Goa Dental College hikes fee by 800 percent for PG Courses, Medicos cry foul
Panaji: Calling the move "unreasonable, unjustified and arbitrary", the PG medicos of Goa Dental College have vehemently requested the government to reconsider their decision to increase the tuition fee by over 800 per cent for students who have already secured admission for various postgraduate courses.
The dental college, through a notice dated November 6, increased the fee for various PG Dental Courses from Rs 12000 per semester to Rs 1 lakh per semester.
However, the medicos claimed that during the entire admission process they were not given any idea that the course fee will face such a steep increase. They decided to pursue different PG courses under the institution after confirming the fee structure from the prospectus. Even while attending the counselling process they received no notice or information regarding the revised fee structure and they presumed that the same fee structure will continue.
