In a relief to the poor medical students, the Andhra Pradesh government has slashed the fee structure of PG medical courses in convenor, management and NRI quota making it affordable to all.
The revised fee structure will be continued for the block period of 2020-21 and 2022-23. Further, the fee structure is going to be same for minority, non-minority, private and unaided colleges. With the revised fee structure, the fees of all the PG courses have been cut to half. It is already known that the AP government has released a GO on the Supreme Court order that would benefit BC, SC, ST category students.
That is, if a seat occupied by a Meritorious Reserved candidate remains vacant, the seat would be allocated to the candidate of the same category. However, the revised fee structure did not include hostel, transport and mess charges. The government also notified that institutions can collect the annual fee in two half-yearly instalments in advance and the stipend would be paid to the PG students on a par with the students in the government PG medical and dental colleges.
Also, strict action will be taken against those colleges if found collecting the fees higher than the proposed ones. The fee collection by the colleges will be reviewed by NTR Health University. On the other hand, the AP Medical and Dental management association have stopped the admissions for medical and dental PG courses opposing the fee reduction.
The fee structure for all the private, minority, aided and unaided colleges are as follows… For a clinical degree in Category A (convener quota), a student will have to pay a fee of Rs 4.32 lakh, in Category B (management quota), the payable fee is Rs 8.64 lakh and in Category C (NRI/institutional quota), it is Rs 50 lakh. For para-clinical degree and diploma, the fee is Rs 1.35 lakh in Category A, Rs 2.7 lakh in Category B and Rs 15 lakh in Category C.
