The court has directed 11 colleges coming under the association to complete admission process before August 31. State Health Minister Adoor Prakash said that he would hold discussions with the representatives of the association in the light of the apex court.

He told reporters at Pathanamthitta that the meeting to be held in the presence of Chief Minister Oommen Chandy will try to solve the issues affecting the admission. The government council had informed the apex court that the government had no objection in admitting students from the rank list prepared by the association on the basis of the entrance test they conducted on July 14.

The high court had directed the colleges to admit students from the government rank list prepared on the basis of entrance test conducted by the Commissioner for Entrance Examinations in April this year. The high court verdict came on a petition filed by P. Amina Nahna, a candidate on the government rank list. The court had termed the management entrance test illegal as it was held without the supervision of the Admission Supervisory Committee headed by P.A Mohammed.
