Checking the standard of education in private colleges

Central bodies governing the functioning of alternative medicine courses have come under heavy criticism of late for the substandard quality of education and faculty in many colleges. With action being initiated to check the standard of education, private colleges teaching alternative medicine in the state may finally have to start worrying.
The New Delhi-based Central Council of Homeopathy has also increased the bank deposit amount to check the commercialization or rampant mushrooming of colleges. From Rs 3 lakh, interested parties now have to assure a bank guarantee of Rs 50 lakh to start a homeopathy college. Inspection charges too have been increased from a meagre Rs 25,000 which could be paid in installments, to Rs 3 lakh to be paid at a time.
Dr Lalit Verma, registrar of the council, said that all homeopathy colleges have been granted a one-year amnesty to give them time to meet the criteria. "It is a onetime opportunity. After that the lacunae would not be overlooked ," he said.
