The Union Health Minister, Ghulam Nabi Azad was seen justifying high fees being charged by private medical colleges for medical education. According to him, the colleges can only make up to 15 – 20 crores a year as against Rs.350 crores set up cost for a medical college and annual recurring cost of around 40 – 45 crores.

Since two years when the rules were amended, 46 new medical colleges have came up in the country and seats in the MBBS and importantly in the PG courses have considerably increased, which could not have been even close to half if only the government medical colleges were to exist, according to the Minister. India still needs a lot to be done in the sector of medical education to balance the proportion of doctors against the high population of the country, and it is because of this unbalance, the institutions like AIIMS (All India Institutes of Medical Sciences), which are mainly set up for research work, are busy in handling the patients instead.
