Calcutta HC: ‘No Gross Illegality’, upholds West Bengal Medical Council elections

Kolkata: A petition by Overseas Citizen of India (OCI) challenging the election of the West Bengal Medical Council (WBMC), specifically focusing on the election of the President and Vice President was dismissed by a single-judge bench of Justice Sabyasachi Bhattacharyya. Though the bench acknowledged a minor technical irregularity in the election process the court did not find gross illegality in the election process significant enough to warrant intervention. The Court emphasized that challenging the election on this basis would disrupt the WBMC’s decisions and activities for over a year, affecting numerous individuals. The Court found no gross illegality in the election process related to the nomination and election of office bearers, including the nomination of the President and election of the Vice President.
