Private medical colleges in three states selling seats for crores


New Delhi: In clear violation of the Supreme Court of India’s orders and audacious contempt of law, five reputed colleges have been caught in the middle of the rot in the country’s medical education system. A CNN-IBN sting operation covering three states has exposed how private medical and dental colleges are illegally selling post graduate seats to the highest bidders.

Results for the All India Common Entrance test are still not out but post graduate medical seats for the academic year 2013-2014 have already been sold off. A Supreme Court order prohibits medical colleges to reveal results of the independent entrance tests that they conduct.

Santosh Medical College in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh and People’s Medical College in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh have been caught on camera asking for obscene amounts of money for seats. Post graduate seats are sold off for crores of rupees while legitimate and qualifying students are paid lakhs for vacating them for “resale”. Colleges are also hiring doctors to fudge medical inspections.

“If I leave the seat, I will get Rs 20-25 lakh for leaving the seat of the private medical college so later they can sell the seat to someone else. MCI and government don’t have proper system to check that a particular student should not take admission in more than one college at a time,” a student said on the condition of anonymity.
