Private medical colleges fee

Islamabad: A three-member Supreme Court (SC) bench on Wednesday directed the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council's (PM&DC) Secretary to file comments till February 15 on the fee structure of private medical colleges. The bench, comprising Justice Sardar Muhammad Raza Khan, Justice Ch Ijaz Ahmed and Justice Mahmood Akhtar Shahid Siddiqui, was hearing a suo moto notice taken by Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry on an application seeking reduction in the fee being charged by the private medical colleges. The application was filed by an educationist Amjad Khan, who is serving as Assistant Professor in Government Degree College Mian Channu. The applicant has sought direction to the private medical colleges to fix minimum fee at Rs 500,000 instead of Rs 800, 000. While entertaining the application on January 18, the CJP had issued notices to the PM&DC and the Attorney General, besides directing the private medical colleges to furnish para-wise comments on the application through the PM&DC. The CJP had directed that the application be treated as a petition under Article 184(3) of the Constitution. In its preliminary report, the PMDC has submitted that it had neither given any fee structure to any college nor was involved in any related activity, however it was in the process of consultation with the federal government for rationalising fee structure of the private medical colleges.
