On Friday, the Telangana High Court suspended the decision of the Medical Council of India (MCI), Telangana government and Kaloji Narayana Rao University of Health Sciences (KNRUHS) that permits government and private medical colleges to surrender PG diploma seats for which in-service candidates are given preference in the 2020-21 academic year.

The central and the state government allowed the medical colleges to surrender their PG Diploma seats and get an equal number of PG medicine seats in their place.

The High Court found fault with the MCI and KNRUHS or allowing the medical colleges in the state to completely dismantle the system of in-service government doctors upgrading their skills through acquiring PG diplomas in their respective fields.

The division bench, comprising Justices MS Ramachandra Rao and T Amarnath Goud, directed the authorities concerned to continue with the old practice of giving weightage to in-service candidates.

It passed this order in a petition filed by an in-service doctor, P Bhavana, who was aspiring to become a PG diploma holder in medical radio diagnosis.

The court states that it will adversely affect the in-service MBBS doctors as weightage given to their rural service will become useless because there are no PG Diploma seats left in the state for them to secure and pursue higher studies on account of strange exchange policy adopted and followed by state and centre.

Further, the court stated that action of the MCI, government and KNRUHS is arbitrary and unreasonable, and violates Articles 14 and 21 of the Constitution, the bench observed.

“This court also takes judicial notice of the fact that recently the Telangana Admissions and Fee Regulatory Authority doubled the tuition fee for PG medical courses from Rs. 3.8 lakh per year to Rs. 7.6 lakh.”

Court added that the policy of MCI and the government only benefits private medical colleges and deprives the poor of the service of an efficient government doctor. The bench also stated that this is no way to treat our government doctors who are ageing a relentless battle against Covid-19.

It posted the matter to June 1.
