New Delhi: The Supreme Court has extended by two weeks the September 30 deadline of completing admission process for MBBS in medical colleges in Maharashtra, dismissing a plea by Medical Council of India.





The order was passed by the apex court considering the fact that some of the medical colleges in the state had enhanced the seats but were denied permission by the Medical Council of India (MCI) to take admission for extra seats as they fell few days short of the mandatory 10 years of completion of their functioning.

MCI had challenged the Bombay High Court order allowing two Government Medical Colleges—Indira Gandhi Government Medical College, Nagpur and Government Medical College, Akola to fill additional seats created by them though they were few days short of mandatory 10 years.

An apex court bench comprising justices K S Radhakrishnan and A K Sikri on Monday permitted the Director of Medical Education, Maharashtra to finalise the admission of students in view of the newly enhanced 100 seats to the two Government Medical Colleges by October 14.
