* Sri Lanka Medical Council to discuss on action against the Higher Education Ministry's failure
Mon, Feb 24, 2014, 08:15 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 24, Colombo: The Sri Lanka Medical Council will discuss the action to be taken against the failure of the Higher Education Ministry to rescind the gazette notification amending university regulation under Universities Act.

A Presidential order has also been issued to the Higher Education Ministry to rescind the gazette notification that has made it optional for institutions awarding degrees such as medicine, engineering and architecture, to obtain compliance certification from the relevant professional bodies.

However, the Higher Education Ministry has failed to repeal the gazette notification.

The Sri Lanka Medical Council has strongly objected to the amendment and is to discuss the matter and decide on a course of action at its committee meeting next week.

Meanwhile, the Institution of Engineers President, Shavinath Fernando also called for the withdrawal of the notification.

"We thank the President for his timely intervention in the matter, but we request him to ensure that proper consultation is done when changes to regulations affecting the standards of higher education in professional fields such as Medical, Engineering and Architecture are made," he has said.
