875 medical seats of the various government colleges were reverted to their respective states on September 17, 2015. Some students approached the Supreme Court with request to fill these seats on the basis of AIPMT 2015 merit list and not from the state merit list.
The Supreme Court stayed admissions against these 875 seats and has finally passed an order on October 1, giving an extension of a week’s time for admissions to take place beyond the deadline of September 30. All states have been directed to fill seats on the basis of the AIPMT 2015 merit list. Last year, 858 seats were reverted out of which 682 were from MBBS and 176 from BDS.
Dr. Arvind Goyal of Chandigarh, an academician says that although the Hon’ble Supreme Court has directed the states to fill the AIPMT seats reverted to them through the AIPMT merit list and also extended the last date for admissions to October 7, but the advantage of this may not be fully passed on to the AIPMT 2015 qualified students. Most of these states are holding the counselling in the only three working days, i.e. October 5 to 7 where the student who is interested needs to apply and be physically present for the counselling. Eventually the student practically will only be able to attend counselling of one state.
