    ALL MOST ALL MEDICAL COLLEGES ACROSS THE COUNTRY NEITHER THEY ARE INSTITUTIONS NOR RESEARCH CENTRES. OUT OF 500 MEDICAL COLLEGES HARDLY 15 TO 20 OF THEM CAN BE CALLED AS INSTITUTIONS & RESEARCH CENTRES. REST OF THEM ARE NOTHING BUT GLORIFIED PRIMARY HEALTH CENTRES, TALUK & DISTRICT HOSPITALS ……. WITH OUT REQUIRED INFRASTRUCTURE, EQUIPMENTS, DEVICES, DISCIPLINE, MAN POWER STARTING FROM PEON TO PRINCIPAL. DOOR KEEPER TO DEAN/ DIRECTOR. DOCUMENTATION OF THE DATA SEEMS TO BE A SIN , WRITING SILLY, SHABBY, SENSELESS CASE PAPERS SAID TO BE PERFECT ACT . RUNNING AWAY SOON AFTER THE ATTENDENCE TO THEIR PRIVATE PRACTICE SEEMS TO THEIR / ONE\’S BIRTH RIGHT, TO PLEASE THE STUPID STUDENTS BY GIVING REQUIRED PERCENT OF ATTENDENCE AND ASSESSMENT MARKS BEST WAY . SUPPORTING UNLAWFUL ACTIVITES OF THE SO CALLED HIGHER-UPS ( what is high about , these B A passed Babus the BUEROCRATES & SELF DECLARED V C & CHANCELLORS) IS ORDER OF DAY. COMING TO TREATING THE PATIENTS – IT GOES AS PER THE WHIMS AND FANCIES OF THE HOUSE SURGEOBS , RESIDENTS , BECAUSE IT HARD OR UNLIKELY TO REAL ONE\’S.

  2. ONLY NO INCREASED BUT WHAT ABOUT QUALITY. GOVT AS WELL AS PVT COLLEGES ARE NOT HAVING ADEQUATE INFRASTRUCTURE , FACULTY IN ADDITION PVT COLLEGES HAVE NOT ADEQUATE PATIENTS, THEY R REMOVING FACULTIES AFTER THE INSPECTION IS OVER. GOVT IS NOT RECRUITING FACULTY BECAUSE CALLOUSNESS OF BUREAUCRATS OR FAULT IN RECRUITMENT CRITERIA

  3. TOTAL EYE WASH….JUGGLARY OF FIGURES/DATA…

    Just increasing the number never give good knowledge and stronger helath sustem,, I think PM sir should consider medical faculty/teachers for respectful salary,, because our counterparts of corporate or private practioners are getting huge amount,, it\’s not the matter of only salary but good working condition as well allowances for med research..

  5. More than the UG there is a bigger crunch at the PG level. Hardly any MBBS student wants to stop there.
