Why is Kazakhstan becoming so popular among Indian medical students?

Without a doubt, Kazakhstan has become a lifeline for Indian medical students who cannot get into government colleges through the NEET Marks and do not have the financial means to enrol in private medical colleges with large capitation fees.

Every year, around 17 lakh medical students take the NEET-UG entrance exam, competing for  less than 1 lakhs Medical seats .
Imagine 8 lakh candidates qualify  in NEET exam and all seats are given to the top ranker who scored above 650 .  The NEET-UG 2022 cut off was 138 for general and 108 for reserved categories, however they would not be able to enrol in government colleges.

Some of the best students are admitted to any government medical college in India (approx 50,000 seats are in government colleges and the rest 50,000 are in private medical colleges).
Some students who can afford to pay high tuition fees and donations (ranging from 70 lakh to 1 crore) join in private universities.
