The Government had asked the Tamil Nadu Dr.MGR Medical University to inquire into the college's status and a report was submitted, a university official said recently.
The Government will study the report and decide on the action to be taken against the college, a senior medical education official said.
The college was started early this month as part of the Bharat Institute of Education and Research, deemed university, without the knowledge of State officials. College authorities said that as it came under a deemed university, State consent was not needed.
But officials argue that as per the observations of the Medical Council of India's executive committee, the deemed university status was granted only with regard to the Balaji Dental College.
The committee said 0that although the University Grants Commission conveyed its `no objection' to the Bharat Institute for setting up the medical college, the Centre had granted the deemed university status only for the dental college.
Any modification could be done only by the Centre and not by the UGC, it added.
It also said that as per the legal opinion of the council's advocate, any application by the Lakshmi Ammal Education Trust, which runs the Bharat Institute, for recognition to the college would not be complete unless it got a consent of affiliation from an `appropriate university'.
