Bengaluru:  The Department of Medical Education agreed to a 10 per cent fee increase for courses required to apply for government quota seats at private colleges, however, the All India Democratic Students’ Organisation (AIDSO) has requested that the government not implement the hike.

The hike will apply to medical and dental courses for undergraduate courses. They said that the government’s decision would favour private colleges and lead to the privatisation of education, which would restrict students’ access to higher education, particularly those from rural areas.

This year’s sharp decline in enrollment at government degree colleges reflects the issue and emphasises the reality. Increased costs will make students who want to study medicine less likely to continue their degree, informed state secretary Ajay Kamath. The department or Health Minister Dr. K. Sudhakar have not yet officially announced the fee hike.
