Hyderabad: The unauthorised nine-member scrutiny committee of the Sports Authority of Telangana State (SATS) that authenticated certificates of sportspersons applying for medical college seats in 2017-18, will be dissolved.
Following this, the government is likely to come up with new guidelines for SATS which will include forming a fresh committee that will validate merit certificates of students applying under sports quota for medical and dental colleges.
Speaking to this newspaper, a top government official said, “The independent committee dug deep into the allegations of corruption and submitted a report to the CMO. The government may issue a fresh order before the medical counselling begins. He said the new guidelines would emphasise on allocating seats to genuine deserving candidates.” Scrutiny process to be regid this year, he said.
He said, “It was found that parents of certain sportspersons who didn’t deserve a high rank in the priority list were in nexus with these SATS members. The scam broke out because a few sportspersons turned rebel and a complaint was filed with the CMO.”
