Institutes offering physiotherapy course restrained

New Delhi: Not satisfied with the quality of
distance education provided by some institutes in
physiotherapy, the Delhi High Court has restrained them from
offering such courses.

A division bench comprising Chief Justice Dipak Misra and
Justice Mukta Gupta passed the order on a petition filed by
Indian Association of Physiotherapists (IAP) contending that
such a practice would erode the quality of education in a
subject having a large component of practical teaching.

The bench directed Allahabad Agricultural Institute,
Rajasthan Vidyapeeth in Bareilly,Baba Deep Singh Indo-American
Institute of medico-technicals in Patiala, Modern institute of
Para-Medical Science in Cuddalore and University of Technology
& Sciences in Raipur to stop offering degree, diploma and
certificate courses in physiotherapy through distance mode.

IAP, the professional body for physiotherapists in India,
regulates and gives recognition to various colleges offering
undergraduate and post-graduate courses in physiotherapy in
the country.

Holding that subjects with large component of practical
teaching should be taught in face-to-face mode, higher
education regulator UGC had earlier this month imposed a ban
on offering physiotherapy courses in distance mode.

The University Grants Commission had said physiotherapy
course involves large component of practical teaching and
cannot be properly imparted in distance mode.
