In a big to reduce the shortage for PG seats for medicines and of specialists in the field of medicine, the Medical Council of India, MCI, has passed a resolution in July 2017 that introduced a compulsion on colleges offering bachelor’s in the fields. The newly registered medical colleges however, have to commence with the PG programme wings 3 years from the recognition received from the government to commence operations. The obvious rule of non-compliance would result in loss of recognition to the college.

PG Courses in Medical Colleges

The rules for granting permission to the colleges are

  • The medical college should be recognised for its MBBS programme or for its bachelor’s in surgery or nursing programme. Sub-clause 1 to clause 1 of section 3 reads the following:
                ““The Medical college/institution must be recognized by the Medical Council of India for running Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of  Surgery/Postgraduate Course; however, the Medical College/Institute which is not yet recognized by the Medical Council of India for the award of MBBS Degree may apply for starting of a Postgraduate Course in preclinical and para-clinical subjects of Anatomy, Physiology, Biochemistry, Pharmacology, Pathology, Microbiology, Forensic Medicine and Community Medicine at the time of third renewal – i.e. along with the admission of fourth batch for the MBBS Course”

  • The permission letter has to be obtained from the relevant state government or the union territory.
  • The college shall provide the necessary equipment, facilities and faculties, beds and infrastructure etc. to run a successful post graduate programme as per the rules laid down by the Medical Council of India

In addition to this, the college should also provide a bank guarantee apart from the registration fee of 2 lakhs payable at delhi by a demand draft amounting to 85 lakhs for PG course, 64 lakhs for graduate diploma courses and 128 Lakhs to higher specialities. This rule shall not apply once again to state run colleges if they can guarantee to allocate funds in a timely manner. MCI has laid down that a standard time of one year is acceptable to approve an application request. Apart from this, regulations have also been laid down regarding the annual intake of students for MBBS course itself. If

If the permission were, for some reason owing to the facilities, not granted, then the college has two more attempts to apply for a license to not risk losing their recognition. As the Times of India reported, for now, colleges currently not recognised can apply for PG courses such as anatomy, physiology, biochemistry etc. This move has been particularly triggered after the several ministers have been vociferous in stating that the medical institutions in the country need a boost and the annual intake should be accentuated every year as well with the chief aim being to establish a major college in every district.

Currently, state run colleges can admit 50% of the seats based on the merit list prepared but must surrender the other 50% of the seats to the state for deciding on admissions.
