Kathmandu, Sept 21: The Tribhuvan University (TU) has urged Chitwan Medical College and Sciences, Bharatpur to return the amount it had overcharged MBBS students.
Issuing a press statement, the government has urged the college to charge students in line the fees chart endorsed by the Council of Ministers on October 14, 2018, TU registrar Dilliram Upreti said.
The TU has said its attention has been drawn towards closure of classes and even hospital services by students, citing the college overcharged them.
Stating the Council of Ministers' decision stipulates that no medical college is allowed to take fees exceeding the figure fixed by the government, it has urged both sides to sit for talks to fix the issue as 'agitation is never a solution to the problem'. Student's right to education and people's right to healthcare services should not be obstructed, the TU said.
