A meeting of admission and fee regulatory committee Madhya Pradesh(AFRC) is scheduled for first week of October where increase mbbs fees could be doubled, according to highly placed sources. “The current fee is being calculated as after a verbal statement by the directorate of medical education (DME) pegging cost incurred on a MBBS course by colleges at around Rs 5 lakh. The expenditure is more than double that amount,” said a consultant for private medical college. The formula for calculation of fee for private medical college is roughly by adding 30% to the expenditure cost on a MBBS seat in a government medical college.
