17 new medical colleges added in the country in 2014-15


According to Shripad Yesso Naik, minister of state for health and family welfare, a total of 2373 undergraduate medical (MBBS) seats and 1184 postgraduate medical seats have been added in the country in 2014-15 as compared to the previous academic year. The number of medical colleges in the same period increased by 17 to 404 in the current academic year from 387 in the year 2013-14.

In a written reply in the Lok Sabha on Friday, Naik said, “As per the provisions of the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956 and regulations framed thereunder, there is provision of annual inspections of all medical colleges with regard to the availability of the infrastructure required for conduct of various medical courses. In case of deficiencies in infrastructure found by the MCI and upon failure of the concerned institution to comply with the deficiencies within the specific period, the MCI makes recommendation to the government against renewal of seats/batch/course resulting in decrease in number of seats in the institution. In some case the institution itself is closed entirely due to grave irregularities as per the provisions of IMC Act, 1956 and regulations framed thereunder.”

“AIIMS, New Delhi is providing medical services to 28 villages through Comprehensive Rural Health Services Project (CRHSP), Ballabhgarh. In addition, the institute accepts requests for organizations of medical camps in remote and rural areas of Leh and Ladakh. Further, the institute is actively engaged in providing consultation through tele-education and tele-medicine to remote areas of Himachal Pradesh. The Institute has also taken initiative to promulgate Rural Trauma Team Development course to train human resource in saving lives of injured victims by simple basis life support techniques and transfer the patient to closest appropriate facility for definitive care,” the minister added.
