Bengaluru: Government medical college students in Karnataka may be in for a shock as the government is likely to hike the fee by 200-500%. Medical education minister DK Shivakumar told the legislative council on Tuesday that the government is mulling a fee hike.

MBBS fee could be hiked from Rs 17,000 to Rs 50,000 and post graduate fee could be increased from Rs 50,000 to Rs 3 lakh.

The government is also planning to open NRI quota seats in these colleges in the coming academic year, DK Shivakumar told the council during the ongoing winter session in Belagavi.
