While considering a plea by an MBBS aspirant with locomotor disability, who had been deemed unfit for studying medical education, the Bombay High Court recently ordered his medical re-examination and directed the All India Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AIIPMR) to conduct the same.
The concerned student does not have five fingers to his right hand even though his left hand is normal and without any disability. However, he had been disqualified for MBBS admission by the Medical Board of National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET).
His disability is calculated at 60% by Grant Government Medical College and Sir J.J. Group of Hospitals, which is the MCI Medical Board comprising of three senior Professors from the Departments of Orthopedic, Medicine and Neurology. They have issued a certificate of disability for NEET admission dated 04.10.2022 declaring the present petitioner Ajinkya Ankush Budle not eligible to pursue the medical course as per the NMC norms.
