Centre allows Jharkhand to retain 100 MBBS seats

9/29/2015

RANCHI: The state government has finally succeeded in retaining the 100 MBBS seats, which were cancelled by the Medical Council of India in August last year, with the Union health ministry's mediation. 
 
The Union ministry's decision to keep 50 seats intact at Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College (MGMMC) in Jamshedpur and Patliputra Medical College and Hospital (PMCH) in Dhanbad, which was personally overseen by health minister JP Nadda, reached Nepal House late on Thursday evening. A soft copy of the official order reached health secretary K Vidyasagar on Friday. 
 
For the state health department, which was hoping for approval for 50 seats, the order came as a pleasant surprise. Health minister Ramchandra Chandravanshi, after his meeting with Nadda on Wednesday, had said consensus was reached on giving back 25 seats each at PMCH and MGMMC. 
 
Chandravanshi called it a notable achievement on Friday. "We had been fighting hard. As much as 90% of the shortcomings which the MCI had pointed out were complied with," he said. 
 
Chandravanshi thanked the Union minister for his role in breaking the deadlock, especially after the Jharkhand high court ordered the Centre to take a decision by Friday. 
 
The restoration of 100 seats would pave the way for counselling for all the 350 seats (150 at Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences and 100 each at PMCH and MGMMC). 
 
Though an official notification is due till Monday, preparations have begun for counselling. "The JCECEB (Jharkhand combined entrance competitive examination board) has been asked to get on with counseling from Monday accordingly," Vidyasagar said on Friday.
