    Opening of new medical college is good. But the maner which the mohfw and over sight committe of SC granting LOP over riding the objection of MCI is seting a bad precidence. What will happen to the students if mci does not permit admisson next year due to lack of faculties or any other reason. Then mci will be blamed.

  2. not go for MBBS until they increase PG seats equal and it will be continuation of MBBS and PG together one course for 7 year – all sitting for making money
