IN THE light of the Supreme Court’s decision of August 12, 2005 and a consequent proposal of the Association of Private Dental and Medical Colleges of Madhya Pradesh, the State Government has granted permission to the Association for conducting a common entrance test for academic session 2006-07 for these private colleges subject to certain conditions.

As per the order of the Supreme Court, the State Government would constitute a Judges Committee for monitoring of the procedure and rules made by the association for common entrance test and admission. Till constitution of Judges Committee, a monitoring committee constituted by the State Government would keep a watch on the proceedings.

Under the Supreme Court’s directives of August 12, 2005, the common entrance test would be conducted and a transparent procedure of admission on the basis of merit would be adopted. In case of violation of the Supreme Court’s order, the State Government would cancel the test and the admission procedure and take action at State-level for the admission.

The Judges Committee, as per directives of the Supreme Court, would fix the fees for private medical and dental colleges
for academic session 2006-07.

At present, the Judges Committee is not existent so the fees proposal of private medical and dental colleges would be presented before the Judges Committee to be constituted by the state government. The fees to be fixed by the committee would be charged from the students.

The Judges Committee would also determine the fees for NRI seats in private medical and dental colleges. The admission against NRI quota would also be given on merit basis as per the Supreme Court’s order. Fees for students from weaker sections would be subsidised from the fee to be charged from NRI students. The Judges Committee would approve the fee structure.

RECOGNITION CANCELLED: Meanwhile, the Medical Council of India (MCI) has cancelled the recognition of the MBBS course of RD Gardi Medical College, Ujjain.

Till the recognition is granted by the Medical Council of India and permission granted for admission to students for academic session 2006-07, no admission would be given in RD Gardi Medical College, Ujjain. Representatives nominated by the State Government would review the entrance exam and admission process at all levels.

The association would be responsible for smooth and proper conduct of the test at the centres within and outside the State.
The association would also form a committee for monitoring and control of common entrance test.
