Private medical colleges in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

Admission fee refund: Private medical colleges defying council rules
Peshawar, Sept 20: Private medical colleges in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have been violating rules concerning fee structure set for them by the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PM&DC), students and parents say.

Some of the medical institutions often show reluctance to refund admission fee to students if they want to cancel their admission and seek a seat in another college, they said.The entry test results for admission to medical and dental colleges have been declared and students are desperate to get admission in MBBS or BDS course. Those who can afford and have less chances of getting admission in public sector colleges are trying their luck in private sector institutions.

"Unfortunately, some of private colleges are exploiting the situation and are not willing to follow the PM&DC rules concerning the admission fee refund," said a senior doctor, who is trying to get admission for his son in a private medical college.

He said that merit varies from college to college in the private sector. He said that to get admission in a well-established private college and also secure a chance in case of failure students submit admission forms in two or three colleges simultaneously. However, he said, students were not sure whether they would get the admission fee refunded if they did not wish to join a particular college.

The PM&DC has issued a notification for admission in MBBS/BDS wherein apart from the criteria for admission it has also laid down the fee structure and refund rules for the private colleges, but some of the colleges are not following these rules.

According to the council rules, none of the medical or dental institutions in the private sector shall charge a student over Rs500,000 for yearly fee. This fee shall exclude university fee, taxes, hostel fee, transport fee and the one time admission fee. Furthermore, the one-time admission fee shall not exceed the 15 percent of the yearly fee. Copies of all receipts shall be submitted to the PM&DC accordingly.

"If a student wishes to leave an institution and does not join classes then there shall be a 100 per cent refund of the deposited fee except the one-time admission fee. If the student wishes to leave the institution within one month of joining classes there shall be 50 per cent refund of the deposited fee and after one month there shall be a 25 per cent refund," the rules said.

According to the rules, any other monetary demand and non-compliance of the laid down regulations, if reported, shall be construed a major violation, which will make the institution liable for action under Section 22 of the PM&DC Ordinance, 1962.

It has been learnt that some private medical colleges are not refunding the fee, which has been jeopardising the students' plans of seeking admission into best colleges. Dawn

Schools vacated to resume classes today: minister
Peshawar: Khyber Pakhtun-khwa Minister for Schools and Literacy Sardar Hussain Babak has said almost all school buildings housing flood-hit people in the province would be got vacated for resuming classes today (Monday).

"Except a few schools in Nowshera and Charsadda districts, all the schools buildings have been got vacated from homeless people across the province to reopen the educational institutions after summer vacations," the minister said.

He said about 1,060 school buildings were converted into relief camps soon after the flash floods and torrential rains on July 28 had wreaked havoc in the province, leaving hundreds of thousands people homeless. "We have given shelter to about one hundred thousands homeless people in these schools," he said and added that most of these schools had been voluntarily vacated by these people.

The minister hoped that about 85 percent of these schools would be re-opened for regular classes on Monday whereas some schools in Nowshera and Charsadda would be got vacated within the next few days.

The provincial government had extended summer vacations in the flood-hit areas of the province till September 20 as the schools in Nowshera, Charsadda and Peshawar were still occupied by the affected families.

The minister said the floods and monsoon rains damaged about 900 schools in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa of which 200 were destroyed and 700 partially damaged. Babak said the education department had put the loss to the schools as a result of floods and rains in the province at Rs5 billion. "We appeal to the affected families to voluntarily vacate the school buildings for the sake of future of thousands of school children," he said.

The government has four options for resuming classes in the flood-affected areas where the school buildings were completely or partially damaged, the minister said and added that children of damaged schools might be shifted to nearby schools, tented schools or rented buildings or starting second shifts in the schools.
