Maharashtra private medical colleges can’t conduct their own CET


The Supreme Court dismissed a petition filed by the association of Maharashtra private medical colleges to be allowed to conduct its own common entrance test (CET) for admission to medical and dental courses in the state.

Now, the students will be admitted to government as well as private colleges on the basis of a single entrance test conducted by the state CET cell.

Earlier on February 14, 2016 (Sunday), the Maharashtra Private PG CET (Post graduate common entrance test) for admissions to the PG medical and dental courses to be conducted by the Association of Managements of Unaided Private Medical and Dental Colleges (AMUPMDC) in Maharashtra state was cancelled.

The Maharashtra Unaided Private Professional Educational Institutions (Regulation of Admission and Fees) Act, 2015, was challenged by the Association of Managements of Unaided and Private Medical and Dental Colleges in the Bombay HC in August 2015.

The case finally reached the Supreme Court. Though the plea was meant only for the PG medical entrance test, the order is being seen as precedence for all other entrance tests that will be conducted by the state under the provisions of the new act.
