Six seats in government medical colleges and around 20 in private medical colleges will remain vacant throughout the year as the parents of aspirants Friday withdrew their plea to reopen admissions with the Supreme Court. The withdrawal came after they learnt that the judges were inclined to dismiss the petition.

The court was hearing an earlier public interest litigation by an organisation demanding that all vacant medical and dental seats across the country should be filled. The bench did not grant relief to the organisation and informed the parents, whose writ petition was to be heard next, that the petition would be dismissed.
