More MBBS, PG seats soon

Medical Council of India eases norms thus helping in the intake
‘Up to government, NTR University of Health Sciences to hasten the process'
HYDERABAD: There are bright chances of an increase in the number of medical seats, even post graduate seats in government colleges from the next academic year at least.

Authorities have confirmed that efforts are on to review the existing situation of student to teacher ratio at government medical colleges to add more MBBS seats.

“We are aiming for the next academic year and hopefully we would be able to increase the existing intake of MBBS seats at government hospitals. We are reviewing the professors to student ratio and infrastructure facilities at government medical colleges,” says Principal Secretary (Health), Dr. P. V. Ramesh.

Confident officials

The reason for the confidence on the part of Health officials is due to a recent decision of Medical Council of India (MCI) to ease the norms that will help increase intake.

“MCI has given a blanket approval to all government hospitals, with over 1,100 beds, to increase their intake by 50 seats based on the existing infrastructure at medical colleges. We need not even ask MCI to conduct inspections for the additional 50 seats. It's up to the government and NTR University of Health Sciences to hasten the process,” a top official of the Osmania General Hospital said.

Hospitals like Gandhi Medical College, Osmania Medical College and other larger Government Hospitals at Warangal and Visakhapatnam have over 1,000 bed capacity and they can increase the intake.

Officials said that government medical colleges would be able to increase their seats by 20 and even 50 per cent.


“We are very well aware of these developments and decisions of theMedical Council of India. Eventually, the number of seats at PG and UG seats will increase,” says Director of Medical Education (DME), Dr. T. Ravi Raju.

Apart from undergraduate seats, PG seats could also swell because the student to teacher ratio has changed.

“Earlier one professor was allotted only one PG student. Now, one professor is allowed to take two post graduate students. This will increase PG seats,” says senior Nephrologist, Gandhi Hospital, Dr. Pradeep Deshpande.
