Additional Medical Seats 
New Delhi, December 18, 2017: The Ministry permitted 2990 additional PG seats in Clinical subjects/Courses in Government Medical Colleges for the year 2017-18 including 153 seats in Andhra Pradesh as onetime measure consequent to amendment to MCI Postgraduate Medical Education Regulations, 2000 revising Teacher Student ratio in respect of Clinical subjects at Public Funded Government Medical Colleges.

As per the Provisions of Indian Medical Council (IMC) Act 1956 and Regulations made thereunder, permission for establishment of a Medical College is granted initially for a period of one year. The permitted medical colleges have to get yearly renewal permission till the first batch of students appear in final year examination and the course is recognized. For this purpose the MCI conducts yearly inspection of the colleges and makes its recommendation to the Central Government. Colleges found deficient in terms of faculty, residents, clinical material and other facilities for proper functioning of medical college and for offering minimum standard of medical education are not given renewal permission/recognition. 54 Medical Colleges were not granted renewal permission for the year 2017-18.
