While the price of petrol and diesel has been rocketing up in the state burning a huge hole in the common man’s pocket, Maharashtra has also increased the cost of education instead of bringing down the expense. The state has now hiked medical education cost by 30 per cent.


Medical and Dental college fees in the state have been on the rise since last year. While government medical colleges have raised their teaching fee by 30 per cent, the education fee in private colleges has leapt up to ₹5-12 lakh a year. Students seeking admission through management quota will now have to spend ₹20-40 lakh.

Medical education can further get more expensive in the coming times. Medical colleges are allowed to charge four times more in the management quota than regular admissions by the state. Thus, anyone seeking admission to a medical college this year is likely to pay ₹15-48 lakh.
