New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday will hear the appeal of Nair Service Society against the High Court order which rejected its plea challenging a 2017 amendment to a state law on admissions into medical courses in Kerala.

Kerala Medical Education (Regulation and Control of Admission to Private Medical Educational Institutions) Act, 2017, allowed the Fee Regulatory Committee to review the documents of students taking admission to the 15 per cent management quota seats.

The clause 2(P) maked the law applicable to private aided and unaided colleges of the state. The NSS contended that the aided and unaided institutions cannot be treated alike. It also argued that the law is a violation of the verdict of TMA Pai Foundation vs State Of Karnataka.

NSS general secretary G Sukumaran Nair, ANSS Homoeo Medical College principal Dr C Bindukumari pleaded that it has complete authority over the management quota seats. Bench of justice DY Chandrachud will consider the case on Friday.
