Royal Medical Trust (Regd.) and Ors. v. Union of India (UOI) and Ors. - (Supreme Court) (20 Aug 2015)
Fresh intake of students allowed in medical colleges seeking renewal of permission to set up new college or increase seats
The Supreme Court held that though it was for the Central Government to extend or modify time limits under the Establishment of Medical College Regulations, it was required to follow the deadline for making admissions to the first MBBS course as was laid down by the Court in previous decisions. In the instant case, colleges seeking to set up anew or increase the number of MBBS seats in the first year were held to have missed the deadline and were not entitled to relief. However, the Court affirmed previous decisions that allowed colleges seeking renewal of permission to set up new colleges and increase seats to grant fresh admissions in the first year of the MBBS course.
