NMC’s Letter to deemed universities: ‘Match fee for 50% medical seats with govt colleges’ | Education News,The Indian Express

The Prime Minister in March had announced that the fee for half the sanctioned seats in private medical colleges will be reduced to match the fee in government colleges.

The National Medical Commission (NMC) has directed all deemed universities to comply with the new guidelines on reducing fee for half of the total approved seats in private medical colleges from the current session. The medical education regulator wrote a letter to this effect to all deemed universities on July 20, The Indian Express has learnt.

The Prime Minister in March had announced that the fee for half the sanctioned seats in private medical colleges will be reduced to match the fee in government colleges. This will essentially mean that the government rate will be applicable on 75% of the 92,000 MBBS seats that will be offered for the 2022-23 session.

“The fee regulation guidelines are mandatory as per NMC Act-2019 and will be applicable for students who will be admitted through NEET-UG 2022 and NEET-PG 2022,” reads the NMC communication to the deemed universities.

With admissions for the session only months away, the private colleges that The Indian Express spoke to said there is no clarity on how the decision should be implemented and that the new guidelines, in all likelihood, will be challenged by private universities in the court.

The universities claim that in the absence of any subsidy, the move will just make the remaining half of the private seats unaffordable.
