HYDERABAD: Justice Vilas Afzalpurkar of the AP high court on Monday declared that he was concurring with Justice V Eswaraiah on the issue of not staying the ongoing MBBS admissions in private medical colleges under the management quota.
The matter was referred to the third judge after the two judges of a division bench differed on granting the stay. The bench comprising Justice V Eswaraiah and Justice N Ravishankar heard a batch of cases against private colleges for not considering merit while admitting students under the management quota.
The bench gave a split verdict. While Eswaraiah declined to stay the ongoing process of admissions, Justice Ravishankar ruled that admissions under this quota must take place in a transparent manner with due weightage to merit. He stayed the process of admission saying that it was for the state to bring the necessary mechanism for ensuring the same. The matter was then referred to acting Chief Justice P C Ghosh for allotting it to a third judge so that the view of the majority could be ascertained.
The advocates who appeared for the managements requested the bench headed by the acting Chief Justice to expedite the process of referring the matter to a third judge. All these cases were then directed to Justice Vilas Afzalpurkar, who after hearing the arguments on the issue of granting stay, expressed his wish to concur with the reasoning given by Justice Eswaraiah.
He however, directed the NTR varsity to go through the selection list submitted by the managements in view of the existing rules. The full copy of the judgment was not available immediately. With Justice Vilas Afzalpurkar's reply, the refusal to grant the stay is in force.
