HC: This session, students who passed Class 11 from outside Punjab are eligible

CHANDIGARH: The Punjab and Haryana High Court has struck down the provision that considered only students clearing classes 11 and 12 from schools in Punjab for admission to MBBS and BDS courses under the state quota.

The provision (Class 11 from Punjab) was incorporated by Baba Farid University of Health Sciences (BFUHS) from this session and as many as 85% seats to the said courses were reserved under the state quota.

The high court bench of justice GS Sandhawalia struck down the provision stating that it would affect students adversely as the provision had retrospective effect.

The court also took note of an earlier judgment, wherein state had set the condition of ‘passing classes 11 and 12 from state schools’ for admissions to the medical colleges in Punjab 2019-20 onwards.

The order came on the petition of a Bathinda resident, Simran Dhillon, who was born and brought up in Punjab, but had to shift for a year to Dehradun and cleared her Class 11 from there.

The petitioner had cleared Class 12 from a school in Punjab. She had argued that in 2014, when she took admission in Class 11 at Dehradun school, there was no such eligibility condition in Punjab for admission to the MBBS course. The girl fulfilled all other eligibility conditions.
