Unreasonable rejections not acceptable: ASC
Kochi: In an effort to ensure transparency in MBBS/BDS admission in private self-financing medical colleges, the Admission Supervisory Committee has again intervened with yet another order against Kannur Medical College. The Principal, Kannur Medical College has been directed to immediately provide online application link under the Kannur Medical College website. Besides, the Committee has made it clear that 'unreasonable rejections of the applications with ulterior motives will be scrutinised seriously and consequential actions could be initiated.'
According to sources, the Committee had received many complaints alleging that the Kannur Medical College site did not contain online application link. Instead the link was made available in the MPCMA site. This caused confusion and lack of opportunity for the students to apply to the Kannur Medical College.
The Committee found the concern raised by the parents and students is genuine and directed the Principal of Kannur Medical College to immediately provide online application link under the Kannur Medical College website also.
The Medical College is further directed to give opportunity to the applicants to correct the defects, if any, in their online applications. "Unreasonable rejections of the applications with ulterior motives will be scrutinised seriously and consequential actions could be initiated," the Committee clarified.
