In a move which is expected to have a considerable impact on MBBS admissions for the 2018-19 academic session, the Union Health Ministry has denied permission to 82 existing medical colleges from accepting students for the 2018-19 academic session. As a result, the estimated 64,000 available MBBS seats have been reduced by 10,430.

In addition, the Health Ministry has also rejected proposals to approve 68 new medical colleges, which could have possibly added 9,000 more MBBS seats for the 2018-19 academic session, reported the Telegraph on Monday.

From the 82 medical colleges denied permission to admit students, 70 are private colleges. A total of 4 government colleges have been affected in Uttar Pradesh, 3 in Bihar, 2 in Jharkhand, 1 in Chhattisgarh, 1 in Karnataka and 1 in Kerala.

The decisions announced by the Health Ministry were based on recommendations from the Medical Council of India, the apex regulatory body for assessing medical colleges and judging whether they have the required infrastructure, faculty and number of patients.

"People want to create things (medical colleges) without realising what the colleges require," a member of the MCI's academic committee told The Telegraph.

The MCI citied "deficiencies" in the colleges, highlighting how a scarcity of resources was challenging India's expansion in medical education.

In view of the considerable difference between number of medical seats available and the number of medical aspirants, the Union Cabinet had in February approved plans to establish 24 new government-funded medical colleges by 2021-22. In addition, 58 medical colleges are already cleared to be established and attached to district hospitals by 2019.

The NEET 2018 results, on the basis of which admissions to medical and dental courses are conducted, were declared on Monday, with 7 lakh students clearing the exam from the 13 lakh who attempted it.

DISPATCH MCI TO DUSTBIN For decades, Nation has witnessed a perpetual fight for division of Medical Education Loot proceeds between Medical Council of India and State Medical Councils - the Virtual Educationists are now bribing Heath Directorate officials in stead. Overall, Medical Admission Procedures are framed by Judiciary which is as Corrupt as any other Constituent of Indian Democracy. Supreme Court of India has Four Congress Justices constantly pulling down BJP Justice from the Top. On the eve of NEET result, 17% of MBBS Seats Blocked. 9,000 New seats (15%) not added. Many households across the Nation had Sleepless night. In the National Bribe Culture many institutes are APPROVED with No Brick Installed. National Board of Examination was floated by Father of Spurious Medicare in India - B Shankranand - to fund Swiss Bank Accounts. NBE GIFTED its role to Academy of Medical Sciences and the Examination tagged Member of Academy of Medical Sciences (MAMS). With AMS already existing, where was need for NBE? NBE Crew was only drawing the Salary with no work or building assigned. Dubious Qualification was renamed from MAMS to MNAMS to DipNBE to DNB. The Qualification has always been on sale in all parts of the Nation. Nursing Homes in Small DDA/MCD Houses in Delhi are RECOGNISED Postgraduate Medical Institutions. But there should be some transparent system to curb such malpractice. Intent to open medical college should be heavily scrutinised. Once a Medical College is opened, MCI should have no powers to shut that down. In all that Medical Education Charade, Media role sounds interesting. On 05 June night my family found a bottom line on one Channel. I have been browsing all News Channel during night and all the time after that. No reference to Sleepless Students and Citizens Across the Nation. Perhaps Media Share in Medical Education Loot Proceeds is not at all at stake. The affected medical colleges are moving to Judiciary where bribing medical colleges are not opposed by MCI. The Established Dirty Judiciary Game is On. Hopefully, Students and Parents would get some relief out of that Judicial Malpractice. http://ukmall.net/undigested/nbe

Medical Council of India members elected after throwing heavy Cocktail dinners want more share of Admission loot. The development is neither new nor unexpected. Intent of opening new medical college needs to be heavily scrutinised. After a College comes into existence, Medical Council of India should have no powers to shut that down. This episode further ensures reduction of BJP to just TWO seats in next Loksabha Elections
