The fate of 300 students of Subharati Medical College hangs in balance as the state government is yet to shift the students of the college which has been closed down to different medical colleges of the state.
The Supreme Court (SC) in December last year had ordered that the students of the first and second MBBS batches of the college should be shifted to the different medical colleges of the state. Acting on the order, the state government had set up a committee to suggest on how the students would be adjusted. The committee in its report had suggested that 25 students each of both the batches should be shifted to three government medical colleges based in Dehradun, Srinagar and Haldwani. For the students admitted on payment seats, it was suggested by the committee that 37 and 38 students would be shifted to SGRR Medical College and Swami Ram Medical College Jollygrant respectively.
However even after two months of submission of the report of committee, the state government is yet to give its nod for shifting the students. The students are also annoyed on the order of the Medical Council of India (MCI) to the effect that the students of the first batch should write their examination again as Subharati College was not approved by it.
