CHENNAI: The Madras High Court will conduct a review of the fee fixation order of self-financing professional colleges. A bench comprising Chief Justice S K Kaul and Justice T S Sivagnanam passed this order after hearing a petition by Velammal Medical College Hospital and Research Institute.

The bench accepted the petitioner’s contention that expenses of the institution have not been taken into account, which is alleged to be obvious from the fact that the total salary to be disbursed was `11 crore while as per the fee fixed, the recovery would be only `10 crore.  After hearing the arguments, the bench directed the fee fixation committee to file an affidavit within two weeks explaining the fee fixed for the petitioner. The notice was accepted by P Sanjay Gandhi, additional government pleader appearing on behalf of the State government and the Commitee of Fixation of Fee In respect of Self Financing Professional Colleges. The next hearing will be held on June 29, 2015.

The committee was constituted under the chairmanship of Justice N V Balasubramanian for fixing fees of the colleges. The institutions were asked to submit the fee revision proposal for under graduate and post graduate medical and dental courses for the academic years 2014-15, 2015-16, and 2016-17.
