IMA criticize Haryana decision to raise MBBS fees in public medical colleges to Rs 10 lakh per year

Dr. Rajan Sharma president of the Indian Medical Association (IMA) has criticized the decision by the Haryana government to raise the fees of government medical colleges in the State.

The public medical college fees have been increased to Rs 10 lakh per year from around Rs 50,000 per year. With these conditions, the candidate has to pay Rs 40 lakh for the four-year course to seeking admission in an MBBS course.

When Sharma was asked by ANI to comment on the government’s decision regarding fee hike, he said “I strongly oppose the decision. He also raised concerns about how the students from poor families pay the fee after getting admission in government colleges and told that there is widespread protest in Haryana.”

And he said that “In the ordinance, it is clearly written that if a student comes to the Haryana government job, the government will provide a loan, the government will pay EMI but employment is not guaranteed. What was the necessity to bring this ordinance?”

The State government on November 6 came out with a new policy that states candidates selected for the MBBS degree course in government medical colleges need to execute an annual bond for Rs 10 lakh minus the fee at the start of every academic year, to incentivize doctors to opt for Haryana Government medical service.

The entire bond amount can be paid by the candidate without recourse to the loan or the government will facilitate them for availing an education loan for this bond amount. The government will repay the annual instalments of the loan if the candidate obtains employment with the State government as per the policy of the government.  

The Haryana medical education and research department has revised the fee for medical courses and introduced bonds for the candidates, for which a system of loans has been put in place.
