Govinda KC opposes unscientific hike

KATHMANDU:  Issuing a press release on Sunday, Govinda KC, senior orthopaedic surgeon, who recently retired from Tribhuvan University Teaching Hospital (TUTH) after serving for 26 years, said he had serious objections to the the Medical Education Commission, for increasing fees for MBBS and BDS programmes.

He said the fees should not be increased without empirical studies.

“The commission should take decisions giving priority to students and guardians, rather than considering the benefits of medical college owners,” KC said.
