Ma Subramanian denies further cuts to fees at Cuddalore medical college

While replying to the demand of the members of the AIADMK, Congress, PMK and CPI, Tamil Nadu Health Minister Ma Subramanian has ruled out any further reduction in fees for 1,583 students of Government Cuddalore Medical College in Chidambaram who were admitted to the institute before it was made into a government medical college (GMC) in February in 2021.

These parties were demanding that the fees for the students should be collected on par with other government medical colleges. However, the minister said in the Assembly that the fees were already reduced to the tune of INR 119 crore, any further reduction in fees would cost an additional expenditure of INR 300 crore to the State.

"The students who joined the college after it was made a government college have been paying the fees on par with other government colleges in the State," he added, as reported by Indian Express.

Fees generally not changed till course gets completed, says Ma Subramanian

"The fee fixed during the admission process was generally not increased or reduced till the end of the course. This is because if the fee is reduced after the completion of the admission process, it would be an injustice to those who chose not to pursue admission in the college due to high fees earlier,” he added, as reported by The Hindu.
