KOCHI: The Kerala High Court on Friday criticised the state government for the delay in rectifying the mistakes in the earlier ordinance fixing the fee structure for medical seats in self-financing medical colleges. The court orally observed there was a lack of coordination between various departments. The court asked whether the government was sleeping till the 11th hour to rectify the mistakes.

The government submitted it had released new ordinance on the new fee structure recommended by the fee regulatory committee. As per the committee’s recommendation, the tuition fee had been provisionally fixed at `5 lakh per year for 85 per cent of MBBS seats. The committee has also fixed the fee for NRI candidates at `20 lakh. The fee earlier fixed for NRI candidates was 15 lakh per MBBS seat.

The court also reserved its order on a batch of petitions filed by various self-financing colleges challenging the earlier fee structure fixed by the committee constituted under the Kerala Medical Education (Regulation and Control of Admission to Private Medical Educational Institutions) Ordinance, 2017.
