Government to double seats in medical colleges

 Date: 16th May 2012

The decision to double the seats was taken at a meeting of the Parliamentary Consultative Committee on Health chaired by Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad

Government has planned to double the seats of undergraduate and postgraduate in various medical colleges. Besides this, Government has finally decided to conduct common entrance test for admission in undergraduate and post graduate medical courses from the next academic session.

According to sources, these decisions were taken in a meeting of Parliamentary Consultative Committee on Health chaired by Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad. It has decided to add 38,431 seats in the MBBS and 22,806 seats in the PG streams by 2021. As now, there are 41,569 MBBS seats in the 335 medical colleges across India and 22,194 PG seats.

The proposed common exam, National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for Undergraduate (NEET-UG) and Postgraduate (NEET-PG) medical courses, for admission to MBBS and MD courses all over the country will be held from 2013-14. The tests, earlier notified by the Medical Council of India (MCI), were to be first conducted from the current session but have been postponed due to lack of preparedness on its part.

The officials said that the Bachelor of Rural Healthcare Course, proposed by the government to tide over the shortage of medical professionals in rural areas, would prepare rural healthcare cadre to treat 'common ailments' and not all ailments requiring expertise. The course, which is opposed by doctors, is under the consideration of Parliamentary Standing Committee on Health and has faced opposition from the Indian Medical Association, which says the course would lead to different standards of public health delivery for urban and rural populations.
