* Sri Lanka Medical Council to meet tomorrow to decide on controversial gazette notification
Sun, Mar 16, 2014, 08:05 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 16, Colombo: The Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) will meet tomorrow to decide on the action to be taken regarding the controversial gazette notification issued by the Higher Education Ministry.

The gazette notification has made it optional for private degree awarding institutions to obtain compliance certificates from the relevant professional bodies.

The amended University Act applies to private institutions that award degrees in medicine, engineering and architecture.

Following objections raised by several professional bodies to the revision stating that the move would jeopardize the quality of professionals, President Mahinda Rajapaksa had ordered the gazette notification to be repealed.

However, the Higher Education Ministry has yet failed to follow the Presidential directive.

Apart from the SLMC, other professional bodies have also raised objections and will discuss action to be taken against the failure of the Higher Education Ministry to comply with the President's directive.
