Enrol students on merit basis: SC
Jun 29, 2017-
The Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday ordered the medical colleges to admit students under the post graduate programme on merit basis.
A single bench of Acting Chief Justice Gopal Prasad Parajuli also ordered the colleges to follow the fee structure fixed by the Tribhuvan University.
Flouting the government’s decision and the SC’s interim order that the admissions should be based on merit, the colleges are found to have been enrolling students through illegal process.
Following the court order, those who were admitted by the Universal Medical College, Bhairahawa and the National Medical College, Birgunj from outside the merit list would automatically be scrapped.
Earlier, the two colleges had denied admission to the students, whose names appeared on the merit list of the Tribhuvan University Institute of Medicine, citing that they had already filled their quotas. Following which the students moved the apex court, calling for ensuring their admission to the colleges on the merit basis.
