50% seats of private medical colleges will now have same fees as govt institutions: PM Modi



The decision to charge fees of 50 per cent seats in private medical colleges at par with government medical colleges will benefit the ‘poor and middle class’, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi. “You must have noticed that the government has taken another big decision just a few days ago that will benefit poor and middle-class children. We have decided that the fee for 50 per cent seats in the private medical colleges will be at par with the fee in the government medical colleges,” he said.

“They cannot charge more than that. As a result, about Rs 2,500 crore will be saved for the children from poor and middle-class families. Moreover, they will be able to get medical and technical education in their mother tongue so that the poor, middle-class and lower-middle-class children, who have not studied English in their schools, will also be able to become doctors,” the prime minister said when he interacted with ‘Jan Aushadhi Pariyojana’ beneficiaries via video-conferencing on the occasion of ‘Jan Aushadhi Diwas’.

The National Medical Commission (NMC) issued an office memorandum a few days ago, mentioning the decision of 50 per cent private college and deemed university seats at the price of medical college seats. Further, the announcement was made that it will be effective by the next academic session.
