BENGALURU: The High Court on Monday disposed of a public interest litigation challenging the enhancement of licence fee for running medical establishments in the state.

The petition was filed by the Indian Medical Association, the Karnataka Private Medical Establishment Association and Dr Mrutyunjaya C Sindhur, a medical practitioner from Hubballi.

The petitioners argued that medical establishments are facing a difficulty because of the licence fee fixed based on the number of beds.

The Urban Development Department had issued a notification on the tariff of licence fee to run hospitals, clinics and nursing homes in the city limits. A division bench observed, “We do not find any substance in the argument.”
