Self-financing fees: Kerala govt moves Supreme Court against Christian medical managements
New Delhi: The Kerala government has filed a petition in the Supreme Court against Christian managements in connection with the self-financing medical fees.
The state government has moved against Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church Medical College, Kolenchery and Jubilee Mission Medical College in Thrissur. Kerala has demanded immediate stay of the High Court verdict in favour of Christian medical managements.
The Christian medical managements had secured a verdict from the HC that students must be informed about the high fees demanded by the colleges. Kerala has moved against this.
Earlier, Christian medical managements including Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church Medical College in Kolenchery, Jubilee Mission Medical College in Thrissur, Amala Institute of Medical Sciences Thrissur and Pushpagiri Medical College had informed the Kerala government that they needed only Rs 7.65 lakh as fees during this academic year. Based on this, the admission commissioner issued a notice regarding the fees.
However, on November 17, Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church Medical College in Kolenchery and Jubilee Mission Medical College in Thrissur secured a verdict from the High Court that a verdict regarding fees issued on November 13 was applicable to them also. The Kerala government has moved the apex court against this.
At present, the state government has filed petitions in the Supreme Court against 11 medical colleges in connection with self-financing fees.
