Hyderabad, July 17 (TNN): The High Court on Friday posted a writ petition filed seeking a direction to declare that it was illegal to give weightage to Inter marks in Eamcet to August 3.
Mr G Kushal Prasad, a resident of Kurnool and Ms B Bhargavi, from Kadapa and Mr B Harish, from Anantapur who were aspiring for medical courses approached the High Court challenging the order issued by the government to give weightage marks to Eamcet candidates.
The petitioners contended that introducing a new system of weightage has totally changed the eligibility criteria for admission into MBBS and was not justified.
They argued that the new system only benefited corporate colleges. The High Court will hear the writ on August 3.
But the High Court has gave permission to the state government to conduct counseling as usual. And it told the government it should obey the orders of court after counseling.
The government also agreed to implement the court’s decision in this regard.
