MCI rejects permission to Idukki Medical College for admitting 50 MBBS students this year
Kerala: In a major setback to the Idukki Government Medical College authorities, the institute has lost the chance to admit 50 MBBS students this academic year as the apex Medical Council of India (MCI) has denied its permission on the same.
The medical college reportedly failed to pass the standards of MCI approval as the Medical Council of India marked certain lacks in the infrastructure and other facilities of the institution in its recent inspection. After inspection, the council denied permission to the college for admitting students.
The council issued the order denying the permission during one of its hearing on September 25th. Hence, the institution will not be able to admit 50 MBBS students for the coming academic session.
Due to Covid-19 pandemic, no physical verification was conducted by the MCI officials, adds TOI
