SC grants more time to medical college to deposit Rs 5 crore fine on NMC request
New Delhi: Granting the apex medical education regulator, the National Medical Commission (NMC) an extension of time to comply with the earlier order of Supreme Court directing Saraswati Medical College to deposit an amount of Rs 5 crores to the Supreme Court's Registry, the Apex Court on Tuesday has allowed the plea of NMC. The earlier direction was given by the Supreme court as it was alleged that the medical institution had intentionally violated the Medical Council regulations.
The Supreme Court had earlier directed the NMC to file an action taken report before it.
ANI adds that Gaurav Sharma, a lawyer appearing for the NMC, submitted to the apex court and requested more time, as its earlier direction couldn't be complied with keeping in view the Covid-19 pandemic.
