NMC rejected applications of 5 new government medical colleges, read the news

Jaipur : The hopes of medical students of Rajasthan waiting for the opening of five new government medical colleges this year have been dashed. The National Medical Commission (NMC) has rejected the application made by the state government to start admission in Nagaur, Sawai Madhopur, Baran, Banswara and Jhunjhunu from the academic session 2024-25. NMC has taken a final decision on 113 colleges across the country and sent their information to their management. Apart from five government colleges in the state, there are also 6 private colleges. Of which two each are from Jaipur-Jodhpur and one each from Sriganganagar and Kota.

Delay was due to code of conduct: Shubhra Singh

Additional Chief Secretary of Medical Education Department, Shubhra Singh said that the Medical Assessment and Rating Board has rejected the proposals of these medical colleges for the time being due to lack of facilities as per the standards of NMC. She said that due to the code of conduct of the assembly and Lok Sabha elections, there was a delay in fulfilling the necessary standards in these medical colleges. But efforts are being made to remove the shortcomings at the higher administrative level.

Told the news of permission baseless

After the information issued by NMC about the final decision to 113 colleges, the news went viral on Monday that permission has been given to these colleges for admission in the academic session 2024-25. After this, NMC issued a circular calling these reports baseless. In which it was told that the circular issued by NMC on July 6 was only about sending information about the final decision taken about them to the colleges. NMC has also clarified that the decisions taken on the concerned colleges will be made public on the website at the appropriate time.
