The Medical Council of India has this year cancelled the license for medical colleges for various reasons. In this regard, it has released a notification cautioning the students and NEET organiser CBSE to be careful while admitting students into colleges. Out of the total number of medical colleges available in the country, these 69 will no more be able to admit students under them.
Although the order has come out clear, the MCI has warned the students to be cautious of impostors that claim admissions in unrecognised colleges. In Kerala too six medical colleges have been black listed for admissions.
