                 Heard    learned   counsel   for    the    parties

and perused the records.

        In view of the fact that the admissions
are going to be closed on 31.5.2012 as has been
pointed out by Mr. Amit Kumar, learned counsel
appearing for Medical Council of India, we can
quite see the urgency in the matter.                       It is
therefore, requested to the Writ Appeal Court
to   hear     the    matter     as   early     as    possible
immediately after re-opening.

        For that purpose, we request Hon'ble the
Chief Justice of the High Court to place the
matter before a Bench for expeditious hearing
and the concerned Bench is requested to decide
the appeal within three weeks.

        In the meanwhile, as the counselling is
in   continuance,        eligible    candidates       of    both
categories shall be allowed to participate in
the counselling.          The incentive marks may be
awarded to the carved out category as if the
notification        to    the    in-service         candidates
which shall be placed in a sealed cover before
the Division Bench hearing the matter.                     After
the matter is decided on merits, the High Court
may implement its order giving effect to the

        The    admissions       shall   take    place       only
after the order of the Division Bench of the
High Court hearing the writ appeal.                  The time
for giving admission is extended regard being
had to special features of the case.

        With    these      observations,       the    special

leave petitions stand disposed of.
