Disparity in student fees at KANNUR Govt medical college

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


Recently government took control of erstwhile pariyaram medical college and renamed as Kannur Govt medical college. From 2019 academic year it has provided 15 % All India Quota and the fees for new batch will be purely government fees. This has created a grave injustice for students who are already studying their. From last two batches students have been admitted on merit. Most of the students who got admissions had foregone their seats at nearest self finance college and preferred far away college as every one believed that after government takeover they have to pay only government fees.

    Presently fee structure at this medical college is having grave anomalies nowhere found in any other medical college in India. Students studying in different years are paying different fees. Management quota students got their fees reduced. First year students are burdened with heavy fees. 

      This college has tremendous scope as north Kerala does not has a good medical college. All Mangalore hospitals are full of patients belonging to north Kerala. Since land is available it can be converted into best medical college not just in north Kerala but also in entire South India. Even for many people of Karnataka Coorg district this hospital is nearest. 

     Presently fees for patients have been removed. If the entire fees for medical students are made uniform then also the burden to government will be minimal. Presently most of the categories viz SC, ST , OEC etc have to pay fees almost at par with government fees. Numerous agitations have taken place for fees abnormalities which had a media coverage and brings disrepute for such an esteemed Medical college.

Sir With folded hands we humbly seek your personal intervention and help us in making this medical college a model and a premier medical college in South India.
