    Medical studies are dream for so many students but not all these dreams turn into reality owing to the less number of medical colleges and the fees which is a little too much.Kasturba medical college comes as a relief.Though this college is private ,still the fees is quite reasonable and its plan to expand will make it slightly easy for all medical aspirants.
