FOLLOWING A hiatus of about a month following a court case and appointment of Judges’ Committee to overlook the process, the Association of Private Dental and Medical Colleges of Madhya Pradesh, is ready to conduct entrance exams for private medical and dental colleges on August 13 as announced earlier.
The association has got a go ahead from the Judge’s Committee led by Justice Chandresh Bhushan (retired) to conduct the admission test on the earlier announced date.
Speaking to Hindustan Times, Justice Bhushan said the association had the right to conduct the entrance test as per the directive of Supreme Court. The only thing the committee is supposed to ensure is that the admission process is fair, transparent and without possibility of exploitation of the students.
“We have examined the system proposed by the association and the entire scenario and as of now we are satisfied that the process is likely to be fair transparent and non-exploiting,’’ Justice Bhushan said adding the committee will keep a keen eye on the further process. He also added there were some loopholes that came to the notice of the committee, but they were plugged.
As for conducting exams on the earlier scheduled day, Justice Bhushan said it was a matter of the life of students and thus the committee quickened the decision.
LAST DATE JULY 31: Consequently the association today came out with a notice asking students to submit application forms for the MP D-MAT –2006 by July 31 at the latest. The notice mentioned the exam will be conducted as per the prior schedule on August 13.
Application forms will not be accepted after the last date with late fees. Rather, the late fees collected from some students earlier will be returned.
The association also mentioned application forms could be downloaded from the website of the association at www.mpdmat.org and sent across along with due fees. If the students do not get admit cards by August 10, they can collect the duplicate cards at the exam hall. Also students who already submitted forms earlier need to re-submit the applications, the association said.
