About 5,000 MBBS seats might go waste and vacant


Almost 40 medical colleges are in a difficult situation. Though they have been permitted by the Supreme Court to admit students for the courses this academic year, the conditions have come with many strings attached.

Accepting these conditions will ruin these colleges financially while not accepting them would allow about 5,000 seats to go waste and vacant this academic year.

These colleges were forced to go to the Supreme Court because the MCI refused permission as serious lapses were found in infrastructure or faculty requirement in these institutions during surprise inspections.

In and extraordinary interim order, the SC intended to modify the earlier order in the view of severe shortage of doctors in the country and also not granting a relief would mean large number of MBBS seats going waste.

The bench then said all these colleges which claim to have set right the anomalies found by MCI inspection teams must file individual undertakings stating that the shortcomings had indeed been corrected. If the claim undertaking is found to be false or incorrect during next MCI inspection then the institution concerned would lose its bank guarantee of Rs 10 crore, said the bench.
