Deemed Universities & private Colleges in India offering MBBS & BDS courses are worried as more than 50% & 84% of the seats are lying vacant after the 3rd round of counseling of NEET 2017.
The final round to fill seats, popularly known as mop up round is on 28th August, 2017 and admission procedures have to be completed by 31st August, 2017 as per the Supreme Court order.
This year admissions are to be done only through centralized counseling and Private Medical Colleges and deemed Universities are not allowed to give admission directly.
Fees is these colleges is extremely high and as a result many medical students are going to study MBBS abroad as the fees there is affordable. One can complete MBBS in Kyrgyzstan for around Rs. 16 lacs in 6 years including all expenses whereas fees in Indian Private Medical Colleges is in the range of Rs. 8-15 lacs per year.
