Lucknow: In a shocker for the Lucknow based fake medical college, the Lucknow bench of the Allahabad High Court today gave orders to the management of Dr MC Saxena Medical College to pay Rs 25 lakh per student for “wrongly admitting” 150 of them in the MBBS 2015-16 course.
College gave admission to 150 students despite not being enrolled in the Medical Council of India and disobeyed the order of the Supreme Court.
Time span of two months has been given to the college to deposit the entire amount in respect of all the 150 students with the Director General of Medical Education, Uttar Pradesh.
The Director General, Medical Education, in turn, shall distribute the money among the students after due verification. The petitioners had sought a direction to allow them to appear in the first year MBBS examination for 2015-16.
“This court is constrained to observe that there has been a wilful disobedience by the respondent medical college of the orders passed by the apex court, which is nothing but an interference with the administration of justice. Disobedience of an order of a court, which is wilful, shakes the very foundation of the judicial system and can erode the faith and confidence reposed by the people in the judiciary, and undermines the rule of law,” the court said.
