On Thursday, the Supreme Court refused to consider a plea against the reservation policy implemented by the first Daman medical school that gives quotas to students who studied from level 8 to 12 in Daman.
A bench of judges Indira Banerjee and Hemant Gupta, although they refused to consider the guilty plea, said that normally it cannot be interfered with the political decision.
Student petitioner Muskan Samir Modasia was seeking admission to the Namo Medical Education and Research Institute, Silvassa, and said she had studied at Daman from levels 1 to 6.
The petitioner did not qualify for the domicile criteria because she studied from standard 1 to 6 and not from standard 8 to 12 in Daman.
The petitioner described the policy as “discriminatory.”
During the hearing, Judge Banerjee said it is a political decision in which both board examinations must be approved by Daman. You only studied in the elementary classes and then moved, the high court bench said.
It is a reverse proposition what he is arguing, the bank said, rejecting the plea.
The petitioner claimed to have obtained priority in admission to the MBBS course in any of the 58 places reserved for Daman & Diu candidates at the Namo Medical Research and Education Institute, Silvassa.
The Bombay High Court had also previously rejected the petition.
