MCI announced increase in number of Medical seats

The students won’t have to battle further for seats in medical colleges to pursue a post-graduation as the Medical Council of India (MCI) has given the green signal for additional PG medical seats across various states in the upcoming academic year. It has been estimated that approximately 2,000 seats in all, with Tamil Nadu having the largest swell, followed by Karnataka, Gujarat and Maharashtra.




It has been observed that in some streams like MD (anaesthesia), a seat for the general category student in some Maharashtra colleges is available once in two years. It has been reported that the regulatory body had received applications from 45 medical colleges across 12 states.
  • By end of March, seats in post-graduate medical education will go up by 2,000.
  •  MCI is heading with such a nature of expansion that will allow two PG seats for every professor it has, earlier it used to be only one seat per professor.
Maharashtra could just be the loser in this expansion. Both Tamil Nadu and Karnataka had invested hugely in not only setting up new public medical colleges, but also in attracting senior faculty members by offering them competitive compensation packages and permission to practice privately. But Maharashtra has, for several years, suffered from vacant faculty positions and poor budgetary allocation for higher professional education.

  • In the mean time the existing colleges have been asked to submit a list of faculty members they have in each subject to MCI and on that basis the student intake capacity will be raised.
  • Private medical colleges will also undergo similar expansion after an inspection by MCI for getting the additional seats.

However, by March-end, the MCI believes that the student intake capacity for PG medical seats in the country will be approximately 16,500. MCI has sent out sanction letters for 1,600 seats to various state government. This is a giant leap from 14,260 seats to 16,500 seats for medical education.
