Pvt medical colleges to charge fees as per committee's decision: HC
Mumbai, Aug 31 (UNI) The Bombay High Court today held that all private unaided medical and dental colleges would charge fees only as fixed by the ''Shikshan Shulka Samiti' subject to final orders.
A division bench comprising justices Dr S Radhakrishnan and V M Kanade also held that the five colleges that had claimed a ''deemed university'' status would continue to function in affiliation with the Maharashtra University of Health Sciences until further orders as they could not produce copy of the order duly published in the government gazette stating they have attained the said status.
The five colleges claiming the ''deemed university'' status are Mahatma Gandhi Mission Medical College (Mumbai), MGM College (Aurangabad), D Y Patil Dental College (Pimpri), D Y Patil College of Physiotherapy (Pimpri) and D Y Patil College of Nursing (Pimpri).
Also, the students who had paid fees more than subscribed by the Samiti after 1430 hrs on August 23 should file affidavits stating so in the court before September 5.
The court was hearing a petition filed by the Parents' Association of Medical Students against the Association of Management of Unaided Private Medical and Dental Colleges alleging that they were charging fees much higher than that prescribed by the Samiti. The case is likely to come up for further hearing on September 11.
