The six new All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), being established by the Ministry, government of India, under the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojna, will admit students for its MBBS course on a higher fee as compared to AIIMS, Delhi. The ministry has already finalised the fee structure for the six new centres to be set up at Bhopal, Patna, Jodhpur, Rishikesh, Raipur and Bhubaneswar, respectively.
Apart from registration fees and caution money, fees across other heads like tuition fees, hostel fees, etc, have been increased. While the annual fee in AIIMS, Delhi is 970, students studying at the new AIIMS will have to shell out 4,228 for the same. According to Rani Kumar, dean, AIIMS, Delhi, the increase in the fees at all the new institutes is a reasonable increase. She says, AIIMS, Delhi is offering education to students since the last 56 years without having increased a single rupee. Ideally, the administration should have reviewed the fees every five years, which has not happened. Now, if the fee is suddenly increased at AIIMS, Delhi, there will be opposition from students. Hence, while the fee structure here remains the same, fees in the new institutes are higher. The academic session at these centres will begin from August. All admission-related work has been completed at the new centres and admission forms will be available till April 2. The entrance examination will be conducted by AIIMS, Delhi at 17 centres across the country on June 2. Candidates who want to be considered for admission to any of these six institutions apart from AIIMS, Delhi should indicate their preference in the application itself.
