Dr Ajay Goenka, CMD of Chirayu medical college and President of APDMC informed Free Press that his college is conducting the counselling process. The students have been told that they will have to pay the hiked fees because the college has filed the appeal in the AFRC about the fees regulation.
Presently the AFRC has fixed the fees of the college at Rs 5 lakh per year. He also added that the SC,ST and OBC students have been told to pay the fee amount in two installments and they will ask the government to pay the amount in advance.
He alleged that the state government was not making any effort to redress many issues related to fees and reservation quota.
He said that 15 percent seats are reserved for the NRIs. Under the provisions, the students of state domicile belonging to SC/ST and OBC categories living in other countries have to be given admission. He alleged that the provision was unrealistic as no student is coming forward to get admission under the category.
He also raised the issue that the state government had imposed the condition that after completing the course, the students will have to serve in the rural area. The students of other state are hesitating to get admission in private college, because there is no such condition in any other state.
