While the ministers are indulging in tall talk about solving the self-finance muddle, an agency working out of a cubicle in front of the government Secretariat offers MBBS seats for Rs 15 lakh each, claiming to represent some of the private colleges in Kerala.
The Malabar Educational and Charitable Trust situated in a commercial complex opposite the Secretariat claims it can ‘arrange’ a few seats in the Kozhikode-based Malabar Medical College.
A trust official, who identified himself as Mr. Jacob Isaac told Deccan Chronicle he had two seats left because customers who had blocked the seats had not turned up.
Mr Isaac told this correspondent, who pretended as the cousin of a prospective candidate, that there was no issue even if the candidate had not appeared for the entrance tests conducted either by the government or the Kerala Private Medical College Management Association.
But the college would conduct its own test, which would be namesake. Besides the Rs 15 lakh donation, only government quota fee would be charged, he said. A pamphlet of the trust was also given to the DC correspondent.

In A.P., I hear they are sold at Rs. 75/- Lakhs!
