Following the orders of the Bombay High Court, private unaided, minority, medical and dental colleges across the Maharashtra will be closing their gates for the out-of-the-station students for over the next academic session 2016-17.
Finding the move detrimental a couple of people filed a petition against it, however the High Court refused to grant any interim relief, as mentioned a report.
The bench of judges Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice MS Sonak staunchly denied to stay the rules under the provision of Maharashtra Unaided Professional Educational Institutions (Regulation of Admissions and Fees) Act, 2015.
List of petitioners:
Name: Mahatma Gandhi Vidya Mandir Trust
- It is runs a dental at Nashik
- It challenges the norm which indirectly refrains students from other states to take admission in the state by asking a domicile certificate from them
Name: PA Inamdar
- PA Inamdar is a chairman of an education trust, which runs a minority unaided dental college in Pune
- It is evident that the number of applicants will plunge in this session as outstation students are barred from taking admission this year
- He appealed the government to relax the mandatory condition of domicile certificate
All in all, it may cause a downfall in the number of applicants this year.
