The Supreme Court on Thursday granted an extension to the state government for conducting admissions to government and private medical colleges till Friday. The Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER) had sought more time from the Supreme Court after the admissions concluded on September 30. However, with delay in the hearing, the DMER has to make do with only a day’s extension.
The extension may not help candidates from outside Mumbai as the DMER will hold central admissions at JJ Hospital on Friday. “Candidates from across the state will have to come to JJ Hospital and confirm their admissions by Friday evening,” said Pravin Shinghare, Director, DMER. He said the Supreme Court decision came late and a notification has been uploaded on the website.
According to Shinghare, around 25 seats were vacant in medical and 35 in dental courses.”There are around 60 vacant seats as two new colleges were approved very late in the admission process,” said Pravin Shinghare, director of DMER. A total of 350 seats in the two colleges — in Dhule and Talegaon — were added on September 29. The DMER had announced a merit list and had allowed spot admissions after 2pm.
