The Chennai High Court had cancelled the state government plan to reserve 85% of the seats for admission to medical courses to the students who studied under the Tamil Nadu state syllabus. After this, the state government of Tamil Nadu has decided to appeal to the Supreme Court against this order.
The state health minister, Mr Vijayabhaskar had a session with the press reporters and explained that the arrangements for commencing the counselling for students for admission to medical courses were completed. Everything was ready to commence the counselling sessions. However, today (Friday, 14th July), the Chennai High Court has cancelled the government plan to reserve 85% of the seats for the students who had studied under the state government syllabus.
The main intention of the state government for the 85% reservation was concerning the welfare of the students and their future.
So, the government has taken a decision to consult with legal experts and proceed with an appeal to the Supreme Court.
Once the draft petition is ready, the appeal will be made first to the bench of additional judges in the High Court itself. The decision of the government will be beneficial to everyone concerned. This decision has been taken as per the advice of the Chief Minister.
