Govt cancels essentiality certificate of Varkala SR Medical College
Thiruvananthapuram: The state government cancelled the essentiality certificate of Varkala SR Medical College. The management association informed the Directorate of Medical Education that they cannot admit students of SR Medical College.
With this, shifting of medical students who got admission here in the year 2016-17 is uncertain. The Directorate of Medical Education authorities said that further discussion in this regard is yet to be decided. The essentiality certificate was cancelled as per the direction of the Ministry of Health after lack of facilities was found in the inspection.
The high court directed to shift the students to other medical colleges. The initial discussions in this regard was held by the directorate and managements. Though PK Das and DM Wayanad colleges were willing to enrol the students, the management association severely opposed the move and demanded that the authorities should give a chance to SR Medical College for arranging better facilities.
Christian Professional College Management Federation also made it clear that they cannot admit the students. They stated that they have facilities to accommodate only 100 students and admitting more students will affect the studies of the existing students.
