(1.) HEARD Mr. Manoj Tewari, Senior Advocate assisted by Mr. Alok Mehra, Advocate for petitioners and Mr. N.P. Sah, Standing Counsel on behalf of respondents 1 to 4.
(2.) LEARNED counsel for the petitioners has contended that similar controversy is there in writ petition o. 257 (M/S) of 2011, Ms. Subhra Gupta Versus State of Uttarakhand and others, which is pending for disposal and in that writ petition this court has granted interim relief in favour of the petitioner wherein relief sought was to withdraw the condition debarring the students appearing in Uttarakhand Post Graduate Medical Entrance Examination, 2011, who have passed M.B.B.S. through self finance/management quota.
By a perusal of the averment made in the writ petition the controversy appears to be of similar nature. In this writ petition the petitioners have also sought a writ in the nature of mandamus to declare condition No. (1)(a) and (1)(b) of the admission notice for Uttarakhand Post Graduate Medical Entrance Examination-2012 as illegal and arbitrary and further it is prayed to issue a writ in the nature of mandamus directing the respondents to grant admission to the petitioners in Post Graduate Medical Courses as per their merit secured in Uttarakhand Post Graduate Medical Entrance Examiation- 2012.
At the time of admission in the M.B.B.S. Course the eligibility criteria was that the students who have qualified the Combined Pre Medical Test conducted by the State of Uttarakhand or the State of U.P. or any other States. Since the petitioners have passed their M.B.B.S. Examination from the Government Medical College, the matter requires scrutiny whether such condition can be imposed against those students who have qualified the M.B.B.S. in the first year and thereafter passed the examination of M.B.B.S.
(3.) HAVING considered the submissions of learned counsel for the parties and after going through the papers on record, as an interim measure, it is directed that the petitioners, who were admitted in the Forest Hospital Trust Medical College on the basis of C.P.M.T. shall not be denied to appear in the counseling to be held on 9th April 2012 as has been stated in the writ petition, since the respondents have allowed them to appear in the entrance test of U.P.G.M.E.E.
The petitioners shall be allowed provisionally to appear in the counseling to be held on 9th April 2012, subject to the final decision of the writ petition.;
