The state Directorate of Medical Education & Research (DMER) on Friday said that with a petition still pending for hearing at the Supreme Court (SC), admissions conducted by deemed institutes will be subject to the court’s final orders.
A circular on the DMER website mentioned three petitions filed by the state in the SC against a Bombay high court order, which allowed deemed institutes to conduct their own admission process, and that the final order of SC may or may not affect the ongoing admissions in these institutes in Maharashtra.
“The SC has accepted our petitions. The next hearing will be on September 14. The idea is to implement combined admissions for all institutes for the benefit of students,” said Dr Pravin Shingare, director, DMER.
Meanwhile, barely six months after the state government appointed Chandrashekhar Oak as full-time commissioner for the state Common Entrance Test (CET) Cell, he has been transferred to the election commission office. Parents and students have raised concerns over his transfer at this stage as he is aware of their problem.
