THE CREDENTIALS of students admitted to private dental and medical colleges under the non-resident Indians (NRI) quota during the current session are being checked by the Judge’s Committee for Monitoring the Admission Process in Private Professional Colleges. This process was started reportedly after some complaints in this regard were lodged with the State Medical Education Department.
A total of 14 students under the category were on Friday summoned to the office of the Judge’s Committee along with relevant documents and were questioned by the Judge’s Committee.
This is the second batch of students to be so summoned by the committee, sources said. Of the students summoned on Friday, nine were from R D Gardi Medical College, Ujjain, one from People’s Dental College, Bhopal and four from Modern Dental College, Indore.
Five per cent of seats in all private medical and dental colleges are reserved under the NRI quota. There are stringent stipulations for students to be eligible under this quota.
