NO NEW MBBS Seats For MP In Last Four Years.
Ujjain 19.03.2019. Barring Odisha, Gujarat and Punjab, no other state has been able to sanction new seats in their existing medial colleges. A total of 2615 MBBS seats were to be sanctioned in 36 Medical Colleges. Of these 450 seats were to be increased in Madhya Pradesh but even after four years and union government releasing more than 100 crores of rupees for upgradation of the four government owned medical Colleges of the state, not even a single seat has been increased so far revealed Dr Naresh Purohit- Executive Member of the Indian Federation of Hospital Administrators
Dr Purohit while presenting his investigative report titled,” Lack Of Quality Medical Education , A Cause Of Grave Concern” at a National Convention On Challenges in Medical Education organised by Bharati Vidyapeeth Medical College, Pune , recently said that delay in upgrading the MBBS seats in Madhya Pradesh has not only curtailed the opportunities of students aspiring to join the medical professions, but will also affect the availability of doctors in the state, five years down the line.
Dr Purohit pointed in his report that moreover only 920 new seats have been sanctioned in medical colleges across the country. Odisha (200 seats), Gujarat (170 seats) and Punjab (100 seats) have upgraded their medical colleges and increased the requisite number of MBBS seats.
“If works in MP would have been completed on time like other states, then at Ieast 1200 students would have got the opportunity of studying in the government run medical colleges in past three years. This clearly reflects the apathy of the officials of concerning department towards the students.” added Dr Purohit.
