Admission to Private Medical Colleges In India:
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.
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.
