THE STATE Government will simplify the existing provisions for conducting nursing, para-medical and medical courses in private colleges.
Presently, the private colleges have to seek no-objection certificate (NOC) from the Government for conducting the courses. For this, they are required to submit details of their fixed and moveable properties and solvency certificates.
The institutions demanded for the simplification of the procedure as they face difficulties in fulfilling the formalities. The State Government has decided that NOCs will be given under certain conditions, laid down for the purpose.
As per the conditions, documents related to ownership of the college properties will be submitted in place of the solvency certificate. The colleges will submit these documents with an affidavit.
Besides, the amount of the difference in the form of FDR will now be taken after deducting the amount deposited by new colleges with the Medical Education, Para-medical and Central Council. The institutions that do not submit the FDR will be asked to do that with the difference.
The FDR will be submitted within 45 days from the date of the issuing of the order. This relaxation will be applicable for 2006-07 only.
However, fulfilling the conditions of fixed properties will be compulsory for all colleges. State Government has made this interim arrangement to dispose of the existing cases. The Commissioner, Higher Education, will separately make the necessary amendments to the policy.
