Bench reverses the decision of the Rajasthan High Court quashing the Amended Dental Board Regulation 6(2)(h).

The Supreme Court has ruled that the right to establish an educational institution can be regulated to maintain academic standards.

“Such regulatory measures should, in general, be aimed at ensuring the maintenance of appropriate academic standards, atmosphere and infrastructure and the prevention of maladministration,” observed a panel led by Judge L. Nageswara Rao.

However, the court said, measures such as setting a rigid fee structure, dictating the formation and composition of a governing body, the compulsory appointment of teachers and staff for the appointment or appointment of students for admissions would be “unacceptable restrictions”.

The court’s submissions were part of a judgment upholding Dental Council of India Regulation 6(2)(h) (Establishment of New Dental Colleges, Initiation of New or Higher Course of Study or Training and Increase capacity for admission into dental colleges). , 2006.

The Supreme Court overturned a Rajasthan High Court decision that invalidated the amended 6(2)(h) regulation.

The amendment required an applicant to attach the proposed dental college to a nearby government or private medical college recognized by the Medical Council of India.
