Intakes Increased In 3 Medical Colleges
The Delhi High Court, New Delhi, on September 29th has passed an order to The Medical Council of India as, to offer an increment with respect to intake additional candidates for Medical Courses from 100 to 150 in number in three private medical colleges. The court justifies this order as, India the developing country needs more number of doctors for the future in order to improve facilities.

The three colleges which would undergo this change is said to be the Teerthanker Mahaveer Institute of Management and Technology, Rama Medical College Hospital and Research Centre, and School of Medicine Sciences and Research, Sharda University. This decision was taken based on 67th place ranked for India among 133 Developing countries with doctors in a ratio at 1:1,700 when compared to the world ratio of 1.5:1,000, said Justice Kailash Gambhir .

After the private colleges had rejected the order and challenged the MCI order to increase the number of intakes, Justice Gambhir on Wednesday finally approved his judgment and said, “The petitioners before this court are seeking increase in additional intake and it is not in dispute that for seeking the said increase they had applied within the stipulated time as prescribed in the regulations." He also said that the parties were aware of that the deadline for admissions was at September 30th, as a result if these matters are remanded back to the MCI, then these petitions will become infructuous against the decision for this court in their favour .

“There were only 19 medical colleges in the country at the time of Indian Independence, and today its almost 335 colleges imparting MBBS education across India. This indeed points out towards the significant rise which has been a sign of the progress and growth of a nation. This order to increase number of intakes will be taken as better health care delivery system for our Country,” the court said .

“Though India has less share in number of Government colleges, it also has Private colleges with more responsibility. But still, only one medical college per 38.41 lakh which figures out the acute crises in the whole Country,” it added .
