A bench of Justice Arun Mishra and Justice U.U. Lalit said the condition in the PGET-2018 official notification was invalid and directed it, the Directorate of Medical Education and the Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) to modify and amend the information bulletin for the examination and re-publish the calendar of events. The mock allotment result was expected on 30 March and the first round allotment result was expected today (5 April).
The notification had also received strong criticism from the Medical Council of India (MCI), the medical education regulator. The MCI told the apex court, on 15 March that PG medical seats in government colleges are limited and should not be subjected to such conditions.
