MBBS Fee Issue: Doon Medical College students seek resumption of reasonable fee structure, move letter to CM
Demanding a reasonable fee structure the students of government medical colleges have submitted a letter to the Chief Minister of Uttarakhand asking him to take necessary steps for the resumption of a logical fee structure.
Uttarakhand: With an increased amount of whooping Rs 20 lakh medical college fee, it has become a task for Uttarakhand medicos to arrange the money and complete their MBBS course.
This came after the state government called off the bond between the medicos and the state government which helped them in getting a subsidized fee of rupees 50000 per year.
According to the bond, previously the undergraduate medical students of Government Medical College were given a chance to pursue MBBS courses with a subsidized fee if they agree to work five years on government medical facilities after their completion of the course. However, as the Uttarakhand government removed this condition bond, many of them are facing difficulties as now the fees have increased 8 times from 50k to 4.11 lacs per annum.
Facing the burden of unreasonable fee, one of the first year MBBS students of Haldwani Government Medical College may be unable to continue his further studies as his mother could not arrange the installment fee for his 2nd year MBBS course.
Last year, after the state government removed the condition of 'Bond' for a subsidized fee which amounted to Rs 50,000 per year, the fee reached over Rs 4.2 lakh per year for MBBS in two government medical colleges of Uttarakhand! #20lakhforMBBS pic.twitter.com/CZqYMbRVoo— Vineet Upadhyay (@VineetTNIE) July 15, 2020
