Supreme Court Decides to Hear Pleas of Ukraine-Returned MBBS Students on November 1

The Supreme Court will hear the petitions of MBBS students who have returned from Ukraine on November 1, 2022. These students have sought permission to continue their medical education in India.

The students are represented by Senior Advocate Rajiv Dutta who pressed before the bench of Justice Hemant Gupta to convene a meeting to discuss the issue. Dutta added that they are waiting for some positive outcome and needed the help of the bench to deal with the crisis.

Centre has also introduced the “Academic Mobility Programme” that would provide almost 20,000 Ukraine-returned medical students with a scope to continue their studies in alternative universities of other compatible countries.

The bench appreciated the Centre for this move and was asked to develop a portal that would provide information on the number of seats and fee structure of these universities. They also noted that India cannot accommodate all the 20,000 students and they will have to join universities outside the country.

Giving one liaisoning officer all the duties to communicate with students and parents is not a feasible option. Therefore, it is necessary to make clear the name of the colleges that are available, seats and fees.

The Health Ministry responded by stating that students with “poor merit” could not be allowed to continue their medical studies in India
