Students of a private medical college here have hit the streets to protest against exorbitant hike in the annual fees by the college administration.
Holding placards, students of SGRR medical college staged a dharna here in protest against the college administration's decision to effect a manifold hike in the annual fees.
Besides SGRR Medical college, Himalayan Medical college and Subharti Medical college have hiked their annual fees for a medical course from Rs 8 lakh to Rs 19 lakh.
