Well, it would seem so if one goes by the swiftness with which the Gujarat administration has rejected the Medical Council of India’s (MCI) proposal to hold a common entrance examination for admission to medical colleges throughout the country.

Letters have just been dashed off to the MCI and Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, saying the MBBS course aspirants from the state would be at a great disadvantage if the proposed National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) became a reality from next year. Chances are, the arguments could trigger a fresh confrontation between Gujarat’s Bharatiya Janata Party regime and the Congress-led UPA government. Continue reading

Subharti Medical College, Meerut- http://www.subharti.org/admission.aspx

Mahatma Ghandhi College and Hospital, Jaipur- http://www.mgmch.org/college.htm

Admission Process: Foreign citizens, PIO card holders, OCI (Dual Citizens), NRI students and NRI sponsored students can apply under the Foreign/NRI category. 15% of the seats in private medical colleges in India are reserved for this category.


There is no transparent admission process except in KMC (Manipal/Mangalore) and SRMC Chennai. You shortlist few medical colleges, visit India, start talks with the admissions staff directly. If one can’t visit the college personally, hire a ‘broker’ (may charge Rs. 50k to 2 lacss without you knowing about it) as college admission staff hardly talks on phone. Since most of these colleges milk NRIs, they charge higher than set fees by the states by way of donation fee in cash without receipt. Therefore, even to initiate talks with admission staff, be ready to butter the palm of junior staff. A donation amount will be set. When the ‘deal’ is done, proceed to pay the amount and you get a seat in the college. This is why it’s important to make a deal early (preferably in May/June than late July when rates are higher by about 5 lacs). Except Manipal and KIMS, most others like to take the entire course fee in advance.
