Punjab to hold entrance test for MBBS, BDS in May


The Punjab government on Friday said it will conduct entrance test for admission in MBBS and BDS courses in May this year.
The instructions in this regard have been issued to the officers to complete the necessary arrangements, a release quoted Punjab medical education and research minister Anil Joshi as saying. 
The minister issued instructions in a meeting in which secretary Husan Lal, vice-chancellor of Baba Farid University of Health Sciences, Dr Raj Bahadur and principals of medical and dental colleges were present. 
The department has raised its demand before the Medical Council of India (MCI) to increase the MBBS seats of medical colleges in Amritsar and Patiala and MCI would soon take a call on it, Joshi said. 
He expressed hope that the state government would get Rs 42 crore under Prime Minister's Health Security Scheme and it (state) would give Rs 18 crore as matching grant. 
These funds would be used for the upgradation of infrastructure in colleges and for better health services, he said.
