A bench of Justices MR Shah and Aniruddha Bose stated that the quality of medical education cannot be compromised because it will damage public health.

The government’s and the Medical Counselling Committee’s decision not to allow special stray rounds is in the best interests of medical education and public health, according to the Supreme Court.
