Fee Charged By Private Medical Colleges Should Neither Be Excessive Nor Exploitative, Duty Of Admission & Fee Regulatory Committee To Ensure That
CASE: Najiya Neermunda vs. Kunhitharuvai Memorial Charitable Trust
CORAM: Justices L. Nageswara Rao and S. Ravindra Bhat
CITATION: LL 2021 SC 115
Observation: The Court observed that the Kerela High Court committed an error in directing the Committee to take into account only audited balance sheets and provisional profit and loss accounts in the absence of audited balance sheets, to fix the fee. “Though we are in agreement with the submission made on behalf of the managements that the fee as proposed by them should be considered by the Committee, it is no more res Integra that the right conferred on the institutions to fix fee for professional courses is subject to regulation.”, the bench said.
