The Supreme Court said that if a meritorious and deserving student is denied admission without fault, then the court can order admission of that student. The court can either increase the number of seats for that student or cancel the admission of the student at the bottom of the merit list. The court said that in the event of the cut-off date (September 30) of the current session ending, the student can be admitted from the management quota in the next session. In such a situation, the student can be given compensation besides admission.
In such a situation, the student can be given compensation besides admission.
In fact, a bench of Justices Arun Mishra, Justice MR Shah and Justice BR Gavai passed the order while disposing of two contradictory decisions of the Supreme Court regarding admission to MBBS. The bench said, “If a meritorious student is denied admission without fault and he knocks on the court on time, then not giving him proper relief will be like denial of justice.” The bench set aside the 2014 verdict which said that such students can only be compensated as relief. The bench said that this is not true justice. This cannot be accepted. For a meritorious student, enrollment in medical course is the turning point of his life.
