In a relief to 180 doctors, the Karnataka High Court on Tuesday passed an interim direction to the state restraining it from compelling these doctors from registering online for the Compulsory Rural Service under provisions of the Karnataka Compulsory Training Service By Candidates Completed Medical Courses Act, 2012

A single judge bench of Justice Sachin Shankar Magadum while hearing a batch of petitions said "Since the learned Additional Advocate General is yet to conclude his arguments and this Court has to hear the counsel for the petitioners by way of reply, the first respondent-State is directed not to precipitate the matter pursuant to the impugned notification as per Annexure- A for a period of two weeks only in respect of the petitioners who are before this Court":.

The court clarified that "It is needless to state that this interim arrangement is confined to the petitioners who are before this Court. However, the respondent-State is at liberty to proceed with implementation of the Notification as per Annexure- A.

One of the petitions is filed by Dr Prathana N through advocates Manik B T of Thiru and Thiru Chambers. In the petition it is contended that in the case of Bushree Antal Aleem the validity of the said law came to be upheld. However, it was declared that it would be applicable prospectively and not retrospectively to students who secured admission after 24.07.2015.

Further, in 2019, the National Medical Commission Act has come into force and thus there is a paradigm shift that took place in medical education and the state governments have lost their rights in regulating medical college admissions. It is submitted that the notification dated June 6, stems out of the compulsory act which is a non-est law in light of the NMC Act.

The hearing on the petitions will continue on Wednesday.
