What are the Scholarships available for MBBS?

MBBS is one of the costliest courses that is offered by many government and private colleges across India. The increased competition has created a shortage of MBBS seats in government colleges. So, many aspirants choose to study in private medical colleges for a very hefty fee structure. But the government has provided many scholarships for many deserving students and is trying to help them to pursue their courses for MBBS Colleges in Bangalore.
