Medical fee row: SC dismisses govt’s plea challenging HC order

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday declined to revoke a High Court rule that permitted Kannur, Karuna and KMCT medical colleges to conduct admissions with higher fee.

Dismissing the plea by the kerala government challenging the High Court rule, the Supreme Court said it cannot intervene in the matter as it was too late. The court let the High Court take a decision on the disputes regarding the fee-scale.

The admission supervisory committee headed by Justice J.M. James had decided Rs 4.4 lakh as the annual fee for Kannur Medical College and Karuna Medical College. The managements, however, approached the High Court which increased the fee to Rs 10 lakh and Rs 7.50 lakh, respectively.

That apart, KMCT Medical College, Kozhikode, which was given approval in the final phases of the MBBS admission, was allowed to charge Rs 10 lakh for seats other than in the NRI quota by the High Court. For the NRI quota, the college was charging Rs 18 lakh.

The contention of the government was that colleges could only collect the fee decided by the James committee.
