This policy was reviewed after 1991, when it was recognised that a large number of posts of doctors were lying vacant in many places especially in rural areas and there was tremendous pressure for gaining admission into medical colleges. As a result, new colleges were getting established even without basic requirements of infrastructure, equipment and faculty.

The subvention shall be made and continued until the student complete the course or for a period of five years whichever is earlier. The subvention amount by the Central Government is sent directly to the concerned college, towards fee, every year, commencing with academic year The Hon'ble Supreme Court in a judgment dated in the TMA Pai Foundation case has allowed freedom to fix a reasonable fee to the private unaided institutions.
