on April 27 saying that only students with domicile status in Maharashtra could apply for admission.
A petition against the government resolution was filed in the High Court by four students undergoing MBBS course in Government medical colleges, three of them under 15% All India quota and one under the Defence quota.
The High court also stayed a notice of state common entrance test cell on April 28 that changed the eligibility criteria following the government resolution. The change in eligibility when the first selection list was to be released is unreasonable and arbitrary.
The order comes as a relief to over 700 medical graduates who were declared ineligible for PG medical admissions for being non-domiciled. With the academic session to begin on May 2, the state government is now preparing to appeal against the high court stay in the Supreme Court.
