Karnataka private medical colleges in for a 15 percent hike in fee

Bengaluru: Private medical institutions of Karnataka are in for a fee hike of 15%. This is being done to sustain 3,500 medical seats for the local students writing the national Eligibility Test (NEET), likely to be held in May this year. Karnataka has 55 colleges offering 8,075 MBBS seats.

The subsidized government quota medical fee was raised from Rs. 55,000 to Rs. 70,000 last year. While fee for seats filled up through NEET was hiked from Rs. 4.25 lac to Rs. 5.75 lac.

It is believed that a consensual agreement has been signed between the Karnataka Government and private colleges under the Karnataka Professional Educational Institutions (Regulation of Admission and Determination of Fee) Act, 2006. The agreement calls for Non Minority Private Colleges giving away 40% of their seats for local students. The annual fee for these seats is  fixed by the government and is subsidized as well. Minority colleges give away 25% seats for local entrants in the fray, reports

Of the 8,075 seats being offered by the state, 2,400 fall in the government quota.

    Medical colleges has to spend lots of money to run the show and money doesn\’t grow on trees. Therefore the private colleges have to collect the money to run the show. When it comes to spending the money the Private MEDICAL colleges are much better, they won\’t spend the money unnecessarily. They always try to improve the quality and performance. That\’s why they out beat the Government Medical colleges, both in numbers and performance. In most the states ACROSS India , by making use of Government policies like vaccination programs, insurance schemes the Private colleges are also attracting enough patients unlike in the past with thin patient strength and empty beds The private institutions encourage good DOCTORS , there is less Politics unlike in the Government Medical colleges , where money , caste other factors plays an important role to get a high post DESPITE HAVING Merit and Talent. My suggestion if you are good at work get into private Medical colleges . If you have caste , money , regional and religious advantage or dirty politicians behind you think about Government.
