Extending the deadline for Maharashtra to complete the process of medical admissions till October 7, the SC has ordered the state to fill vacant seats through centralized counseling.
As per reports, the court said, counseling should be done as a joint exercise by the Committee of the state government, which shall include one representative each from deemed universities.
The bench that tackled the issue was led by Justice AK Sikri. It added that second or third counselling, students will be taken by making a combined list of those who got themselves registered with the state government as well with the deemed universities.
Earlier, Bombay High Court, stayed the Government Resolution (GR) issued by Maharashtra government and the circular issued by the Centre, mandating combined counseling of aspirants for medical and dental courses.
Government Resolution mandates it for all deemed universities and dental colleges to admit students on the basis of the state-organized combined counseling/ centralized admission process.
