Supreme Court nod for MBBS seats to colour-blind

Mon, 09/25/2017 - 11:02 -- geeta.nair

New Delhi: The Supreme Court has opened the doors for colour-blind students to pursue MBBS course by ordering the admission of two such candidates, who have scored high marks in the entrance examination, for the next academic year.
Terming its action as “transcendental importance of justice”, the apex court said that peculiar facts and circumstances of the case required it to invoke special powers under Article 142 of the Constitution.

The two students had secured high marks in the entrance examination held by the Tripura government in 2015. Various colleges and Medical Council of India were arbitrarily denying admissions to candidates suffering from colour vision deficiency, popularly called colour blindness.
