5 Crores for Supreme Court

Since the College has also not complied with the orders passed by this Court in (2012) 5 SCC 628 and has permitted the students to continue their studies, to send a message to the College and other Medical Colleges, we are of the view that it would be appropriate if the College is directed to deposit an amount of Rs. 5,00,00,000/- (Rupees Five Crores) in the Registry of this Court within four weeks from today. We order accordingly and observe that the conduct of the College is most unfortunate. The amount of Rs. 5,00,00,000/- (Rupees Five Crores) so deposited towards costs shall not be recovered in any manner from any student or adjusted against the fees or provision of facilities for students of subsequent batches.”
