In India, every year countless aspirants appear for various engineering and medical entrance tests to become engineers or doctors. But not all are able to get admitted to good quality engineering or medical colleges. Although engineering seats have increased considerably over the years, this is not the case with MBBS due to following facts:
- Approximately 50,000 MBBS seats available all over in India whereas every year around 10 lakh students appear in various All India and state level entrance tests.
- This means, annually only 5% of the students seeking to become a doctor will attain their ambition.
- There are a total of 335 medical colleges in India out of which 180 (approx.) are private institutions and 155 (approx.) are government-run institutes.
- Most of the private institutes have a capitation fee ranging from 15 to 20 lakhs with an annual fee of 4 to 5 lakhs. For any middle-class family, even if the student secures a seat through entrance tests, MBBS still remains a forbidden fruit due to the exorbitant fee structure of the private institutes.
