HC shocked over huge fees at medical colleges

The Karnataka High Court on Friday expressed shock over crores of rupees being charged as fees by the medical colleges.

A division bench comprising Justice H G Ramesh was hearing a petition filed by Ajay Nair seeking directions
to a college to refund his fees and return his original documents.

The petitioner has contended that he was provisionally admitted for the undergraduate MBBS course under the NRI quota seat at Sri Devaraj Urs Medical College, Kolar. He paid Rs 27 lakh as fee for the first year on July 22, 2017.  The petitioner submitted that his mother lost her job in Saudi Arabia on August 23, 2017. His father submitted a letter to the college surrendering the seat on August 30, 2017. The petitioner was told that the original documents would be returned along with refund of the fees.

But, the college neither returned his original documents nor refunded the fee he had paid. The court issued notices to the state government and the Sri Devaraj Urs Medical College, Kolar.

The bench said that how would the medical graduates earn crores of rupees they pay as fee in future.
