Private professional colleges shepherd

Dr. M.R. Jayaram, chairman, Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges-Karnataka (Comed-K) and Gokula Education Foundation (GEF), Bangalore. The Gokula Education Foundation manages the M.S. Ramaiah Group of 18 education institutions sited on a sprawling 65-acre campus in suburban Bangalore.

A commerce graduate of Bangalore University, in 2005 Jayaram was appointed chairman of Comed-K which currently has a membership of 157 engineering, 12 medical and 25 dental privately promoted colleges with an aggregate enrolment of 160,000 students in Karnataka. Following the Supreme Court’s landmark judgements in T.M.A. Pai Foundation vs. State of Karnataka & Ors (2002) and P.A. Inamdar (2005) cases, which permitted private colleges of professional education to administer their own collegiate entrance exams and levy reasonable tuition fees, an onerous responsibility to ‘voluntarily’ negotiate government quotas and fees with the state government has devolved upon Comed-K. Under Dr. Jayaram’s leadership, the consortium has successfully resisted arm-twisting by government and has repeatedly negotiated a fair deal for privately promoted colleges in the state.

Founded in 1962 by the late M.S. Ramaiah (1922-1997), a successful civil contractor, visionary, educationist, industrialist and philanthropist, GEF has promoted 18 education institutions (including a B-school, medical, dental, and engineering colleges) which provide Kg-Ph D level education to over 10,000 students.
