ISLAMABAD, July 16 (TNS) Mian Attique of the MQM (Pakistan) has raised the issue of non-refund of Rs 20 million to the students by Shifa International Hospital, collected under the pretext of entry test, in the Senate Standing committee for Health.
The Health Minister Saira Afzal assured the Committee to write to the Shifa Hospital to refund the money.
Private hospitals running medical colleges in the federal capital are illegally plundering the students by violating the rules set by the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council.
It is worth mentioning that PMDC has its own system of entry test but Shifa hospital held another entry test of its own and collected additional amount of Rs 6,000 from every student.
Mian Attique said if the issue was not settled, he would move an adjournment motion in the Senate.
