Colour blind students can now study medicine
October 11, 2017
A committee of medical experts has ruled that students who are colour blind should be allowed to study medicine.
The decision comes two years after two students who were prevented from taking admission in medicine because they are colour blind approached the Supreme Court.
Outside India, students with abnormal colour vision are not barred from studying medicine.
Admission not allowed even after clearing medical entrance examinationThe two students had cleared the medical entrance examination in 2015 but they were not allowed to take admission in Tripura medical college. The Tripura high court had turned down their plea, after which they approached the Supreme Court in September 2015.
With the new report, it is hoped that there will no longer be any question on students with colour blindness being eligible to study medicine.
