Supreme Court bench led by Justice Navin Sinha hears a plea by a batch of doctors seeking a No Objection Certificate from State of Uttar Pradesh to pursue PG Diploma in AIIMS, Rishikesh
#SupremeCourt Image
Justice Sinha: Is it your case that the candidates did not sit as sponsored candidates?

AAG UP Garima Prashad: They were not sponsored, candidates. Now they want a NOC. They appeared for the written exam without permission.
Justice Sinha: they want to go to an institute of repute and not anywhere else and such a diploma will carry a weightage compared to the state institute

AAG: Its a policy decision of the state Lordship

SC: Where is the policy decision?
AAG: if we now permit study leaves during COVID time then there will be difficulties. Our policy decision is not even challenged here

Justice Sinha: give us a minute

Justice Sinha to Senior Adv Siddhartha Dave: We have been informed that you are not sponsored. you did not apply as a sponsored candidate and went on your own. State says they have taken a policy decision so that state doctors don't leave now so that services are available
Justice Sinha: It is better you withdraw this and challenge the said policy before the High Court.

Dave: last year in sea circumstances I was permitted

Justice Sinha: on March 17, 2020, we hadn't entered lockdown

Dave: UP does not state COVID is the reason
Senior Adv Dave: All are sponsored candidates of the policy. Even Uttarakhand policy came in January for candidates who had cleared the exam

#SupremeCourt: we permit you to withdraw with liberty to approach the High Court and challenge the policy
#supremecourt: Leave is sought to withdraw the writ petition to challenge the policy document. The writ petition is allowed to be withdrawn with the above liberty. we request the high court to consider the matter expeditiously.
