Admission To Private Medical Colleges In India.

Admission to private medical colleges in India is really not a cheap and easy option. Medical Council of India offers a large list of around 230+ private medical colleges / deemed universities. Till 2015, the agents from across the country used to call the students and parents for this purpose. The agents used to promise guaranteed admission to MBBS in private medical colleges. Either the system was manipulated or agents cheated people. You would wonder where they came to know about your aspirations to become a doctor!


Changing Scenario For Admission To Private Medical Colleges - 2015 to 2018

Admission To Private Medical Colleges In India 2015:

The private medical colleges used to charge capitation fees ranging from Rs. 30 to Rs. 60 Lacs per medical seat till 2015. The private colleges were run by the trusts and it is believed that most of these colleges in India were managed by the politicians. Hence, the political will to remove the heavy capitation fee for private colleges was lacking. This way, the merit was not important. Money power was a decisive factor for the successful admission to private medical colleges. The students and parents were approached by unprofessional agents and mediators over the phone. They fraudulently posed as the official representatives of these medical colleges. Many of the students were cheated and paid the capitation fees for the medical seat.

However, in 2016, the entire system took a turn under the new Prime Minister of India. The government of India proposed new system through MCI (Medical Council of India). All the admissions for the private medical colleges were on the basis of the NEET Exam merit. This changed the whole system and the MBBS admission scenario in India! So what is your alternative?

Final System Adapted For Admission To Private Medical Colleges In 2024:

The government introduced a new system very late in April, 2016. For those who already registered for the original NEET exam conducted in the month of May, 2016 gave state level as well as NEET exam. However, the students were not sure which one would be finally accepted. The case was fought between the government of India and the private medical colleges in a big way right at the supreme court, The fate of around 6.50 Lac students was hanging without any final decision for almost 5 months. Private colleges fought to have the right to take entrance exams.

The government of India stuck to its decision to follow the resolve to wipe out capitation fees system. They announced one more chance for the students. The NEET 2 exam was taken in July, 2016 for the students who wished to take it. Accordingly, if the students filled their preferential forms for the colleges after NEET 1 were not eligible for the NEET 2. Also, those who filed NEET 2 forms were conveyed that NEET 1 scores would not be counted. What did the students do in such a mess? They opted for MBBS abroad as a viable option in a MCI approved university abroad.

How The Capitation Fees For Private Medical Seat Was Removed In 2024.

None of the private medical college or deemed universities were allowed to conduct their own entrance test in 2024. The supreme court also accepted the government suggestion. The private colleges lost their complete control and manipulations over admission process. The manipulation was done all these years due to the control of the Entrance Test remained with the private medical colleges in India. However, from 2016, these private colleges will have to accept the students through NEET. All the medical seats in private colleges admission were allotted (Except NRI Quota seats) through a Nationwide Entrance Test (NEET-2). This was originally proposed by the government to the Supreme court of India and finally made as a rule. NEET Eligibility was then reduced to only 145 Marks for open category and 118 for reserved category.

By 2018, the system is fully established with NEET 2018 as the exam to allocate the around 64,000 medical seats throughout India.

Accordingly, to continue their existing revenues per medical seats, the private colleges have started jacking up the annual fees. For NEET 2018, there is absolutely no need to approach any agents. If you are on merit, no one can stop your admission to private medical college or a deemed university.

Effects On Cost Of Private Medical Colleges In India 2016.

The students got their first shock when they saw private medical colleges increased their fees from Rs. 7 - 8 Lacs to an average of Rs. 15 Lacs per year. This was done abruptly after NEET 2023results. The private medical colleges which charged annual fees in the range of Rs. 8 to Rs. 10 Lacs in 2015 are now expected to charge on average Rs. 12-15 Lacs/year from 2016. This will make the total cost to study MBBS in private medical college in India to around Rs. 70 Lacs even for the merit students through NEET-2. This cost is much higher than the cost to study MBBS in USA right up to PG! It is funny that even now, most of the Indian parents make the mistake of putting their child to a private medical college as their first choice

  • The admission letters can be issued only after the counseling sessions are completed. Accordingly, the issue remains unconfirmed until August every year, irrespective of when you book the private medical seat. ACCORDINGLY, DO NOT GIVE ANY MONEY TO ANY AGENT IN ADVANCE.
  • In the past, there have been many cases where the agents have taken the money from the parents by promising the admission to private medical colleges and ultimately vanished. Every year, the advertisements are published in leading newspapers from Feb to July. Please ignore them! In 2016, these bogus advertisements have reduced. There is no way that an agent can manipulate NEET exam results. So the agent system is absolutely over.
  • The Education consultant would put you in a direct contact with the management of the private medical college or MBBS deemed university for admission to impress you. However, he can be in hand in glove with the medical college. So contacts and relationships would not be of any use. NEET results would matter.
  • No agents or education consultants in India is authorized by the college or a deemed university to take fees/donation / collect capitation fees on their behalf. Accordingly, there is absolutely no need to pay any advance to any agent for your Admission to private medical colleges.

  • The roadmap to Medical PG is even worse than the MBBS. The donation amounts are almost 2 to 4 times that of MBBS stage in India. Additionally, One must understand that only 10% of the students becoming a doctor are able to do their MD / MS programs. Naturally, the students studying in the government medical colleges or admitted through merit in private medical colleges in India are much better placed to get the government seats at MD / MS level. Accordingly, with the falling value of MBBS in India and necessity to become an MD / MS, it would be completely unviable for you to pay very high at MBBS stage. So think from the entire road map view and not only at MBBS stage.
