Uttarakhand govt reduces fee for MBBS courses from ₹ 4 lakh to ₹ 1.45 lakh
Earlier, in all the medical colleges of the state, MBBS was conducted at an annual fee of only Rs 50,000 on bond filling. This arrangement was changed in the previous Trivendra government.
Now the path of becoming a doctor has become easy for the poor promising of Uttarakhand by studying MBBS. The government has restored the facility of doing MBBS in medical colleges of plain districts by filling bonds.
Earlier under the bond system, only medical colleges in hilly areas like Srinagar had the facility of bond education. Whereas the fee for MBBS without bond had also gone up to Rs 4 lakh, under which students taking admission in Dehradun and Haldwani Medical Colleges were facing a lot of trouble. The students were agitating continuously.
Finally, while the government has restored the bond system in all medical colleges, on the other hand the fees have also been reduced from Rs 4 lakh to Rs 1, 45 thousand. Surely this will bring great relief to the students.
The fight will increase again on the seats of All India quota When the government had reduced the MBBS fee to Rs 4 lakh, the arrival of students from outside states in the 15 percent All India quota seats in the medical colleges of the state had reduced significantly.
By converting these seats into state quota, the promising people of the state were getting the benefit. But now due to the reduction in fees again, the fight for the seats of All India quota will increase. At present, there are about 15 All India quota MBBS seats in Haldwani and Srinagar and about 27 in Doon Medical College.
MBBS path will be easy for poor meritorious In the context of seat allotment and preferred colleges through NEET UG counseling in the state, Haldwani Medical College is the first choice. After this, there is Srinagar and then Doon Medical College on the second priority. If a student has got a seat in Haldwani Medical College on the basis of good rank,
So it is mandatory to pay a fee of four lakh rupees to him. This has made MBBS education extremely difficult for promising students from poor households. If the bond system is re-implemented, then surely education will become easy for 50 thousand rupees per annum.
These are the rules for bond holders The rules are also very strict for bond holders. Given the paucity of junior and senior resident doctors in medical colleges, students pursuing MBBS from bonds have to serve in medical colleges for the first one year. After that, for two years, one has to serve in the first aid centers of inaccessible mountainous areas. After this, it is mandatory to serve in district hospitals or inaccessible hospitals for two years.
