Justice CV Karthikeyan made the decision while hearing petitions filed by two persons — K Sevanthu Preethiga and VN Sandhya Priyadarshini — seeking grant of admission by providing the above relief. According to the petitioners, as per MCI regulations, 50 per cent of the seats in Post Graduate Diploma Courses shall be reserved for medical officers in the government services, who have served for at least three years in remote and difficult areas. Since the Board of Governors in supersession of Medical Council of India (MCI BoG) recently converted hundreds of PG diploma seats from medical colleges across the country to PG degree courses, only three diploma seats are available in Tamil Nadu and that too, only in the discipline of Diabetology, they pointed out.

Since it was brought to his notice that a similar plea is pending before Supreme Court, Justice Karthikeyan gave the above direction. He further told the Central and State government to file a counter in the next hearing on June 2.
