MP: MBBS fee may be double at the time of actual admission
Bhopal: In a revelation made by sources, fee of private medical colleges mentioned at the time of admission may not be the same as that taken during the actual time of admission.
The Admission and Fee Regulatory Committee Madhya Pradesh (AFRC) will be holding a meeting in the first week of October, where there is a chance of the fee being doubled say sources.
According to a consultant of a private medical college, "The current fee is being calculated as after a verbal statement by the Directorate, Medical Education (DME) pegging cost incurred on a MBBS course by colleges at around Rs 5 lakh. The expenditure is more than double that amount."
The calculations for fee of a Medical College are calculated by roughly adding 30% to the expenditure costs of an MBBS seat in a government Medical College.
According to informed sources the Gandhi Medical College spends approximately 12 lac on every student annually. Fee for private medical colleges charged at admission time being Rs. 5 Lac, which in all likelihood, may later double.
