UP government sets fees of medical courses in private colleges
Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government on Friday announced the new fees structure of medical courses in private collages of the state.
For admissions in MBBS, the fees can vary between Rs 8.50 lakh and Rs 11.50 lakh, while the students will have to pay between Rs 1.37 lakh and Rs 3.65 lakh for admission in BDS, said Anita Bhatnagar Jain, Principle Secretary Medical Education.
The same fees structure will be followed in three consecutive sessions i.e. 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20.
The government has formulated a Fees Regulation Committee to keep a check on the fees of private colleges across the state. The committee has gone through the balance sheets, expenses and earnings of all the private collages of the state to determine their fees structure for various courses.
This year, along with the government medical colleges, the private medical colleges are also conducting the counselling of students for admissions in MBBS and BDS courses on the basis of their Uttar Pradesh National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (UP NEET) score.
The first set of counselling is scheduled to take place on July 15-16. Hence, the government announced the fees structure of different courses in various private colleges a day before.
It may be recalled that in the last session, the MBBS fees in private colleges was Rs 11.30 lakh, while the fees of BDS in dental colleges was Rs 3.25 lakh.
The Yogi Adityanath government, however, has authorised the private colleges to set the hostel fees and security deposit.
