Five medical universities vice-chancellors have moved to the Sindh High Court (SHC) seeking an order of the court to continue with MBBS and BDS admission tests across the province.
Due to ongoing conflict between the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) and Pakistan Medical Commission (PMC), the admission test for the public and private colleges are in the grey zone.
According to the report, it has been requested by the Dow University of Health Sciences, the Jinnah Sindh Medical University Karachi, the Peoples University Nawabshah, the Liaquat University of Health and Medical Sciences Jamshoro, and the Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto University Larkana VCs to ban PMC. PMC was the body that replaced PMDC.
Peoples University VC Dr. Gulshan Ali Memon said that they have requested the court to permit them to continue with admissions at public and private medical colleges in Sindh.
According to Dr. Ghulam Memon, the provincial admission committee has decided to have an entry test on Sunday.
“The honorable court will decide about this matter. I can’t say any further on this matter. The PMC’s board had yet to be formed which would formulate regulations for the admissions at the medical and dental colleges but in violation of its own act, the PMC announced admission regulations for the year 2020-2021.”
