Medical aspirant moves Madras HC to quash MBBS, BDS merit list

Medical aspirant moves Madras High Court

Expressing strong opposition against MBBS/BDS admission provided to students from other states under the government quota, a medical aspirant has moved the Madras High Court seeking to quash the provisional merit list. The court will hear the matter next week.

D Vignayya of Pudukkottai pleaded to the court to quash the August 23 provisional merit list issued by the secretary of selection committee and directorate of medical education, saying it was found that students who did not belong to Tamil Nadu were given admission. She said she belonged to a denotified community and had appeared for the national entrance-cum-eligibility test (NEET) and secured 206 marks.

She was called for counselling on August 29 after she had applied for admission to MBBS/BDS courses under the government quota.
