The Supreme Court on Friday allowed medical colleges across the country, whose recognitions could not be renewed by the Medical Council of India (MCI) due to some deficiencies, to admit students after the institutions assured that the shortcomings would be removed.

A bench headed by AR Dave allowed medical colleges to function and directed their heads to give an undertaking that there was no defect in their institutions.

“We direct the petitioners to file undertakings by the president/chairman and secretary of the institutions running the medical colleges within 10 days from today (Friday) to the effect that there is no defect in the medical colleges run by them and they would also state that their deposit with the MCI, which is around Rs 10 crore, be forfeited by way of penalty if the statement made in the undertaking is found to be incorrect at the time of the next inspection,” it said.

The bench said, “Looking at the peculiar facts and circumstances of the case and, especially when several seats for medical admission are likely to remain vacant for the academic year 2014-15, we are of the view that these matters require urgent consideration and we are giving these interim directions.”
