Thiruvananthapuram: It is understood that the uncertainty created at the last minute of medical admission should not affect the children and parents in any way and in view of that situation it is sufficient to charge the fee fixed by the Justice Rajendra Babu Committee from the students getting admission in the medical colleges under Christian Medical Management this year. Christian Medical Management informed the Commissioner of Entrance Examinations of the decision in this regard.
The association opined that the action taken by the Fee Regulatory Committee, which had fixed the fees this year, had left students in limbo, despite repeated criteria and timelines set by the Kerala High Court for determining fees in self-financing medical colleges. In the last three years, the Kerala High Court had quashed the fee structure fixed by the Fee Regulatory Committee and fixed the criteria for determining the fees and fees of each college on the basis of the revenue and expenditure of the colleges and the time frame for completion in the previous year before the commencement of the admission process.
But regardless of this, the Fee Regulatory Commission’s decision to fix this year’s fee structure by adding inflation to the fee rate, which was canceled by the court last year just a few days before the start of the allotment process, has drawn sharp criticism from the High Court. As the self-financing colleges approached the court against the November 4 order of the Fee Regulatory Committee, the first allotment to the medical courses, which was scheduled to take place on November 16, had to be postponed.
