Seat blocking racket in Medical Colleges: HC notice to MCI & COMEDK
Bangalore, Jan 28, 2013, DHNS:

The High Court on Monday issued notices to the State Government, the Medical Council of India (MCI) and the Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (Comed-K) following a public interest litigation seeking a curb on seat-blocking racket in admissions to professional colleges.

The petition filed by Prof Ambalike Hiriyanna said 24 students had blocked medical seats for gain and, eventually dropped out of the Kempegowda Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS).

Petitioners also sought a detailed probe in to the issue. A division bench comprising acting Chief Justice K Sreedhar Rao and Justice Abdul Nazeer issued notices and directed them to file objections with a week.

Petitioners alleged that the seat-blocking row rampant in allotment of medical seats in the State. As per a clause in the consensual agreement of the State government with the professional institutes, all unfilled government quota seats have to be surrendered back to college managements.

The managements eventually convert them to “management quota” seats.

Some merit students fall prey to the management lobby and take part in the seat-blocking racket, said the petitioner.
