The State government today has fixed the tuition fee for Doctor of Medicine (D.M) and M.Ch. (Master of Surgery) courses at Rs.24 lakh per annum.
The government also permitted the colleges to increase the tuition fee by 5% every year towards cost escalation and instructed that the institutions collect the fee every year and obtain bank guarantee for the remaining period of the courses. The colleges had been ordered to pay stipend to super-speciality students as per the AP State Regulations.
The GO Ms.No.149 dated September 6 stated that admissions to DM and M.Ch. courses in the State should be made through a common national counselling conducted by the Medical Admission Committee of the Director of Health Service for 2017-18. The fee fixation is in accordance with a consensual arrangement arrived at between the government and the AP Private Medical and Dental Colleges Managements’ Association.
