Ramadoss signs AIIMS degree certificates

September 04, 2007 10:58 IST

Union Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss has signed the degree certificates of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences graduates following a Delhi high court directive.

"The minister has signed all the degree certificates and it will be distributed to students complying with the court orders," ministry sources said on Tuesday.

The Delhi high court on Monday directed Ramadoss, involved in a turf war with AIIMS Director P Venugopal, to sign on the certificates within 24 hours.

AIIMS resident doctors last week went on a three-day strike on the issue.

Ramadoss had refused to sign the documents saying they bore the signature of the Registrar whose appointment was illegal.

The court also held that the degrees bearing the signature of the registrar, whose appointment has been the bone of contention between AIIMS Director P Venugopal and

Ramadoss, shall be deemed to be valid.
