Recently, the Supreme Court of India remarked, “Because of the cheaper Education, Indian students are going to Ukraine”. The remark was made while considering a batch of petitions challenging orders passed by the High Courts of Delhi, Chattisgarh, and Karnataka setting aside the moratorium issued by the Pharmacy Council of India (PCI) on the opening of new pharmacy colleges for a period of five years with effect from the academic year 2020-21.
The Bench headed by Justice BR Gavai said –
“Because of cost of medical education here, the students of India were required to go to Ukraine as it is much cheaper there”
Further, the Solicitor General of India Tushar Mehta said that education is not an industry. Added, it would be understandable if the students say that they wanted to study but don’t have enough institutes and lost their careers but it was surprising that the colleges are complaining about losing years.
Justice Gavai said – “Everyone knows nowadays education is an industry”
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta says, “Something somewhere has gone wrong”,
“There’s another way to look at it, because of the cost of medical education here, the students of India were required to go to Ukraine as it is much cheaper there. There’s always two sides to a coin.” Justice Gavai said.
