    The Gujarat University has decided that they would study the high court judgment on PG dental admission before admitting the students.The Gujarat high court on Thursday struck down the settlement be-tween the state government and Consortium of Self-Financed Colleges.

    With this, the scheme of the admission to the PG dental courses should be governed in the ratio of 75:25 which means 15 per cent NRI seats remain intact.

    A division bench of Justice P B Majmudar and Justice Mohinder Pal held that the government’s new scheme of 50:50 ratio in admission on merit and in management quota excluding 15 per cent NRI seats is violation of the provisions of the Gujarat Professional Medical Educational Colleges or Institutions (Regulations of Admission and Fixation of Fees) Act, 2007.

    Gujarat University (GU) acting vice-chancellor, Dr Mukul Shah said “the Gujarat high court order on PG dental admissions will be studied carefully after which any decision will be taken. Once the order is studied, GU will declare the schedule of admissions.”

    GU officials said that the admission process will have to be carried out afresh after the court order. Barring 18-odd seats, admissions will have to be carried out on other seats which are mostly in the self financed colleges. There are 95 post-graduate dental seats in colleges all over the state.
