Odisha Government will submit a report in Odisha High Court tomorrow regarding the relocation and readmission status of Jaring based Sardar Rajas Medical College students.
A day before the report is submitted; Joint Director of DMET (Directorate of Medical Education and Training) Umakant Satpathy today told newsmen that all the 124 students of the college have been given provisional admission in two government and three private medical colleges of the state.
“The provisional admission process was completed today and the students have been asked to report to their new colleges between December 24 and 30. We would apprise the government regarding the admissions tomorrow and then the government will submit a report in the High Court on this count,” said Satpathy.
As per information provided by DMET, out of the 124 students of the college; 55 have been 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 have been admitted to Bhubaneswar based private medical colleges such as Hi Tech Medical College, KIIMS and Institute of Medical Sciences and Sum Hospital.
It may be mentioned here that the students of the government medical colleges, however, are not happy over the arrangements and have knocked the doors of the High Court and the Supreme Court challenging the relocation apart from organizing widespread agitations.
They had filed a misc case in the High Court as recently as December 17. Earlier, they had filed another misc case in the High Court praying it to put a stay order on its earlier decision that allowed the students of the Jaring based medical college entry into the government colleges. Besides, the next hearing of their case in the Supreme Court has been scheduled for January 5.
