MBBS: HC asks CEE to submit affidavit
Kochi : The High Court of Kerala on Thursday has asked the Commissioner for Entrance Examinations to submit the reports on MBBS admission in Kannur Medical College and Karuna Medical College as affidavits on 19 October 2016. The direction came when the Commissioner for Entrance Examinations submitted its report after the spot admission held at Thiruvananthapuram on 7 October 2016.
On documents submitted by Kannur Medical College, the CEE said, the list of total applications and the category-wise Merit list did not contain the most important information viz, the NEET rank and Roll number of the candidates. Hence, the CEE submitted the HC to uphold the order of cancellation of the entire MBBS admissions made by the Kannur Medical College, Anjarakkandy, Kannur for the year 2016-17 and the eligible candidates may be admitted in accordance with the merit shown in the NEET rank list.
As far as Karuna Medical College is concerned, the CEE submitted that 'Even at 7 pm in the evening, the officials of Karuna Medical College were not able to furnish the documents relating to the admission of students in the college. The officials of the college tried to delay the process by giving misleading information and by not co-operating with the process.' The category-wise split-up of candidates admitted by the college was found not matching the actual seat matrix, the CEE added.
Irregularities were found in the admission of 30 candidates at Karuna Medical College and they were removed and spot admission was done to fill those 30 seats by following NEET interse merit. The list of these candidates was handed over to the Director of Medical Education for favour of further necessary action as the college authorities did not co-operate with the admission process. The CEE wanted the HC to approve the list of 100 candidates submitted by the CEE after the spot admission.
