Justice S Vaidyanathan said “Under the guise of rectifying defects with regard to identification of remote/difficult, rural areas and primary health centres the government has not made the declaration on the basis of geographical parameters. The present identification certainly reduces the chances of getting a seat for other candidates (general candidates) who may not be entitled to such weightage marks”
 
Justice S. Vaidyanathan rejected their cases on the ground that no such reservation could be provided to in-service candidates under the all-India quota.

He passed the orders on two different pleas. One was moved by Dr P Pravin and others seeking to quash the GOs notifying remote/difficult and rural areas.The learned judge also quashed government orders dated March 9 and 23 notifying remote/difficult areas for incentive marks for in-service candidates to PG medical admission.
 
The exercise made by the committee based on which the government orders in question are issued are liable to be interfered with and hence both the orders are declared illegal, the judge added.
