Why is the media📰 full of ads for MBBS👷 seats in Indian colleges if the system is merit🏆 based❓ Yet these ads promise “direct admission”❔ Behind these questions lies a ₹12K crore💰 black market for medical seats in private colleges🏤. College managements hope to ‘sell’ as many seats as possible. In 🇮🇳, 224 of the 422 (53%) medical colleges with MBBS seats are private, many have bad facilities, no patients🏥 and fake faculty, yet the price for an MBBS seat could range from 💰₹1 cr in Bangalore colleges to 💰₹Rs 25-35 lakh in some in UP. Seats can cost up to 💰💰💰₹3 cr for an MD in radiology and dermatology. Private entrance examinations📝 have been proven to be a farce, while the students with ‘merit’ are threatened and bullied😡 to vacating their seat. Despite the ads openly flaunting the flaw, nothing has been done to stop🚫 this black market.
