Injustice meted out to students seeking admissions into Medical Colleges through CAP.
Nagpur: While following the Supreme Court’s directives, the State Government’s Medical Education and Research Directorate admit students into Medical Colleges through Central Admission Process.
However Former Advocate General Dr Madhav Shrihari Aney claimed that the students of Vidarbha and Maratwada are facing partiality and injustice for the past many years in the Central Admission Process of MBBS Courses.
He alleged that seventy percent of the seats are reserved for the region where the examination conducted by the State Government. There are about 750 seats available for the students of Vidarbha region. According to him only 433 seats are available for the students of Vidarbha region. While considering this, the percentage of seats made available for other regions are significantly more.
The percentage of seats available for other parts of the state is said to be 1610 and the regional quota of seats is 871. Dr Madhav Shrihari Aney also alleged that the students of Western Maharashtra, who have scored lesser percentage than the Students of Vidarbha are still able to acquire seats in the Medical Colleges under the Regional Quota system.
Except for Vidarbha, the Merit List (Open Category) the students in Serial Number 4110 have also got admission, while the student from Vidarbha who is on the 47th serial number has not got admission.
In 2015, the number of admissions from Vidarbha is as follows
- Open Category 47
- OBC Category 84
- SC/ST Category 39
Similarly the number of admissions from Maratwada is as follows
- Open Category 195
- OBC Category 40
- SC/ST Category 35
A new admission process has been devised. In this system, to conduct an examination for the selection was there but the government had introduced a regional quota system. Dr Madhav Shrihari Aney claimed that this new law is not right and the admission examination conducted is illegal.
Former Advocate General Dr Madhav Shrihari Aney claimed that there should be one common merit list for the entire state and the students should be admitted irrespective of their region. He added that this case is subjudice and that the judgment is awaited. Aney also claimed that the members of Vidarbha Rajya Aghadi (VIRAA) and V-Connect will meet the Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and apprise him of the fault in the system.
When one state why not one rule
Former Advocate General Dr Madhav Shrihari Aney raised this important issue of how when on one hand when the government is speaking of one state one rule, why have they introduced the regional quota and displaying a step-motherly treatment to the students of Vidarbha. He demanded that there should be one merit list in the united and undivided Maharashtra. Dr Madhav Shrihari Aney added that there is a violation of Section 372(2). He claimed that this Section speaks of sanction of financial aid based on population.
