Two Medical Colleges charged for demanding excess fees

Around 58 students lodged a complaint with the Admission Overseeing Committee (AOC), which has issued a notice to the management of East Point Medical College.

Students also alleged that they had paid extra fees last year, but the facilities offered by the college were not of good quality.

This is not the only college that has come under the scanner.

Students of the Rajarajeswari Medical College and Hospital have also approached the Admission Overseeing Committee alleging that they were asked to pay an additional 1.48 lakh to the college. 

The ACO has orderded both the colleges to refund the excees fees collected.
