The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES NATION -

Dehradun: In a first of its kind or­der, the Supreme Court on Thurs­day asked the Ut­tarak­hand gov­ern­ment to take over the land, build­ing and as­sets of pri­vately owned Shridev Suman Sub­harti Med­i­cal Col­lege within 24 hours and run it as a gov­ern­ment med­i­cal col­lege.

The or­der was passed af­ter a writ pe­ti­tion was filed by 74 med­i­cal stu­dents (all NEET pas­souts) who com­plained that Sub­harti Trust had de­faulted in its re­spon­si­bil­i­ties, in­clud­ing ob­tain­ing nec­es­sary af­fil­i­a­tion and per­mis­sions from the Med­i­cal Coun­cil of In­dia.

Talk­ing to TOI, deputy ad­vo­cate gen­eral of Ut­tarak­hand, Jatin­der Ku­mar Sethi, said the med­i­cal col­lege, which has un­til now ad­mit­ted two batches of MBBS stu­dents, had ob­tained a no-ob­jec­tion cer­tifi­cate (NOC) from Garhwal Univer­sity but had still not re­ceived an af­fil­i­a­tion.
