STATE TIMES NEWS JAMMU: Justice Rajesh Bindal of J&K High Court Jammu Wing on Friday dismissed a petition filed by Pardeep Kumari seeking quashment of notification No. 114-BOPEE of 2019 dated November 16, 2019, by virtue of which, the respondent has been admitted to MBBS course. While dismissing a petition the court observed that J&K Board of Professional Entrance Examinations (BOPEE), Jammu should have been more vigilant and proactive in its approach in intimating or notifying the prospective candidates to seek admission against the increased seats. It was observed that the notification of the Government of India increasing the seats of MBBS and BDS courses for various Medical Colleges is dated September 2, 2019. “The first notice, as is claimed to have been published, is dated September 11, 2019 and the second one is more than a month thereafter on October 21, 2019. The process of admission was taken to the last dates. The authorities were well within knowledge of the fact of lack of communication facilities in the then State of J&K at that time. No doubt the claim is that all possible modes were adopted but wherever possible, additional modes could have also been adopted. The text messages could have been flashed on mobile phones, wherever possible. If the service was not available in Kashmir, needful could have been done from Jammu. At least the candidates living in the Jammu region would have benefited from the additional source of information. The same would have shown fairness on the part of the BOPEE to provide opportunity to more and more candidates to participate in the process of admission against the increased number of seats. Had the process been initiated and completed early, instead of waiting for the last date of admission to come closer, even the studies of the candidates, who had to get admission, would not have suffered. The authorities involved in the process of admission have to be more sensitive”, the court observed.
