Health Ministry to allow hike in MBBS seats

The Health Ministry has proposed to increase MBBS seats in the country by allowing government and recognised private medical colleges to do so as a one-time measure.

As per a proposal cleared by health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, all medical colleges having 10 years or more of standing will be allowed to increase 50 seats as a one-time measure.
Azad also held a review meeting of officials in this regard on Monday and directed early implementation of the scheme.

Sources said while those medical colleges with 50 seats will be allowed to add another 50, those with 100 seats will henceforth have 150 seats.
