Thiruvananthapuram: The centre has opposed giving sanction to the three medical colleges where admissions have been cancelled for want of the approval by the Medical Council of India. 

The centre made its stand clear in the Supreme Court  when the appeals  for approving the admissions to 100 seats in Al-Azhar Medical College and Superspecialty Hospital, Thodupuzha,  and 150 seats each in  DM Institute of Medical Sciences, Wayanad, and Mount Zion Medical College, Pathanamthitta, came up on Wednesday. Their admissions were earlier cancelled by the Supreme court for lack of MCI approval.

The centre said that the earlier verdict of the Supreme Court  should be considered before deciding on the approval of these colleges. The petition was later posted for  further hearing on September 20.

The Supreme Court had on Tuesday said  that applications submitted for permission to admit students for the academic year 2017-18 would  be treated as those for the academic year 2018-19 since the cut-off date for admissions to MBBS course for academic year 2017-18 was over and the academic session had  commenced.

No petition will be entertained from any institution, college, society, trust or any party for grant of letter of permission to admit students to MBBS course for the academic year 2017-18, the court said.   However, these petitions were related to those colleges which did not admit students this year.
