Passing an interim order on a batch of writ petitions on Friday Justice N.Kirubakaran has directed authorities of Directorate of Medical Education, Tamil Nadu to make submission of Aadhaar card and its photocopy by medical course aspirants as compulsory during the counseling.

 

The petitioners, in the writ petitions, alleged that other state students were admitted to medical courses in the state without ascertaining genuineness of their nativity. They also affect the opportunity of medical course aspirants hailing from Tamil Nadu to get benefit under the state quota.
