HC quashes MCI circular on entrance test for NRIs


BENGALURU: The high court on Thursday quashed the January 16, 2015 circular issued by the Medical Council of India (MCI) on the entrance examination for NRI students for admission to the MBBS course from 2015-16.

Allowing a batch of petitions filed by SN Medical College, Bagalkot, and others, a division bench comprising Justices BS Patil and PS Dinesh Kumar officiating at the Dharwad bench held that as per the dictum of the apex court in the PA Inamdar case in 2005, either the Centre or the state government can bring in legislation to regulate admissions and the MCI circular runs contrary to it.
