The Supreme Court on Monday deferred the hearing on the case relating to denial of the MBBS students from Meghalaya in medical colleges in Assam to September 15.

The matter was earlier listed for hearing in the Supreme Court on Monday.

When contacted, Health and Family Welfare department secretary, Himalaya Shangpliang informed that the matter could not be taken up for hearing today.

“The hearing on the matter has been deferred to September 15,” Shangpliang informed.

Earlier, the Meghalaya Government  had also prayed for inclusion of Medical Council of India (MCI) as a party in the matter.

It may be mentioned that 4 seats each for Meghalaya students  were allotted each year in Guwahati medical college and Hospital, Assam Medical College and Hospital besides  2  seats in Silchar Medical College and Hospital.

It may be recalled that Health and Family Welfare Minister, Roshan Warjri had informed that Meghalaya Government pays 10  lakh  for each  student of Meghalaya who undergo medical studies in  the institutions.

“The whole problem cropped up  because no communication was received from Assam Government  regarding their new rule,” she told reporters.
