MP: Fresh woes for medical aspirants as panel wants fees by Friday


A day after the Supreme Court ordered status quo for seat allotment for candidates from Madhya Pradesh, the students were hit with a new setback — the Association of Private Dental and Medical Colleges (APDMC) ruled that students have to submit fees by Friday.
The ruling meant that with the schedule and rules for admission to medical colleges undergoing several changes in the past 10 days, candidates got only one day to make arrangements for the money.
“Due to the confusion, we were not sure whether I would get admission or not and what college I would be allotted to. There is a difference of up to Rs 2 lakh in the fees of different colleges, and college representatives are saying that they could charge a further Rs 2-3 lakh as caution money,” a student, whose father went to arrange for the money, said.
“If I fail to submit the money, I won’t get admission. I don’t have enough time to get a loan in such a short span of time. My parents are making arrangements for the money,” a candidate from Burhanpur said.
Many candidates have already given up their allotted seats.
Others were submitting cheques with an application stating that their loan process would take a few days to complete, asking the college authorities to submit the cheque after some days.
However, APDMC secretary JN Chauksey said that the colleges will not entertain such applications.
“We are already predicting a loss because of poor admissions in private medical colleges… If the candidates fail to submit money till October 7, they will not be admitted,” he said.
However, the directorate of medical education maintained that the admission process went smoothly.
“The process was held smoothly on Thursday. Some representatives of private medical colleges were trying to misguide candidates by informing them of high fees structures but I have made it clear to all to contact only nodal officers of their colleges,” GS Patel, director of the directorate of medical education, said.
