Supreme Court says MCI can go ahead and implement common MBBS entrance test

The Supreme Court has paved the way for implementing Medical Council of India’s (MCI) notification providing for common entrance test for undergraduate medical courses leading to the award of MBBS degrees.

An apex court bench of Justice R V Raveendran and Justice A K Patnaik, while giving the go ahead to the MCI notification, said on Monday that anyone aggrieved by the notification could challenge it in court.

“If you (MCI) think you are independent and don’t require any approval from the centre, then you can go ahead with its implementation and if you think you need approval from the government, then go to it (government),” the bench said.

The court further told MCI that if it has already obtained the approval of the health ministry for issuing the notification providing for common entrance test for undergraduate medical courses, then it could go ahead with its implementation.

On October 21, 2010, MCI had issued a notification providing for common entrance test for undergraduate medical courses all over the country. However, this notification was kept in abeyance in the face of stiff opposition by the Tamil Nadu government. The state government subsequently obtained a stay against the notification from Madras High Court.

The apex court said that it could not continue hearing the matter. It said it will not say anything in the matter and if the apex body regulating medical education in the country thinks that it can implement its notification, then it can go ahead and do so. [Source: IANS]
