The Supreme Court has observed that no sympathies can be shown to medical students, who have entered through the backdoor. The Division Bench of Justices L. Nageswara Rao, B. R. Gavai and Krishna Murari passed this order on August 17, while hearing a review petition filed by Abdul Ahad and others. The petitioners have approached the Court, seeking review of the order passed by the Court dated July 20, 2020, dismissing the Special Leave Petition filed by Glocal University, Glocal Medical College, Super Specialty Hospital & Research Centre, and Abdul Waheeb Education & Charitable Trust. The review petitioners said they appeared in the National Eligibility Entrance Test 2016 and qualified the same. Therefore, they became eligible to get admission in MBBS course.
The September 2 notification was challenged before the High Court of Allahabad by way of Writ Petition and other connected writ petitions. The said pleas were decided on September 15, 2016 by the Division Bench of Allahabad High Court. The order dated September 15, 2016, passed by the Division Bench of Allahabad High Court, came to be challenged by the original writ petitioners before the Court by way of Special Leave Petition. According to the review petitioners, they appeared for First Year Professional MBBS examination and cleared the same. However, Glocal Medical College did not conduct the examination for the 2nd year MBBS and further, the classes and practicals were also suspended by the College. Neeraj Kishan Kaul, Senior Counsel appearing for the review petitioners, submitted that they were duly qualified to be admitted in as much as, they had cleared the NEET examination. He further submitted that the review petitioners were admitted through the counselling conducted by the Glocal Medical College.
Not only that, they have also cleared the first year and second year examinations. It is, therefore, submitted that it will not be in the interest of justice to throw the review petitioners at this point of time. The bench held that, The Notification issued by the State of Uttar Pradesh on the basis of the law laid down by this Court clearly provided that the admissions were to be done only through the centralized admission process. Glocal Medical College in contravention of the said Notification conducted private counselling, which was not at all permissible in law. The students cannot be said to be ignorant about the Notification issued by the State of Uttar Pradesh.
