A Bench, comprising Justice Ruma Pal and Justice P. Venkatarama Reddi, declined the request from these colleges for extending the deadline stating that if the deadline were relaxed in one case, all the colleges across the country would rush to the court seeking the same relief.
The Bench said: "They (colleges) persist in making ad hoc arrangements. If they missed the bus this time let it be a miss. Let the mistake be rectified next year."
The Bench did not agree with the plea that relaxation should be made only for this year.
It said the "this year" syndrome would be repeated every year and wondered how aspiring doctors would be able to complete their courses of study for the first year if the admissions were to be allowed as late as end-October.
The Bench said, "We want the best doctors. We cannot reopen the entire admission process now and put on hold the academic year just because the colleges did not fulfil the criteria in time."
