The Parliamentary Education and Health Committee today chose to frame a sub-advisory group to examine claims against therapeutic universities of charging additional expense from understudies.
Seat of board Jay Puri Gharti declared that sub-advisory group would examine each of the 21 therapeutic universities of the nation.
As of late, a group of Nepal Medical Council found that Gandaki Medical College Teaching Hospital and Research Center, Pokhara, charged additional expense from MBBS understudies. The NMC shaped a test board in the wake of accepting protests from understudies.
According to the administration set expense structure, schools in Kathmandu valley can charge not more than Rs 38.5 lakh from understudies, while universities outside the valley can charge not more than Rs 42 lakh from understudies.
The test advisory group, which presented its report to NMC on February 27, expressed that the school was discovered charging additional expense from understudies for the sake of yearly expense, library, transportation and field visit. On March 22, the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology guided those schools to return additional expense charged from understudies.
Be that as it may, Chair Gharti said even the administration had been chipping away at it. Conversing with The Himalayan Times, board part Yogesh Bhattrai said the sub-advisory group would not just examine into claims that therapeutic schools charged additional expense from understudies, yet in addition see whether these universities meet the criteria set by the administration.
“We have chosen that the sub-board will likewise investigate whether these schools meet the requires criteria. On the off chance that we find that schools don’t meet the required criteria, we will request that the administration scrap them,” he said.
In the interim, a PAC sub-board today begun discourse on the back payments of the Ministry of Defense. Organizer of sub-board Birodh Khatiwada said they had beginning investigating overdue debts of MoD.
