DELHI University told the High Court on Friday that it has decided to include post-graduate seats in its affiliated non-teaching medical colleges.
During the hearing before Justice S.K. Kaul, DU said it has reversed its earlier decision.
The university had not included the seats of non-teaching colleges in its prospectus for the entrance of PGMET-2004, in accordance with a decision made by the Medical Council of India (MCI) — the apex body regulating medical education.
The court sought a reply from DU and MCI on the plea of seven MBBS doctors who contended that the exclusion of seats from the non-teaching colleges were not compensated in medical colleges run by the university.
The court impleaded the Centre as respondent on the issue and fixed the matter for further hearing on September 8.
