The Supreme Court on Friday will hear a plea challenging the denial of the National Medical Commission (NMC) to grant a Letter of Permission for establishment of the Paritran Medical College and Hospital in Deoghar, Jharkhand for an intake of 1st batch of 150 MBBS seats for their academic session 2020-21.
A three-judge bench of Justice L. Nageswara Rao, Justice Hemant Gupta and Justice Ajay Rastogi will hear the matter.
At the outset, the petitioner submitted that their medical college was taken over and designated as dedicated Covid-19 hospital by the State Government and the medical staff was deputed to different hospitals till 11.10.2020. But the faculty, residents and staff members who have admittedly been appointed by the petitioner medical college were deputed on Covid-19 duty. So, the issue arises when the faculties and residents were not included/counted during the compliance verification due to being on the Covid-19 duty, provided in the compliance verification report.
It stated that the Emergency surgical procedures were being done in Maa Lalita Super speciality Hospital & Trauma Centre, being one of the associated hospitals run by the Paritran Trust, and no surgical procedures were being in the Petitioner Medical College and Hospital due to hospital being declared as Covid-19 hospital.
Further, the petitioner submitted that they require number of teaching faculties under the Minimum standard Requirements for the medical College for Admissions annually Regulations, 1999 for the grant of Letter of Permission for intake of its 1st batch of MBBS 2020-21 and the faculties were either deputed to COVID-19 duty or in quarantine period.PDF Embedder requires a url attribute
