Ukraine crisis has made us think about one of the most crucial issues that Indian students are facing nowadays. The amount of fee they have to pay for a professional degree like MBBS in India, as it costs in CRORES. The cheap education in Ukraine was the prime reason students were preferring it over Indian universities which cost them such a huge amount for their admissions. Neither the law nor the government is taking steps towards the fee hikes in the Indian universities.
The Delhi high court Justice Rekha Palli has also shown her concerns over this critical issue and allowed all the medical colleges to increase the seats in the medical courses ( undergraduate and postgraduates). She also considered the fact that because of such expensive fees and lack of several seats in courses students have to suffer a lot so the court allowed Santosh Medical College to increase the seats in undergraduate and postgraduate courses like gynaecology and orthopaedic. Some of the southern states of India like Karnataka and Maharashtra have even started the process of accepting the students who have come back from Ukraine. Few state governments are taking initiatives to help the students with their education.
By observing this kind of situation there are a lot of questions are being raised about the government policies and funding towards the education field. The medical field in focus is the base for the health facilities in the country. We are going through a pandemic, this is the correct time to review that- Are we able to build a strong base for medical care? Education is the basic right of the citizens of the country according to the Constitution of India. Is it the failure of the system or the government policies? Indian students have to suffer for better education as well as affordable education which compel them to move to other countries. The Medical Education field is vast with various opportunities. We can hope for change from the New Education Policy.
