Rs 1.2 crore MBBS fee for management and NRI seats at this UP Private Medical College

UP: Lucknow’s Era Medical College seems to have passed all previous private medical college records by announcing an exorbitant Rs 1.2 crore for each of its MBBS seats falling under the management and NRI quota for the 2018-19 academic session.

The fee structure of the college widely publicized on the social media has led to an enraged audience blaming the government for carrying out an unabashed sale of medical seats in a country facing acute medical doctor shortage.

 TNIE reports that the college has fixed the Ist year fee at Rs 30 lakh, the highest figure on record and the 5th year fee fixed on the least expensive scale of  Rs.15 lakh. The five-year costs summing up to become Rs 1,20,97,000.   The hostel fee in this total amounts to Rs 4 lakh per year, or a little more than  Rs 33,000 a month.

“NEET is now mandatory for admission to medical colleges, so only those who clear the cut-off mark get in,” said a senior official.

The unabashedly fixed high fee on the  by the college with the approval of the MCI in 2006 had elicited many angry reactions. President, Resident Doctors’ Association, AIIMS, Delhi, Harjit Singh Bhatti tweeted

 

Former Union Health and Family Welfare, Secretary, K Sujatha Rao tweeted saying that fee was a very serious issue .“The implications are not good for India. We cannot afford medical education to be for the rich only.”

    It is a fairly mundane low level college. Such fees are crazy. If it was a highly ranked college like Manipal there may be some justification. Even SRMC may be acceptable. SRMC with its connections is going up in the ranks.

  4. donot go there ,you cannot run a college with peanuts( low fees),govt. is a big failure,not ready to spend on health. spends all pecious tax payers money on cheap popularity schemes for votes & political power. you donot dare to ask these politicians of their wrong doing , but question private colleges. if you are poor ,you are not allowed there,you have no matter of right at all.keep quite.
