PG Medical Courses: Govt extends of last date MCI applications by medical colleges

As per the revised MCI norms, the ICU beds will henceforth be counted in the total bed strength of the medical colleges which in turn would help in creating more post-graduate seats.

New Delhi: The government has extended the last date for receipt of post-graduate applications for next year by over a month to allow medical colleges to apply for adding more seats as per the revised norms.

In the month of March, 2019,  the Medical Council of India Board of Governors had invited the medical colleges across the country to apply for starting PG medical courses/increasing PG medical seats (Broad Speciality). The earlier deadline for the same was April 7, 2019. PTI reports that the deadline for applications has been increased by the Union Health Ministry.

The move comes after the Health Ministry approved the proposal of the Board of Governors of the Medical Council of India to extend the last date for receipt of applications for starting postgraduate medical courses for the session 2020-21 from April 7 to May 15, a health ministry official said.
