No sports quota for MBBS this Academic year
The Hyderabad High Court on Wednesday set aside the sports quota in MBBS and BDS for the academic year (2018.19) and directed the Telangana state government to conduct a study to find out all major sports played in the state and Issue a fresh order on reservations. It also directed the state to remove all sports that are not popular in order to avoid non-players making the most profit out of the whole game.
A division bench comprising Justice V. Ramasubramanian and Justice J. Uma Devi, while setting aside the GO Ms no. 7 issued on June 21 providing sports quota for under-graduate medical courses, said that if the government issues an order retaining sports quota with suitable modifications, the same will be effective from the next academic year.
