Bhawanipatna, Dec 15:
The two-day long registration process for the admission of Odisha’s Jaring based Sardar Rajas Medical College and Hospital students began today.
The students would need to complete the registration on the DMET (Directorate of Medical Education & Training) website. Admission will be done based on AIPMT (All India Pre-Medical Test) ranking on December 22 and 23 and the students will need to report in their new colleges between December 24 and 30.
Out of the 124 students of the college; 55 would be relocated to Berhampur based MKCG Medical College and Hospital, another 54 to Burla based Veer Surendra Sai Institute of Medical Sciences and Research and the remaining 15 students would be admitted to Bhubaneswar based private medical colleges such as Hi Tech Medical College, KIIMS; Institute of Medical Sciences and Sum Hospital.
Notably, as directed by the High Court, the DMET authorities had issued a notification for the registration last Friday.
While the admission of students for MKCG and Hi Tech will be held on December 22, the admission in VIMSAR, KIIMS and SUM will be held on December 23, as per the notification.
On the other hand, students of MKCG and VIMSAR have filed a petition in the Supreme Court challenging the High Court’s order to allow Sardar Rajas students in their colleges. They have also filed a misc case in the High Court seeking to put a stay order on its earlier decision.
“We all have our faith on the justice system. Our brothers from other medical colleges have approached the Supreme Court seeking a stay on the High Court’s decision to allow us in their colleges. I am hopeful that the apex court will do justice to us,” said President of Sardar Rajas Medical College and Hospital Sameer Krishna Reddy.
“We had been under stress since past three-four months. Now that the registration has started, we at least have a door open for us. We are happy that we are soon going to resume our studies in medical colleges,” he added.
