The retrospective recognition has been given to the batches admitted from 1974 to 1993 who had been trained at GSVM Medical College. The MCI BoG made the decision after perusing the letters written by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MoHFW) and viewing the representation filed by one Dr Rajesh Shrivastava seeking retrospective recognition to the concerned batches.
The medical council board had also mulled over the letter received from the Medical College's Principal informing that the Diploma in Cardiology course had been discontinued in 1991.
Considering the request made by the concerned authorities, the MCI BoG decided to recommend to the Central Government to give retrospective recognition to Diploma in Cardiology granted by CSJM University, Kanpur to batches admitted from 1974 to 1993 at GSVM Medical College for the course.
