The Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare on Tuesday gave its approval to Medical Council of India’s (MCI) recommendation to allow admission of MBBS students to the Indira Gandhi Government Medical and Research Institute (IGGMCRI).
The MCI, in an earlier meeting, had given its consent to the proposal of conducting the fifth batch admission in the college. However, in April, the MCI had opposed the idea of granting approval to the State-owned IGGMCRI for medical admission. The reason behind this opposition, according to MCI, was inadequate faculty in the institute amongst many other reasons.
Following this controversy, IGGMCRI went on filling 60 posts of Associate Profession and Assistant Professor to meet the criteria set by the MCI. The Centralized Admission Committee had already conducted counseling and other relevant processes for admission into IGGMCRI and other self-financed medical institutes.
“Call letters will be dispatched to students from tomorrow. Students are advised to approach the corresponding college. Last date for reporting to the college is July 21,” Dr. Jayakumar, Convener of CENTAC said.
