No relief to KMC students barred from exams due to low attendance

Justice K. Lakshman of the Telangana High Court, hearing a batch of writ petitions filed by students of Kamineni Medical College over being disallowed from writing exams due to low attendance, refused to condone the attendance shortage.

The petitioners contended that their attendance was not properly calculated. The judge observed that when a similar writ petition was rejected in an earlier case, the petitioners had moved a writ appeal in which the High Court had directed the candidates to appear for the examination.

However, in the present batch of matters, Justice Lakshman pointed out, the authorities of the Kaloji Narayan Rao University of Health Sciences and the National Medical Commission referred to the regulations of graduate medical education. It was alleged that the respondent college had not maintained the biometric attendance and therefore, the attendance was improperly calculated.

The judge, referring to various orders by different High Courts, refused to grant an interim order permitting students to take the examination. He also rejected a plea for appointment of a commission headed by an IAS or IPS officer, or a judge.
