MBBS, BDS fee for NRI, Management quota reduced in Andhra Pradesh
Vijayawada: In a major relief to medicos pursuing MBBS and BDS courses under management quota, the Andhra Pradesh government has decided to decrease the fee for category C (NRI quota) and category B (management quota) MBBS and dental students in private and self aided medical colleges.
At the same time, the authorities have also increased the MBBS, BDS fee for category A (convenor) quota.
The revised fee structure would be applicable to 17 private medical colleges and 14 dental colleges in the state.
Previously the MBBS and BDS medicos had to deliver charges for 5 years. However, after the new order, they will only need to pay charges for four and a half years. The annual fee will be collected at the beginning of each year but the new structure will be applicable only for said amount of years.
Likewise, the BDS fee has been reduced to 4 lakh per year from the earlier 5.46 lakh under management quota, while it has been fixed at 13,000 a year for convenor quota seats. The students claiming BDS seats under NRI quota have to pay up to 12 lakh per annum, reports TOI
