Even before a day was out since the Kerala High Court allowed the Government to take over 50 per cent of the post-graduate seats in private medical colleges, the Christian Professional College management Federation on Friday declared that it would not accept the fee structure set by the Government-appointed regulatory authority.

Federation president George Paul said that they would not accept the fee structure fixed by the Justice PA Muhammad Commission but would charge fees in the range of `4 lakh to `16 lakh per student in the clinical and non-clinical categories. If this gets legal acceptance, the concept of Government quota in medical PG courses would become meaningless.

The Muhammad Commission had fixed the fee range as between `3.5 lakh and `5 lakh each for students admitted in self-financing colleges from the Government's list. However, George Paul said that the Government had no right to fix the fees in the federation's colleges as per the earlier court judgements.

He said the colleges under the federation would abide by the court order to admit students from the Government's merit list in 50 per cent of the PG seats but on the fee structure of their choice. "How can the Muhammad committee fix fees in our colleges? These are the stands that are causing uncertainty in the education sector," he said.

However, Private Medical College Managements Association sources said George Paul was worried about losing the money they had collected from students admitted illegally in seats that came under the 50 per cent quota of the Government.
