The Kerala Medical Education (Regulation and Control of Admissions to Private Medical Institutions) Bill, 2017 has also provisions of quota for SC, ST and OBC students in the private self financing medical colleges.
When passed, the bill will replace Kerala Medical Education (Regulation and Control of Admissions to Private Medical Institutions) Ordinance promulgated in April this year.
As per the bill, the fees and admission in private medical institutions will be regulated by an 11-member committee, which will be chaired by a retired Supreme Court judge.
The bill also provides opportunity to the people, who are aggrieved with the committee orders, to approach high court within 30 days of such order.
The bill was introduced by after reports that medical institutions were trying to tide over the admission procedure.
