There are a number of private universities and colleges that are not state-funded and here the students will have to pay fees.
If you wish to access the free/low-cost programs that are offered by government funded universities you have to learn the local language. After all, at the end of the program the student would like to work in Germany. How will a person be able to work in Germany without knowing the local language? Please keep in mind that the German government will be very happy to see more and more young, educated and talented people joining their aging workforce.

German Medical Education Popularity In India
Since the medical programs are taught in German, students prefer other destination where the medium of instructions is supposed to be in English. But what is the use of teaching medicine in Russia in English medium when all the patients that come to the hospital do not speak the English language. How can you, as an English speaking doctor interact with Russian speaking patients? It does not make any sense. In Germany, you have to know the German language in order to be able to practice medicine in Germany or other parts of Europe where German language is spoken. Besides you have to clear the MCI Screening Test in order to be able to practice medicine in India.
