No Admission for 65 Medical Seats in KGMU Despite Court Order

In July, MCI asked the university to exclude as many as 65 seats from the admission process this year citing infrastructural gap. However, the KGMU appealed against the order and the verdict went in their favor.

A bunch comprising Justice Sudhir Saxena stayed the MCI order and asked the U.P. government to take all necessary measures to grant admission for all available seats until further notice.

65 Medical Seats in KGMU

A bunch comprising Justice Sudhir Saxena stayed the MCI order and asked the U.P. government to take all necessary measures to grant admission for all available seats until further notice.

During the counseling, the medical education department asked students to submit a written undertaking acknowledging the fate of those 65 barred seats as well as their occupants

“This could have also meant cancellation of admission in case the High Court order was nullified by the Supreme Court,” an agitated parent from Gorakhpur said, as per the Times of India reports. Later, students and their parents also staged a protest condemning the whole fiasco.

“The matter would be sorted before second round of counseling begins on August 12,” said B S Bhullar, Principal Secretary, medical education.

An official closely involved with the admission process stated: “Overall rankings would shift upward while the vacant seats down the line would be filled during the second counseling session.” This essentially means that those candidates, who had taken admission in other colleges, can opt for those 65 seats based on merit.
