Fix fee for MBBS courses at deemed universities by October: High Court Order

Chennai: The Madras High Court ordered fixing of fees for various medical and dental courses in self-financing, deemed universities positively by October end after hearing all stakeholders.

A bench of Chief Justice Indira Banerjee and Justice P T Asha gave the direction after the University Grant Commission informed it that a 11-member committee has already been set up for the purpose.

Disposing of a bunch of petitions seeking constitution of a fee determination committee, the bench said all stake holders of fee fixation process should be given a hearing before finalising the report by the panel.

The UGC informed the bench that an 11-member fee fixation committee has been set up by the Human Resource Development Ministry for regulating the fees charged by deemed universities for medical courses.

Submitting a copy of a letter on the constitution of the committee, the counsel for UGC sought at least four months time to file the report as the stakeholders have to be heard.

The high court and the supreme court had ordered the UGC to constitute a committee to go into the fee determination.

In an interim order on June 8, the bench had directed the deemed universities to collect a fees of Rs 13 lakh per annum for UG medical courses, pending determination of the fee by the committee.

    Suprime court has to give a order to fix the fees in all MD\\MS\\PG Dip irrespective of the pre cilinical/paraclinical/or/clinical subjects of the deemed university and the private medical college –a uniform and resonable fees structure for the course,otherwise the purpose of NEET PG is useless and vage. Hope suprime court will give a verdict on it.

  2. The interim order of the High Court to collect a fee of Rs.13L per annum for UG medical courses has not been followed . The Deemed Universities in Tamil Nadu are still quoting a very high fee of 21Lakh and above . It is disappointing to see that the MCC has also not followed the High Court Order and allowed the Deemed Universities to charge such exorbitant fees . Is the High Court aware that its Interim Order has not been honored ? Why are no steps taken by the honorable Court to correct this ?

  3. looks like our legal systems, UGC, MCI, HRD Ministry are dillydallying on this matter whether MBBS or MD/MS. Big Money play is happening behind the scene by the mafias. Madam Kiran bedi the governor of Pondy have pointed out this matter when VBR menon brought this cause to the high court. unreasonably stretching this matter, more it get stretchered it is good for the money making mafia. MD-MS admission over and extracted huge money from people in the form of registration fees, tuition fees to avoid blocking, tuition fees to deemed universities in the range of 30-50 lacs per annum, during stray round counselling vacant seats selling like hot cake for capitation fees leading to a total of 2.5 crores for the course etc etc. Money money, money huge and huge money…
