Karnatkas medical college fees issue

The KLE Jagadguru Gangadhar Mahaswamigalu Mooru Savirmath Medical College of Karnataka, has landed itself in legal trouble, as they college is reportedly charging half of management quota fees, for government seats as well.

30 MBBS students took this action as they were asked to pay nearly 6.3 lakh INR, instead of the original 1.4 lakh INR which is supposed to be the actual fee for government quota seats. They took this complain to the medical education department of the State.

The department looked into the issue but as per claims made by the college, apparently an agreement was made between the government and the college for keeping this as the regular fee. Hence they condemned reduction of college fees.

The website was also accused of changing details on the website, as earlier the fee was showcased at 1.3 lakh and was changed into 3.3 lakh soon after the seating allotment results were announced. Many students believed that this extra fee was a mandatory payment for all medical courses but others raised questions on the same. Many students spoke against this and called it an unfair practice.

The college in its agreement with the government stated that due to them taking more capacity of MBBS seats, the government sanctioned them to collect more fees, under the government quota as well. While the private quota pays a fee of nearly 10 Lakh INR, 50 percent fee, which is close to 5 lakh is what is to be paid by government quota seat candidates. It is not inclusive of other permissible fees.

Keeping this in mind, the Karnataka Medical Education Authority gave students a grace period to change college choices, if they want. However, the process will be time consuming, said a notification.

    Client Testimonial

    MBBS Abroad is a big decision and your success depends upon the honesty of your consultant. It is a long process starting from choosing the right college to reaching there at college door step and finally studying there for next 5-6 years. You are in a new country without many old friends. We were sure to approach a consultant who is based out of our district only so that not only during admission but for next 6 years, we can have smooth interactions. So, we approached GKWorks as they have a branch in Saharanpur. As we anticipated, there are lot of things to be done during admission process that goes for 3-4 months. At every step, it was useful for us to have our consultant who was only 20 minutes’ drive from our home. We were able to discuss everything face to face any day and thus were able to have easy process.
