Here is some important piece of news for Dentists seeking admission to MDS courses in Medical colleges of Haryana for 2017-18 session.
As per the recent news, the Haryana Government has denied any reservation in admission to MDS programs in Medical Colleges of Haryana this year.
Consequently, candidates belonging to Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes and Backward class will not get any reservation in the process of admission to MDS program in colleges of Haryana for the 2017-18 Session.
The DMER had sent a proposal to Haryana Government in November 2016 for issuing a notification for providing reservation of seats for admission to MDS courses for the 2017-18 Session.
The DMER in its proposal gave reference to a Supreme Court Order dated December 2nd 2009 wherein the Court left it for the Government to reconsider its decision in future years though refused to issue mandamus against the Government’s decision of not providing Reservation in MDS courses.
The DMER also stated in its proposal that the Reservation Policy for admission to PG courses was being followed in Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Rajasthan and PGIMER, Chandigarh.
In response, Haryana State Government rejected the DMER proposal at least for the academic session 2017-18.
Sources revealed that the Government decided to reject the DMER proposal since not much time was left for the 2017-18 academic session.
Sources also stated that the Government will examine the issue in detail and will obtain information of other states before putting up the relevant file for orders in the next academic year.
Sources revealed that the decision was taken on the opinion given by Baldev Raj Mahajan, Advocate General who stated that the issue requires a detailed examination since the seats in MDS courses are limited and no reservation has been provided in the state since 1971.
The decision of not providing reservation for admission in PG courses for the session 2017-18 was taken in a meeting was taken recently at the Chief Minister’s residence that was attended by Dhanpat Singh, Additional Chief Secretary (DMER) and Baldev Raj Mahajan, AG among others.
