Also, when other states are prioritising their own residents, Karnataka alone is encouraging all states to participate and acquire a seat in their state. Although this is nation friendly, the state's people feel despondent about this decision of not prioritising their own needs.

Why are outstation candidates interested in MBBS admissions in Karnataka?

One of the reasons why Karnataka is a good place to study MBBS is because of the less fees for medical courses in comparison with other states.

"The fees in Karnataka's private medical colleges is around Rs 6,00,000, while institutions in other states charge approximately Rs 12,00,000. When the government is constantly citing a shortage of doctors, especially in rural areas, it should make it easier for local students to study here," said Karunakar Reddy, parent of an aspiring NEET candidate.
