The Madras High Court has stayed notifications of the Medical Council of India (MCI) prescribing a national-level eligibility-cum-entrance test for admission to MBBS course and post-graduate medical courses, in so far as a medical college in Tiruvallur district is concerned.

Justice P. Jyothimani passed the order on a writ petition by DD Medical College and DD Hospital, represented by its Chairman, T.D. Naidu, Kunnavalam, Tiruvallur district. The petitioner said the notifications had been issued without the Union government's mandatory prior approval.
