Supreme court fines medical college for ignoring court order


New Delhi: Supreme Court of India put a fine of five crore rupees on Mysuru based JSS Medical college as the college had taken more admissions than its sanctioned strength.

The college was allowed to have 150 MBBS seats but it took 200 admissions. An Apex court in 2012 had rejected the plea of JSS Medical College to be allowed to increase the seats. Supreme Court called it a necessity to deal with those who are not comprehending to the law.

However, the students were allowed to stay and complete their courses and Court said there was no point for not letting students complete the course.

The number of students in India is so high these days that there is a lack of colleges. While the government colleges do not have enough seats, the need of private colleges increases.

All the colleges are crowded up with the number of students and it gives a chance to all those colleges who are looking to earn money to maximize this situation.

The decision by the Supreme Court is encouraging as it sends a signal to all the colleges, government and privates to follow the rules.

The number of students in a class actually impacts the quality of the teaching in a negative manner. Many colleges are running classes with too many students present in the class and which is why some of the students do not get the attention and get left behind.

JSS Medical college will have to pay the hefty fine for ignoring the court order but with this decision, Court hopes to make educational institute follow the rules in future.
