A team of Medical Council of India (MCI) recently visited Indira Gandhi Government Medical College and Hospital (Mayo) recently and are likely to increase the postgraduate (PG) seats from 82 to 100.
It is planned to increase 10 seats of preventative and social Medicine department and 8 seats of pharmacology and microbiology.
The postgraduate seats will be increased due to the new conditions of the Medical Council of India (MCI) over the ratio of teachers and students. MCI is planning to increase about 800 seats out of which 200 seats will be for economically backward students.
All the concerned colleges will have to submit a proposal to MCI while a proposal of economically backward students will be given to the Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER).
The team visited various departments and then discussed the issue with the dean Dr. Ajay Kevaliya. As no error was reported by the team, it decides to increase ten seats of PSM department and eight seats of pharmacology and Microbiology taking the total seats from 82 to 100.
