Fate of MBBS/BDS candidate still uncertain

IMPHAL, August 8: The fate of the Manipur MBBS/BDS candidates for the academic year 2013 is still uncertain. On April 19, 2013, the Medical Directorate, Govt of Manipur had made an official notification that the Manipur MBBS/BDS entrance test would be held on June 9, 2013. Admit cards for the entrance test were issued to 5753 candidates.

However, the said MBBS/BDS entrance test was cancelled by a decision of the State Cabinet. Instead, the MBBS/BDS selection would be made from the CBSE conducted NEET merit list which was published in the local dailies on June 7, 2013 it said.

In the mean time, ten candidates out of the 5753 candidates who got admit cards for the entrance test challenged the decision of the State Cabinet by filling a petition at the High Court of Manipur on June 10, 2013. The Court had admitted the petition and its necessary proceedings were going on in the Court till date.

Although the High Court of Manipur has fixed a date for the hearing of the case on August 6, 2013, it was rescheduled on August 8 for final hearing while the Court has directed to those interested parties in the case to submit their argument before August 7, 2013.

As the case was enlisted in the ‘cause list’ of the court today, the hearing of the case started. However, the Court adjourned the hearing till August 14, 2013 as the Chief Justice of the High Court of Manipur, Abhay Manohar Sapre was on leave and will return here on August 13.

It is noteworthy to mention here that Regional Institute of Medical Sciences has already begun MBBS/BDS session for the academic year 2013 while the 30 seats of Manipur quota is now lying vacant and all the state seats of the Jawaharlal Nerhu Institute of Medical Sciences are also laying vacant.
