CHENNAI: The Madras High Court has directed the State Health Department  to take appropriate action against the institutions which do not have approval from the Tamil Nadu Nurses and Midwives Council for conducting nursing and related courses.

The council had filed a writ petition in Madras High Court in May, 2012 against Bharath Sevak Samaj and other institutions, seeking direction to the State government to stop these institutions from offering such courses. According to the council, the courses offered and conducted by institutions were contrary to the provisions of the Tamil Nadu Nurses and Midwives Councils Act, 1926 as amended by Act 26 of 1960.

Justice TS Sivagnanam directed the council to file a representation with the State Health Department, which in turn was directed to take appropriate legal action within four weeks to prevent institutions from offering courses without permission.
