New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Thursday permitted the Karnataka Private Medical Colleges Association and Karnataka Religious and Linguistic Minority Private Colleges Association to proceed with publication of counselling results for admission to postgraduate medical, dental and diploma courses in unaided self-financing colleges.

A Bench of Justice K.G. Balakrishnan and Justice P.P. Naoleklar, while passing the order, said the two associations should publish the list of selected candidates in their website and newspapers.

The Bench, however, said that aggrieved candidates could make complaints before the committee overseeing the admissions and the committee should pass orders on such complaints by May 3 and approve the list for giving effect to admission.

The Bench also allowed the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences to go ahead with its counselling process. The Bench directed the matter to be listed for further hearing on May 9. The Bench passed the order on applications filed by the two associations seeking permission to announce the results.
