This petition had 344 supporters
The Fathima Institute of Medical Sciences, Kadapa issued notification in the year 2015 for admission to MBBS course. We, 100 nos., were admitted to 1st year of MBBS course on the basis of our Merit and Counseling held on 30.09.2015. The NTR University of Health Sciences, Vijayawada accorded its approval for our admissions made by the said college.
It is pertinent to mention that the Fathima Institute of Medical Sciences, Kadapa is a Muslim Minority Medical College and out of the 100 students admitted in MBBS course most of the students are girls representing minority community.
The class work for the first year M.B.B.S. course was commenced from 1.10.2015 followed by practical classes and internal examinations and notification for the final examination for 1st Year M.B.B.S. was also issued and all of us were getting ready to the examination.
Suddenly, it was learnt from the news paper dated 23.04.2016 that the Honorable High Court for the State of Andhra Pradesh And Telangana have passed orders cancelling the admission made by the Fathima Institute of Medical Sciences, Kadapa for the Academic Year 2015-16 and asked the college authorities to refund fees to us. By that time, 07 months passed to commencement of the Course.
On enquiry, we came to know that the College Management has made admission to MBBS course during 2015-16 relying upon the interim orders from Hon’ble High court on 20.01.2016 permitting the college to proceed with provisional admissions subject to the outcome of the writ petition pending in the court.
In this context, it is pertinent to submit that the college management did not reveal that our admissions are provisional at the time of admissions and that the admission are subject to outcome of pending WP before Hon’ble High Court. Further, the Hon’ble Court had put the life of the students on stake by giving an interim order in favour of the management to make admissions, when the students are not the party to the petition, which is not reasonable.
Later, the Hon’ble Court having found that the college has suppressed the fact of filing two petitions on the same cause in DELHI HIGH COURT as well as in HIGH COURT OF ANDHRA PRADESH AND TELANGANA simultaneously and on that reason dismissed the pending Writ Petition on the grounds of suppression of facts without going into the merits and directing the management to return the fees to the students. The Hon’ble High Court while dismissing the petition did not consider the fact that the life of 100 students will be on stake who were admitted to the college due to its interim order and thought that mere returning of fees will suffice to damage caused due to the cancellation of admission.
It is the college management who cheated the court but not the students. And also that the management misrepresented the students by taking signatures of the students on the papers stating that they are fighting for the students and filed the petition before Hon’ble Court on behalf of the students stating that the students have joined the course having the knowingly of an interim order.
Basing on the directions of Hon’ble High Court, the NTR University of Medical sciences has cancelled our admissions on 09.07.2016.
Thus, we approached Honorable High court of AP & TELANGANA and prayed to render justice stating that we are not a party in court case wherein the Hon’ble Court passed Orders of cancelling Admission. But the Hon’ble High Court had taken serious note of the suppression made by the College in the Court Proceeding and dismissed our Plea. Subsequently, we filed SLP before Supreme Court, but all the SLPs were dismissed upholding the High Court decision and without considering the fate of the 100 students who have not done an iota of mistake in taking admissions in college or indulged in the suppression made by the college management. For the mistake done by the management, the 100 students were penalized.
In view of the above, we have lost our academic education for 02 years and career which thrown our lives to doldrums leaving us in mental agony and trauma. The college is running with five batches before 2015-16 and theraafter.
We request you to stand with us and extend your support so that the United Nations Organisation, Intellectuals and NGOs will stress upon the State Government and the Central Government to relocate all the 100 students in Government Medical Colleges of Andhra Pradesh for MBBS course, to render justice at the earliest.
Since the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) is a major funder of education, its support would have a dramatic impact on the lives of minority girls. The time to act is now.
