PG fee hiked to a whopping Rs 98.95 lakh at Maharishi Markandeshwar Medical College

Chandigarh: Medical Fee for MD and MS courses in two medical colleges in Haryana that were allowed to decide on their fee themselves  have raised it as high as  Rs. 98.85 lakh. The two courses are the most sought after MD and MS courses. This has led to a disquiet among those seeking admissions to these courses.

Parents of some course  aspirants citing the example of  Yogi Adityanath government say  reining in private medical colleges, the UP Chief Minister has pressured the managements to decrease the fee to Rs. 11  lakh per year(course fee for three years amounting to Rs. 33 lakh), in contrast to what is happening in Haryana where the parents are being fleeced, by allowing colleges to get away with a course fee of nearly Rs. 1 crore.

A 50% increase in fee  has been witnessed in Maharishi Markandeshwar Institute of Medical Sciences and Research, Mullana, which has the permission to run MD and MS courses in the maximum number of clinical and non-clinical branches of medicine and surgery. The annual fee for MD in radio diagnosis has been raised from Rs 17.59 lakh last year to Rs 32.95 lakh for the 2017-18 session by the  college.

MD courses in skin and paediatrics, which charged Rs 19.80 lakh in 2016-17, has  increased their fee to  Rs 31.95 lakh per annum, for the current year. While the MD/MS courses in eye, obstetrics, medicine, and orthopaedics gynaecology, psychiatry, surgery and TB chest has been raised from Rs 17.59 lakh in some cases and Rs 19.80 lakh in some others in 2016-17 to Rs 29.95 lakh for this year.

It was just last year, that the college had hiked its annual fees from average Rs 11 lakh to Rs 17.59 lakh to Rs 19.80 depending upon the popularity of the course.

The SGT Post Graduate Medical College, Budhera (Gurugram), which has approval for  its non clinical branches alone,  and is ‘ bestowed with special favour or permission’ has hiked its fee by more than 50%. None of its non clinical branches  are much in demand.

The government medical colleges in contrast are charging a mere Rs 21,153  as annual fee in the state are charging annual fee of Rs 21,153 .

“My daughter is eligible for a private medical college according to her rank in the National Entrance and Eligibility Test (NEET), but the private college at Mullana is charging Rs 90 lakh plus as course fee for obstetrics and gynaecology. My bankers told me that according to the RBI norms, I can get a maximum of Rs 10 lakh as education loan for the entire course. I don’t know how to afford my daughter’s education,” says a parent.

The list of candidates with category wise merit will be displayed on April 12 and the counseling in Pt BD Sharma University of Health Sciences, Rohtak, is to begin on April 18.

Anil Vij, Minister for Health and Medical Education and Research,said he wasn’t aware of these colleges having  announced such a hefty fee. “When we are going for common counselling under the Supreme Court guidelines, no college should be allowed to charge more than what others are charging,” he told the Tribune.

    In true sense it will cost more than a crore ,only well established colleges can provide for that price. . No other country in the world can provide a standard Medical education for such a small amount. As a matter of fact The Government spends even more money than the Private medical colleges in making of a Doctor. Despite getting so much better benefit , the very same Doctors refuse to work for the Poor and. Needy patients from whom they devolped clinical skills, at the cost of public money. There is no compulsion on any body to join these colleges , they can always look for some other alternative like Qualifying for a Government seat through the compitative exams . Can pass USMLE, Plab go abroad for better training . Or can take Government job , try as a in service P G ( on Deputation) . not only its free , the even get study leave and salary and other benefits for servings the poor and needy. And other options to get bank loans and to repay once they Start earning. Or to spend the Father\’s money ( well or ill earned money). Last to be a G P so that one help more patients than the So called consultant.

  2. There is no 10 lakh limit to education loan…

    Countrywide, probably next highest fee structure is of Dr DY Patil Medical College, Hosp & Research Centre, Pune where annual fees for 2017-18 in MD (Anae/Psy/Pae/Med/Dermat/Polmonary Med/Radio-diagnosis/ Emergency Med) & MS(ENT/Opthal/OBG/ Ortho/Surg) is 24.5 L.

  4. If you can\’t afford the private college fees why the hell are you so adamant in getting admission there!!?? The government colleges are there for this purpose.
