Goa hikes bond amount for MBBS students to Rs 10 lakh but CM says no local student to be denied admission
By Indiatoday 03-Jul-2019
The BJP-led state government has hiked the bond amount to be paid at the time of admission at the Goa Medical College and Hospital from Rs 5 lakh to Rs 10 lakh, which has evoked sharp reactions from the Congress and the GFP, an ally of the BJP.
The Congress threatened to launch a protest if the government fails to roll back the increased bond amount, saying parents from economically weak backgrounds cannot meet the criterion.
Sawant said the government was trying to find out a solution to help parents furnish the bond.
"But no Goan student would be denied admission because he is not able to furnish the bond. We are working out various options to help parents fulfill the criterion," the chief minister said.
Refusing to roll back the hike, the CM said higher amounts are being charged by neighbouring states for the same courses.
