Hyderabad: The Telangana High Court on Tuesday found the Kaloji Narayana Rao University of Health Sciences guilty of striking down a provision that allowed children of Non-Resident Indians (NRIs) and Persons of Indian Origin (PIOs) admission to MBBS and BDS universities in the State.

TS Health, Medical and Family Welfare Department Government Order 114 dated July 5, 2017 allows admission of NRI and PIO students in MBBS and BDS courses. On October 10, the university issued a notification about the deletion of the category.

Due to the challenge, some NRI and PIO students approached the High Court. The students asked how the university can delete the provision when the state government has made it a legal obligation.

Aravelli Prabhakar Rao, counsel of the university, stated that the Center had issued a circular on September 22 stating that NRI students appearing for the All India Entrance Test are eligible for admission only in NRI seats or any additional seat, provided that Overseas Nationals India Card Holder (OCl) shall not be entitled to enter any seat reserved exclusively for Indian Nationals.

All India Tests include National Entrance Test, Common Entrance Test (Main), Common Entrance Test (Advanced) and others.

A division bench comprising Justice Abhinand Kumar Shavili and Justice Namavarapu Rajeshwara Rao said the university can issue a notification in violation of them as long as the statutory rules apply.

The court directed the university to allow the petitioners to participate in counseling for admission to MBBS and BDS courses if they were in the merit band. The court observed that the petitioners had studied in Telangana for more than four years and had certain rights in terms of statutory rules.
