Medical Seats – Management quota can’t be charged more says Madras High Court

Published

A Division Bench of Justices R.Subbiah and C.Saravanan said, “The only discrimination that is permissible is regarding fees than can be charged from students admitted against the seats allocated under the NRI quota, which has been fixed at 15% of the total seats available in every medical institution.” The judges said that the fees collected should be used only for subsidizing the education of students from economically weaker sections.

To avoid the misusage of NRI quota to make money, the Bench suggested that either the Assembly could pass a law to regulate such admissions or the government could issue executive instructions on the subject.

“Higher fee amount can be collected only from students admitted from the NRI quota and such excess money collected from those students can be used for subsidizing the fees of students coming from the economically weaker sections of the society.
