  PCI: why one must correlate internship fees with stipend to interns?

Ref. No. 14-218/2013-PCI/80899-81004 Dated:28 feb, 2013
ALL INSTITUTIONS APPROVED BY PCI FOR THE CONDUCT OF PHARM. D / PHARM. D (P.B) COURSE.
Sub.: Stipend for Pharm. D Students during internship.
Sir/Madam
With reference to the subject cited above, it is stated that there have been a strong demand from the students undergoing Pharm D course that they should be paid Stipend during the 6th year (internship) and in case Stipend is not paid they may be exempted from payment of fee during the internship period.
It is requested that your comments on the above demand may be sent to this council within 15 days to examine the matter further.
Yours faithfully

This letter/ common circular from PCI is confusing.This is so confusing- first of all the institutions should not expect fees for the internship year, which is a customary thing for other healthcare courses: may it be medical, dental, physiotherapy or nursing students- no body pays for the internship year. So why should one must co- relate the internship year fee with the stipend? Both are totally different things and un related. A Pharm D student must get stipend and must not be forced to give the fee for the Intenship year. This is so wrong!!!

          I just wonder Whats the pathetic status of  an organization like PCI- it simply has no authority or upperhand over its approved institutions. It actually doesnt has any control over these institutions.
