Recently we saw some controversy in Tripura after management of a Medical college was taken over from Genet. People complained about very high fees.
A student may end up paying 18-20 lac rupees to get MBBS. Virtually this means no poor or lower middle class can afford to study in this college. A student from middle class will be under huge loan to study.
What is your comment on this? Are such fees justified?
