The Khasi Students’ Union (KSU) today said that ten candidates selected for MBBS study in the open category and waiting list had submitted documents which are incomplete and dubious in nature and not as per the criteria set by the Directorate of Health Services (DHS).
In its memorandum submitted to Health Minister Ampareen Lyngdoh, the KSU raised objections to the MBBS quota list of 2023 released recently by the DHS.
According to the KSU, one of the conditions issued by the DHS is that a copy of the Permanent Residential Certificate (PRC) is mandatory for all applicants.
“However many selected candidates from the open category did not submit the necessary document,” the KSU alleged.
It also stated that the ten candidates did not submit relevant documents as per the directives of the DHS. “Also absence of PRC as one of the submitted documents invites disqualification of such candidates,” the KSU said.
Stating that birth certificates which are devoid of a serial number and a court order should attract a thorough investigation as to how such documents are issued by the concerned authorities, the KSU demanded immediate disqualification of the ten candidates from the open category list and in their place, genuine and bona fide candidates should be included.
Briefing about the credentials of the ten candidates, the KSU said that Mehbub Hassan did not submit the PRC but instead a Provisional PRC issued on June 7, 2023 in Dadenggre and valid for only 12 months was submitted.
“The candidate was born in the year 2001 and birth certificate was issued in 2019 which lacks a proper serial number and a court order to verify the same,” it added.
