High Court demands admission norms for Dental College

Shimla: Taking suo-moto action on the notification issued by the state government, whereby the government permits candidates with mere pass marks of 33 percent to be admitted to dental colleges, the Himachal High Court today directed the principal secretary (Health), to explain his stand on this issue on or before August 20.

A division bench observed there had to be some minimum standards for a person aspiring to become a doctor, engineer or dentist. The government had issued a notification dated August 24, 2006, whereby the state had permitted candidates who had qualified +2 examination from any state to be admitted to dental colleges without even ensuring that they fulfilled the basic eligibility criteria of 50 per cent marks
