ABVP members stage dharna against increase in medical, dental fees

Members of the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) district unit took out a procession and staged a dharna at Vanaki Obavva Circle here on Saturday to protest against the increase in fees of medical and dental courses for the 2018-19. The agitators alleged that the fees structure for medical and dental courses for the last academic year was Rs. 16,500 and in the current academic year the government increased it to Rs. 50,000.

“The private medical colleges have increased 25% of fees for government allotted seats. The move will have a severe impact on the poor and middle class students and there are chances that these students may not opt for the courses owing to sudden increase in fee structure,” they said.
