Government to focus on Setting Up of Medical Colleges

To meet the shortfall of human resources/facilities in health sector, a Centrally Sponsored Scheme for establishment of New Medical Colleges by upgrading district/referral hospitals has been introduced with focus on underserved areas of the country. 58 districts under the scheme in 20 States/UTs have been identified.

As per the laid down procedure, Detailed Project Reports (DPRs) submitted by the State/UTs are required to be evaluated by a Technical Evaluation Committee (TEC) before they are approved by the Empowered Committee (EC). Implementation is to be carried out by the respective States/UTs.

Details regarding number of government and private medical colleges established during the last three years including current year with intake capacity of MBBS seats are given at below:-
