Even as the admission season is all set to begin in the city, those hoping to get a seat into Shri Dhanwantary Ayurvedic College, the only college which imparts education in ayurvedic medicine in the city, may be in for a disappointment.

The Sector-46 college, which remains unaffiliated to a university and also continues to await the mandatory annual approval from the Central Council for Indian Medicine, will be unable to conduct their admission process without fulfilling these criteria.

The college has been mired in controversy since 2009, after the Panjab University disaffiliated it.

Following this, the college approached the Punjab and Haryana high court and has since been conducting examinations under PU and admitting students upon court orders.

Sources from the college said that they have applied to Guru Ravi Das Ayurvedic University at Hoshiarpur, Punjab, for affiliation but the latter’s nodis still awaited.

College management secretary Naresh Mittal said, “Once we get a nod from the university we shall be rolling out the admission schedule.

Also, the annual approval from CCIM ine is expected by the end of June.”
