MBBS Student Works in the Farm to Pay College Fees

Sep 16, 2018

It becomes a nightmare for poor families to fund their children medical studies which ran into lakhs every year. One of such stories is making rounds with P Kanimozhi's family.

Kanimozhi is an MBBS student of 2014 batch and secured a seat under the Government quota at the Dhanalakshmi Srinivasan Medical College at Siruvachur located at Perambalur. Her annual fee for studies was around 5 lakhs, of which 2.8 to 3 lakhs was provided through the scholarship program for the schedule caste by the government and rest 2.2 lakh, her family was paying. But, the government is giving scholarship only for 4 years and 6 months.

Her family has mortgaged and sold every little possession they had to fund her education. Now, she works in an agricultural field at a meagre Rs 150 a day. She works in the farms along with her Mother to remove weeds and to help the family meet their daily expenses.

Her Father, P Pichaimani, is a farmer in Perambalur. He further said that they had sold his wife jewelry and mortgaged farmland to pay Rs 8, 80, 000 fees for her studies. Now, they have nothing left to sell or mortgage to pay her pending fees.

Earlier, he had worked in Dubai as a daily wager for a few years but returned home after meeting with an accident. He has only one dream to see her daughter finish her MBBS course.

According to the college sources, the due date for Kanimozhi to pay her pending fees was in February. They knew her financial struggles and didn't compel her to pay fees nor prevented her to attend regular classes. They further stated that she should have approached and brought the issue to the Department earlier.
