10,000 more MBBS seats, a welcome move!

The Central government had cleared a proposal recently for adding over more than 10,000 MBBS seats across the government medical colleges in India by upgrading the existing infrastructure which is aimed at bringing down the doctor-patient ratio.

As part of the Rs 10,000 crore proposal, the Centre would be bearing Rs 7,500 crore while the state/Union Territory's will have to allocate Rs 2,500 crore. The proposal was cleared by Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs which approved the Rs 10,000 crore proposal put forth by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare that aims at increase in the Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) seats.

The funding pattern is expected to be 90:10 by Central and State Governments for only North Eastern states and special category states. Each MBBS seat is expected to cost approximately Rs 1.20 crore which envisages increasing the number of doctors and doctor-patient ratio from the current 1:2000 to 1:1000.

Currently there are 50,000 MBBS seats across the country while the government is keen to increase them for reducing the shortage of doctors, reduce the disease burden and motivate them to work in the remote areas of the country, especially in the rural regions.
