However, the decision was yet to be implemented, the letter said.

When faculty members of the forum raised the matter before the administration, the authorities pleaded helplesness saying that the minutes of the meeting has not been received by them, the letter said.

The UPA government and the Health Ministry are equally "culpable" in this matter, the letter added.
