NEET Bulletin (New Delhi, Desk): Students who got graduated in MBBS and want to pursue their PG in Telangana are very shocked about the fee hike. The Telangana government announced the hike in fee by 100% for many clinical courses. There has been a hike the total fee for three years is up to ₹ 30 lakh for clinical courses.
The recent statement passed by Vice-Chancellor of Kaloji Narayana Rao University of Health Sciences (KRUHS) B. Karunakar Reddy said that fee hike is done by considering the audited income and expenditure statements. It is provided by the medical colleges on the basis of annual expenditure.
The problem started when an order was issued by Telangana Health and Family Welfare Department. It expressed that the fee under convenor seats for Clinical courses at private medical colleges would vary between ₹ 7 lakh to ₹ 7.75 lakh per annum. Last year the fee was only 3.5 Lakh per annum and now it’s almost 100% hike.
The shocking thing is the fee hike is approved by the recommendation of TAFRC which is not believable
The sad thing is people who are from lower and middle-class families will not be able to afford this fee hike.
The president of TJUDA has requested authorities to re-evaluate the monetary data submitted by the Medical Colleges to TAFRC. He requested to look into the fee hike matter again.
Few medical students have complained that the authorities did not send any prior information to them about the fee hike. All the students were prepared for the fee structure of ₹ 3.5 lakh. It is not possible for any one of them to manage this fee hike suddenly.
If the students would not be able to manage the fee hike they might end up losing a year It would create an year loss to them.
