The South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine is scheduled to announce its decision today (30) regarding the proposals the Government has announced on the future of SAITM.

The management of SAITM will meet and hold discussions and announce their decision subsequently.

However, a SAITM spokesperson said that the proposals announced by the Government had not reached the institute and had seen them through the media.

The government decided to abolish the medical faculty of SAITM yesterday (29).

Issuing a communiqué last afternoon, the Department of Government Information noted that the government intends to establish a not-for-profit degree awarding organization instead.

The "Presidential Committee to Resolve Issues Related to the Faculty of Medicine of SAITM", has presented eight proposals in order to find a permanent solution that is reasonable to all stakeholders in line with the government policy following the recommendations made by numerous stakeholder groups.

The communiqué signed by the Government Information Director General said that a committee comprising high ranking officers should be appointed to implement the relevant proposals and relevant activities should be completed by the end of the year without fail.

Meanwhile, the GMOA media spokesperson Dr Prasad Colombage said that the GMOA Executive Committee would meet today to decide on government’s proposals.
