Thiruvananthapuram: The annual fee for clinical PG degree courses in self-financing medical colleges for the year 2017-18 and 2018-19 has been fixed at Rs 14 lakh. This was announced by the fee regulatory commission headed by R. Rajendra Babu on Thursday. For non-clinical PG degrees, the fee will be Rs 8.5 lakh. The annual fee for the PG diploma (clinical) courses will be Rs 10.5 lakh. Fee for the super specialty courses would be Rs 18.5 lakh.

The fee for the NRI quota has been fixed at Rs 35 lakh. College managements have been asked to refund any excess fee collected. The decision was taken based on the hearing with the medical colleges, the documents submitted by the medical colleges and the subsequent deliberations. All the Medical Colleges, except KMCT Medical College and Kannur Medical College, appeared before the Commission for hearing.

 

The Commission rejected these colleges' demand for an extension of time for appearing as the tuition fee has to be regulated within a short span of time. During the hearing, most medical colleges were in favour of a uniform tuition fee for the PG Courses, as students tend to shift from one college to another to take advantage of the fee structure prevailing in other colleges.
