JNIMS authority puts in more punch to get Govt nod to 5 pc reservation

IMPHAL, Jul 12: Authority of Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences (JNIMS) has been reportedly trying to get the green signal from the State Health Department in connection with its effort of reserving five MBBS seats out of 100 in the institute for the wards/children of its faculty.

According to a reliable source, the frantic effort of the JNIMS authority to get the convey order from the Health Department has started anew after realising that  reservation of seats for the wards/children of its  faculty staff would not be possible without such an approval.

It may be noted here that based on an intimation letter sent from the Secretariat of Health Department on April 6 last, the Director of JNIMS communicated to the Director of Health Services, Government of Manipur in connection with finalisation of reserving 5 MBBS seats out of 100 in the institute for the wards/children of its faculty.

However, after realising that the intimation letter of the Secretariat of Health Department does not have any convey order of the Government, the JNIMS authority has started making efforts to get the convey order of the Government. The source said that reservation of 5 MBBS seats for the faculty staff of JNIMS, which is under a governing body headed by the Chief Minister as the chairman, is now in the hands of Secretariat Health Department.

The issue can be settled once and for all, if the Secretariat of the Health Department refuses to accept reservation of seats for the wards/children of faculty staff of JNIMS in consideration of the fact that reservation of seats for the wards/children of faculty staff in any State run medical colleges is not practised, apart from other likely complications in future.

Sources in the Directorate of Health Services said that a letter would soon be written to JNIMS authority to make it clear that the intimation letter sent from the side of the Secretariat Health Department on April 6 did not have the convey order of the Government.

In accordance with the guidelines of the Medical Council of India (MCI), the admission process for MBBS in JNIMS, which has 100 seats, is to be completed by July 31.
