Indian Medical Association (IMA) president Dr Rajan Sharma has criticised the decision by the Haryana government to raise the fees of government medical colleges in the State. The fees in public medical colleges has been raised to Rs 10 lakh per year from around Rs 50,000 per year. With this a student seeking admission in an MBBS course will have to pay Rs 40 lakh for the four-year course. “I strongly condemn the decision. Shall we do this to students from poor families who get admission in government colleges after qualifying entrance exam? There is widespread protest in Haryana,” Sharma told ANI when asked to comment on the government’s decision regarding fee hike. “In the ordinance, it is clearly written that if a student comes to 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?” he asked.
