PETALING JAYA: A private college in Melaka has been subjected to legal action for conducting courses without the approval of the private higher educational institutions (IPTS) chief registrar.

The college was fined RM35,000 by the Melaka Sessions Court under Section 38(2) of the Private Higher Education Institutions Act.

It is the second time this year an institution has been prosecuted for offences under the Act, the first one being a college in Sabah, the Education Ministry said in a statement yesterday.

“The Higher Education Department through the Enforcement and Inspectorate Division has issued more than 60 compound notices, valued at more than RM1mil, to several private institutions of higher learning due to various offences committed under the Act.

“We hope these legal actions will educate other private institutions to comply with the provisions outlined under the Act,” the ministry added.

According to the ministry, the Private Higher Educational Institutions Act regulates the establishment, registration, management and the closure of IPTS.
