Parents decry Rs50,000 rise in Dow University of Health Sciences fees
Karachi:Parents of medicos, studying under the self-finance scheme at Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS) have raised a voice over the sharp increase in the fee structure of MBBS and BDS courses.
Posting their concern to the media, the parents believed that the sudden increase of Rs50,000 in both the courses had led to unrest amongst the students as well as parents, who would now have to cut other expenses to meet the risen cost. For MBBS course, the fee has increased from Rs250,000 to Rs300,000 whereas for BDS it has been increased from Rs300,000 to Rs350,000. “This increase has overburdened the parents, especially those who also have children studying in professional colleges,” they maintained in a press release.
“We the parents of students enrolled under self-finance scheme (local) request the Vice-Chancellor of the DUHS, Dr Masood Hameed, to review the increased fee structure of self-financed MBBS and BDS,” the parents added. The parents argued that the inevitability of increased fee could be applied to the incoming students as per the new agreement.THE NEWS
