CBI probe into MP medical admission malpractice
The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) finds itself mired in another controversy with the Madhya Pradesh medical admissions authority being accused of malpractices in the admission process. Ashish Chaturvedi, a medical aspirant, has alleged in a complaint with the CBI that candidates with lower ranks have been admitted to the State’s medical colleges overtaking candidates with higher ranks. Further, the complaint also states that the authority has admitted candidates above the intake capacity of undergraduate medical seats.

“Candidates who have secured higher percentile and marks, in NEET and other qualifying examinations failed to get admission in not only Government but even in private colleges, however, those with lower marks got admission,” Chaturvedi said in the written letter to CBI.
The complainant has also shared the names of some officials of Directorate of Medical Education (DME) who were involved in the alleged admission’s malpractice. Among the names shared is the Director of Medical Education (M.P) Dr. G.S.Patel and Dr(Mrs). Sashi Gandhi. According to Chaturvedi, they deliberately ensure that malpractices take place resulting in deserving candidates being deprived of their seats.
CBI has accepted the case, however, they are yet to announce an action to be taken against the complaint.
