Pvt Medical colleges not to collect fees more than Samiti decision
Mumbai, Aug 23 (UNI) In a landmark order, the Bombay High Court today restrained Private Medical Colleges in Maharashtra, who are the members of the Association of Management of Unaided Private Medical and Dental Colleges, from collecting academic fees for 2006-07 more than the fees fixed by Shikshan Shulak Smiti while claiming that they have acquired 'deemed university' status.
A division bench comprising Justices Dr S D Radhakrishnan and V M kanade in their order held that as the admissions in private colleges are closing today for the first round, we permit the students seeking admission to pay fees as indicated by the Samiti.
The court also said that this is however subject to both parents and students giving an undertaking in writing to pay the fees which will finally be determined to the colleges.
This undertaking shall be tendered while seeking admission and the copy of the undertaking shall also be furnished to the HC on August 28.
The court also made clear that this order will not apply to the students who have already taken admission.
The court passed the order in response to a petition filed by Parents Association of Medical Students, Maharashtra challenging the decision of the Association of Private Unaided Medical and Dental Colleges to collect fees more than decided by the Samiti. MORE UNI XR-ARM PM RL RAI2022
