City-based Medicos Legal Action Group (MLAG) criticised the Medical Council of India (MCI) and the government for confusion in the admission process for medical aspirants here on Friday. MLAG convener Neeraj Nagpal said, “Each student has a right to know as to how many seats were going to be available to compete for in his quota at the time he takes admission to Class 11. It is depressing for a student, who is sure to get admission based on his result in entrance exam, to be suddenly told that he will not get a seat as the number has been reduced, transferred, or eligibility changed at the last moment.”
Nagpal added that already strained to the limit due to stress, any of the students could attempt an unfortunate step due to depression.
The group said government had every right to decide the number of seats, eligibility criterion and reservation policy in various categories, but these should not be last-minute decisions which would affect the hard work of students.
