New Delhi, Sat, 20 Feb 2010 NI Wire

In a move to strengthen the medical study, the government has decided to upgrade nearby 150 state medical colleges by beginning new post-graduate courses in various discipline.


In this regard, the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) on Thursday approved a proposal of adding 5000 additional PG seats in 148 state government medical colleges across the country. These new seats would be added under the XI plan period with the corpus of Rs.1350-crore.

This move of government will strengthen the much-needed health and medical infrastructure of the country as several new courses in pre and para clinical disciplines such as general medicine, general surgery, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology, anaesthesiology, anatomy, microbiology, physiology, pharmacology, biochemistry, forensic medicine and community medicine will be begin under this plan.

For the implementation of this plan, the government has decided to sponsor it under Centrally Sponsored Scheme (CSS) in which Centre would allocate 75% of total funding while remaining would be borne by the respective states where these seats will be increased.

For getting better result, the CCEA has decided to distribute the fund in two instalments directly to head of the institutes and made the state governments liable for incurring the necessary expenditure for maintaining the facilities.

In case, the approved increase in PG seats or starting PG disciplines do not fructify within the prescribed period, the state governments would have to refund the whole fund, directed CCEA.
