Post Donít demand bank guarantee for MBBS admissions: MMMC told

The HP Private Educational Institutions Regulatory Commission (HPPEIRC) has directed Maharshi Markendeshwar Medical College (MMMC), Kumarhatti (Solan), not to demand bank guarantee from the students seeking admissions to the MBBS course under the state quota. It has taken serious note of complaints that the college is demanding a bank guarantee of Rs 20-lakh from the students, along with annual fee of Rs 5 lakh.
In a letter addressed to the Registrar of the MMMC, the Secretary to the the commission said, ďYou are directed to adhere to admission norms and the fee structure approved by the government and not to insist students on furnishing bank guarantee and submit compliance report in this regard by September 7.Ē The action came on the report of the Director, Medical Education and Research (DME), who brought the matter to notice of the commission after the parents of some students brought it to her notice. The parents had complained that the college authorities were insisting on furnishing bank guarantee immediately along with the annual fee, which was not possible at such a short notice.
The DME had sent a list of 103 candidates to be admitted under the state quota after Centrallised counselling but the college admitted only 82 students and urged the DME to allow the MMU to hold separate entrance test to fill the vacant posts on the pattern of permission given to private dental colleges.
The MCI has sanctioned 150 seats for the third batch of MBBS in the lone private college which included 50 per cent seats to be filled under the state quota and remaining 50 per cent in the management quota but the college filled 33 seats in excess in the management quota last year which were added to the state quota this year and consequently the management quota was reduced to 42.Further, the parents rue that the government has fixed Rs 5-lakh fee per annum for seats under the state quota, to be paid in one instalment which is difficult for an average income group family to afford.
ďWe are forced to leave the seat or raise education loan, which takes time and the government should impress upon the college to charge the fee in two or three instalments and at the same time the fee structure should be reviewed and be reduced drastically for the state quota seatsĒ, said another parent whose son could not get the admission as he was not aware of the condition of bank guarantee.
