The non-implementation of reservation rules in the All India AYUSH Postgraduate Entrance Examination 2020 has been challenged in the Madhya Pradesh High Court.
The High Court on Monday passed an interim order: “The admissions to the course of MD (Ayurveda) / MS (Ayurveda) shall remain subject to the final outcome of the writ petition.” Under this, counseling has been made subject to the final decision of the petition under consideration.
The division bench of Chief Justice Mohammad Rafique and Justice Vijay Kumar Shukla issued notice to the Centre and the state government.
During the hearing, Advocate Rameshwar Singh Thakur and Advocate Vinayak Shah, appeared on behalf of petitioners Dr Ramraj Singh, Dr Nidhi Vishwakarma and Dr Shank Rai.
The counsel argued that the provision of reservation in the All India AYUSH Postgraduate Entrance Examinations 2020 has not been implemented as per rules. Provision has been made arbitrary without applying the reservation rules. This will harm applicants from other reserved classes, including other backward classes.
The High Court after considering the entire matter made the counseling of All India AYUSH Postgraduate Entrance Examination 2020 subject to the final decision of the petition under consideration.
