No PG admission to MBBS graduates from other states

LUCKNOW: The Lucknow bench of Allahabad high court on Tuesday quashed the provisions of a state government notification of March 9, whereby it was provided that MBBS passouts who had obtained their degree under all-India quota for MBBS courses from medical colleges situated outside UP were eligible for admission to PG courses in the state through NEET PG-2019.
Passing the order, a bench of Justice Alok Mathur said, “The state government by permitting students domiciled in Uttar Pradesh to participate in the counselling for NEET PG-2019 against the seats of state quota, is in sense giving ‘preference’, when looked into the fact that students who are domicile of other states having studied outside Uttar Pradesh are not allowed to participate in the selection process.”
Allowing the writ petition moved by some MBBS passouts from KGMU, who domiciled from other states, the court said, “The parties are at liberty to proceed with the counselling of the candidates selected through NEET PG-2019 for admission to the state quota of seats of postgraduate MD/MS/MDS courses in various government and private medical/dental colleges/institutions/state university and PG diploma courses, etc, on the basis of merit list prepared as per the eligibility for admission as per the schedule detailed in the UP Counselling Brochure.”
Under a new policy, the state government had decided to allow those passing MBBS from outside UP to do their MD and MS courses in the state.
As the counselling for admission to MBBS and PG courses is on, the medical education department order was challenged in the court.
The amendment in policy by the medical education department had caused a furore among MBBS passouts of the state.
