Ms. Mamata Banerjee,
Hon’ble Chief Minister
Govt. of West Bengal
Writer’s Building Kolkata -700001
Sub : Regarding fresh registration of candidates for the admission to the undergraduate medical courses (MBBS/BDS) for 488 seats in the third round of counseling, clear violation of Medical Council of India (MCI) rules & regulation and also Supreme Court orders.
With due respect and humble submission I like to draw your kind attention regarding following matter :
- The health department, Govt. of West Bengal, has issued the notification for the third round of counseling to conduct fresh registration of candidates on 21 August 2013. But conduction of fresh registration of candidates at this level is flouting rules framed by the Medical Council of India (MCI), a gazette notification on 1 March, 2004 published in Part III Section 4 of the Gazette of India. The future of the candidates will be jeopardized due to the delay in registration which will lead to the cancellation of medical candidature of many students. Same incidence has happened recently for Post Graduate Medical Trainee for the session 2012-15 whose candidature is rejected by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India due to delay admission without maintaining the time schedule of MCI for the course.
- As per notification issued by Director of Medical Education & Ex-Officio Secretary to the Govt. of West Bengal on dated 18.06.2013 it was clear that last date of submission of e-challan for registration in undergraduate medical counseling process for the session 2013-14 was 10th July, 2013. All eligible candidates have to submit their registration fee within 10th July, 2013 only through e-challan.
The Secretary of Medical Council of India by a letter vide memo no. MCI-34(MC)/2012-GEN/158572 dated 08.02.2013 advised all the State Govts. to strictly follow the “Graduate Medical Education Regulations” while making admissions in MBBS Course.
Now the choice locking for 3rd round counseling is between 12th to 15th September, 2013 and process of seat allotment – Round 3 is 16th – 17th September, 2013; Result publication 18th September, 2013; Admission 23rd to 25th September, 2013.
- In MCI Regulations on graduate medical Education -1997, page no. 85-86, also MCI Public Notice dated 25-08-2012 and MCI letter dated 08-02-13 to West Bengal state’s medical education/health secretary & DME, it is clear that seat allotment after 1st round of counseling will be from the waiting list only. Even those who have not joined the course after selection in 1st round, they will also lose the chance of joining in successive 2nd & 3rd rounds of counseling.
All students already admitted to MBBS & BDS courses, transferee students, wait-listed students, and also newly registered students as per notification of 3rd counseling, all together around 1,200 NEET (UG) 2013 ranker for state of West Bengal will be involved in 3rd counseling notification. Total number of vacant seats exist around 488. Last date of admission to MBBS & BDS course for the session is 30th Sept. After the stipulated date, either State or MCI or Central Govt. or Hon’ble High Court have no power to admit student(s) for the course, only Supreme Court can consider the matter.
In this year, Union Territory Chandigarh had also announced fresh registration for the vacant seats of their 3rd round counseling in their place. But in a judgment the High Court of Punjab and Haryana on 08.08.2013 clearly stated mentioning the case of Priya Gupta Versus State of Chhattishgarh & Ors., 2012 (7) SCC 433 that their notification is against MCI Rules. It is, thus, his submission that the U. T. Chandigarh could not have invited fresh applications as in terms of the observations of the Hon’ble Supreme Court none of the authorities are vested with the powers of relaxing, varying or disturbing the time schedule or the procedures of admission as provided in the judgment of the Hon’ble Supreme Court and the Medical Council of India Regulations. In fact, his submission is that the Hon’ble Supreme Court has been quite categorical that to act to the contrary would be a contemptuous and, thus, MCI could not have extended any date without leave of the Hon’ble Supreme Court or give sanctity to a fresh process for vacant seats.
- In the said case of Punjab and Haryana High Court, we may note that one of the submissions of the learned counsel for the MCI is based on the observations made in Priya Gupta Versus State of Chhattishgarh & Ors., 2012 (7) SCC 433. It is his contention that the schedules as stated therein cannot be altered as they have been declared by the Hon’ble Supreme Court to be the law of land in terms of Article 141(Article 141 in The Constitution Of India 1949 Law declared by Supreme Court to be binding on all courts The law declared by the Supreme Court shall be binding on all courts within the territory of India) of the Constitution of India and forming part of the regulations of the MCI.
- That the fresh set of seats will get added to the system, if any, which is due to latest approvals of MCI, it was announced by Medical Counseling Committee to students before 1st round of counseling.
Accordingly the Hon’ble Supreme Court on India in the final verdict of case no. TC (C) 98/2012 order dated 18.07.2013 in clause 163 it was mentioned likewise “ The Transferred Cases and the Writ Petitions are, therefore, allowed and the impugned Notifications Nos. MCI-31(1)/2010-MED/49068, and MCI.18(1)/2010-MED/49070, both dated 21st December, 2010, published by the Medical Council of India along with Notification Nos. DE-22-2012 dated 31st May, 2012, published by the Dental Council of India and the amended Regulations sought to be implemented thereunder along with Notification Nos. DE-22-2012 dated 31st May, 2012, published by the Dental Council of India, are hereby quashed. This will not, however, invalidate actions so far taken under the amended Regulations, including the admissions already given on the basis of the NEET conducted by the Medical Council of India, the Dental Council of India and other private medical institutions, and the same shall be valid for all purposes.”
After the above mentioned order of the Apex Court, any further notification regarding new registration for counseling after the date 18th July, 2013, is a clear invalidate action. It is a clear violation of the order of the Supreme Court.
7. In Frequently asked questions for Round-3 (NEW) by MCC it is mentioned who are eligible and who are not.
Q. No. 15: Who are eligible for 3rd Round of allotment ?
Group–I : Registered candidates who did not get any seat allotment
in the 1st or 2nd round of seat allotment and are required to submit fresh choices as per the vacancies shown.
Group-II : Registered candidates , whose allotted Seats in 1st Round or 2nd round have been cancelled due non-production of requisite documents
GROUP-III : Registered candidates, whose allotted reserved quota
Seats in 1st Round or 2nd round have been cancelled during the document verification, due to change of Category from reserved to Unreserved or PH status from Yes to No, would still be eligible in the next round of seat allotment subject to fulfillment of eligibility conditions, with changed criteria. They also require submitting fresh choices.
Group–IV: Candidates who have given option for participation in 3rd round at the time of 1st and/or 2nd round reporting at allotted institutions.
Group V: Not reported due to any reason at Allotted Institute after seat allotment in either 1st or 2nd rounds.
Group VI: Reported & Withdrawn/resigned from seat at the Allotted Institute
Group VII: Candidates who previously did not opt for up-gradation for round 3 at the time of taking admission.
Group VIII: Candidates who have newly registered after submission of
e-challan within the stipulated days of online registration for round 3.
As per rules and regulation of MCI, only Group I and Group IV candidates can join the 3rd round of counseling for vacant seats. In notification for 3rd round of counseling giving a fresh chance for admission to all other Groups except mentioned two, is against Graduate Medical Education Regulations, 1997.
Admission of many student may be cancelled. As a result many seats will remain vacant as 30th September is the last day for undergraduate admission. A major chaotic situation will arise like the mentioned post graduate seats of 2012-15 session. About 1500 students and also all the permitted colleges like IQ City Medical College Durgapur, Joka ESIC Medical College, Murshidabad, Malda Medical College etc will face great troubles. There will be huge monetary loss of State Govt. and Health Care System will run through severe disturbance and those officials related with the violation of schedule of completion of Admission Process for 1st MBBS Course, will be under the provision of contempt of Court as per Supreme Court Order.
My appeal before you, to consider the gravity of the matter take necessary action to rescue the students from this grave situation.

Students may pay for state flouting MCI rules
07 Sep 2013
The state health department’s decision to conduct fresh registration for the admission of candidates to the undergraduate medical courses in the third round of counselling, flouting one of the key rules framed by the Medical Council of India (MCI), may lead to the cancellation of medical seats in many of the state-run medical colleges from the next academic session.
The MCI, in a gazette notification on 1 March, 2004 said that all the states and medical colleges must complete their registration from June to July every year. The Supreme Court, in an order, asked the states to strictly follow the MCI guideline, the violation of which may lead to contempt of court, fines and imprisonment.
The health department issued notification for the third round of counseling to conduct fresh registration for the candidates on 21 August this year. Hence, the future of the candidates may be jeopardised due to the delay in registration of candidates.
Sources in the health department said that around 1,200 medical aspirants would get admission through the third round of counselling. Of them, around 341 seats in the state will be filled by the candidates whose names were featured in the merit list but who did not get an admission in the permitted medical colleges. The rest are the candidates who had already got admission in some of the medical colleges in the districts and are participating in the third round of counselling to secure a seat in one of the city medical colleges. Permitted medical colleges will lose some of the existing seats if the MCI does not approve the new registration and these permitted colleges will not be able to admit the candidates after 30 September, as per the MCI rule.
Permitted medical colleges are those who need the MCI’s permission for admitting candidates annually. These are the College of Medicine & Sagore Dutta Hospital in Kamarhati, College of Medicine and JNM Hospital in Kalyani, Murshidabad Medical College and Hospital, Malda Medical College and Hospital, ESIC-PGIMSR & Medical College Joka, and a private medical college, IQ City Medical Durgapur. Dr Amiya Kumar Maity, a medical expert, said: “The state government should be little cautious while issuing a notification. There had been instances where the MCI did not regularise the courses in the state due to the violation of rules.”

MBBS: Health dept issues counselling notification in violation of SC order
28 Aug 2013
Kolkata, 27 August The state health department has issued a fresh notification for the third round of counselling for admission to MBBS and BDS courses, flouting an order of the Supreme Court.
The notification, dated 21 August asked the candidates who had cleared the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) to submit their registration fees through e-challan between 23 August and2 September.
Experts said the decision to conduct a third round of counselling violated the SC order as the court had quashed the examination, validating only those admissions which have already been made, or the process of which had already been started at the time of the order. They also feel that the future of around 1200 candidates may be in jeopardy if their admissions get cancelled in the future.
On previous occasions, Calcutta High Court had scrapped the candidature of some MD/MS students whose admissions were done in violation of guideline framed by the Medical Council of India.
The SC in its 18 July order, declared the NEET to be unconstitutional,but validated admissions which were already done before the order was issued, or those for which the process had already been started by the states and private medical colleges on the basis of NEET. But the state health department issued a fresh notification for the third round of counselling only six days ago, which is not in keeping with the order of the highest court. The parents of many of the candidates are planning to approach Calcutta High Court against the decision.
In a significant order, the Punjab and Haryana High Court on Thursday quashed a controversial notification to extend the last date of receiving applications for the enhanced 50 MBBS seats at the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) in Sector 32, Chandigarh.
The GMCH-32 had, on August 1, issued the notification to effectively extend the last date of applications for the undergraduate course from the original June 24, as was mentioned in the prospectus, to August 6.
Also, the High Court directed the Chandigarh Administration and the GMCH-32 authorities to reject all such applications, which were received after June 24, which was the last date of receiving applications.
The High Court further ordered to proceed with the counselling, which was scheduled to begin at 9.30 am on Thursday but was on Wednesday postponed till the disposal of the case.
A bench, headed by Justice Rakesh Kumar Jain pronounced the order in an open court on a writ petition filed by an aggrieved student Arpit Agrawal, who had challenged the calling of fresh applications for the additional 50 undergraduate seats at GMCH-32.
Counsels for the petitioners further prayed before the court to take up the matter of alleged acceptance of incomplete applications against whose names various deficiencies were pointed out in the list of eligible candidates which was published by the GMCH-32, against the terms and conditions of the prospectus and were liable to be rejected.
On this issue, the court allowed the petitioner to reserve the right to take up the matter when more information is available in this regard.
It is pertinent to note that several such candidates had already been selected in the first round of counselling held on July 29 and 30.The bench also took note of the fact that the last date for admission to the MBBS/BDS course for the current session 2013-2014 was September 30, as held by the Supreme Court in its order passed on July 4 in Mridul Dhar’s case.
Earlier, the senior standing counsel for Chandigarh Administration Sanjay Kaushal, while defending the GMCH-32’s action, argued that the Medical Council of India (MCI) had invited proposals from Government Medical Colleges for additional seats of MBBS on February 8, and accordingly the GMCH-32 had applied for the increase in MBBS seats from 50 to 100 on July 12, and the same was received by MCI on July 15.
Further, MCI raised certain objections to the proposals on the ground of certain deficiencies, which were removed later. “Accordingly, a fresh admission notice was issued on August 1 for inviting fresh applications,” he contended.
The petitioner’s counsels Puneet Gupta and Anil Rana had contended that approximately 1,600 MBBS seats were increased in 32 Government Medical Colleges across the country and no other college or state government had inviting fresh applications for the increased seats and were using the available merit list of candidates, who had already registered with the concerned medical colleges or state governments.
The petitioner had also alleged several irregularities in the admission process at GMCH-32 while accepting applications which were either incomplete or late. “The first list, which was published by GMCH-32 on July 4 (10 days after the last date of application), had only 127 names in it.

HC jolt to late MBBS applicants
TNN Aug 9, 2013, 04.03AM IST
CHANDIGARH: Hopes of several aspirants from Tricity — who had applied for admission to MBBS course in Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), Sector 32, Chandigarh, after the increase in seats by Medical Council of India — dashed on Thursday, when the Punjab and Haryana high court quashed the UT’s notification on extending the last date of applications beyond June 24.
With this, all those who had applied for admission to GMCH-32 after June 24, in the wake of increase in seats from 50 to 100, will not be able to get admission to the college. Now, the merit-list will be prepared only on the basis of applications received till June 24.
Justice R K Jain of the HC passed these orders while allowing a petition filed by Arpit Agarwal, who was awaiting admission to GMCH in the second-round of counselling.
On August 1, the Chandigarh administration had issued a notification, extending the last date of application for MBBS course from June 24 to August 6. This action of inviting fresh applications had triggered the controversy.
Fifty are additional seats available due to enhancement in intake capacity, permitted by the Medical Council of India as a one-time measure for the academic session 2013-2014 for 32 medical colleges, government and private, throughout the country.
The petitioner had sought quashing of the decision of the Chandigarh administration of inviting fresh applications, as the last date of submission of registration forms was June 24. “Despite the fact that the prospectus specifically provided that incomplete applications were liable to be rejected and application forms will not be entertained after June 24, the college accepted the incomplete forms as well as accepted forms after the last date,” the petitioner argued.
The petitioner had also claimed that the other colleges, where the enhancement of 50 seats for MBBS course has been permitted, were following the original merit-list without inviting new applications.
However, defending its decision of inviting applications after June 24, the UT administration had said on Wednesday that the decision was taken to give opportunity to those meritorious students who could not apply in view of lesser number of seat advertised earlier.
Punjab Haryana HC asks Chandigarh Administration to reject all MBBS Applications
August 9th, 2013
The High Court of Haryana and Punjab has cancelled the notification issued by Government Medical College and Hospital -32 for last date of submission of applications forms for MBBS course.
The HC has directed the Chandigarh Administration and medical college authorities to reject all applications that were received after the last date which was June 24.
Punjab Haryana HC asks Chandigarh Administration to reject all MBBS Applications. Admissions now are to be made on the basis of the earlier merit list. As per the brochure issued by the GMCH, the last date to receive application forms was June 24.
The controversy came up on account of the administration’s action to invite fresh applications for 50 seats. These are additional seats available due to enhancement in intake capacity, permitted by the Medical Council of India as a one-time measure for the academic session 2013-2014, throughout the country.

Sub – To restrain the Centre’s move to reintroduce National Eligibility cum Entrance Test ( NEET) and abide by the Supreme Court (SC) ruling.
With due respect and humble submission I like to draw your kind attention regarding following matter -:
On 18th July the Hon’ble SC of India has delivered the final verdict on NEET case of TC (C) No. 98/2012 and other related 114 cases. In 203 pages order, the SC quashed the applicability of NEET. The SC ordered that NEET is unconstitutional and it is against the article 19, 25, 26, 29, 30, 370, 371D etc. of Indian constitution.
The Union Health Ministry wants to file a review petition. If so it will be an endless process. This will create confusion and frustration among students and guardians.
NEET (UG) syllabus was same as CBSE syllabus, so the CBSE Board students have got advantage, low talented students got chances in more. Excess syllabus of NEET (UG) in comparison to other Boards, more talented students fail to secure better rank in NEET (UG).
My appeal before you, to consider the gravity of the matter and to restrain the Centre’s move to reintroduce NEET and abide by the SC ruling for the benefits of the majority of the students , guardians and people of India.
With best regards ,
