250 MBBS seats lost in Odisha after MCI inspection

Odisha: MCI has now held admission in 250 medical seats in three private medical colleges for 2016-17 in the state. The reason cited for MCI dismissal is the lack of infrastructure in these medical colleges. The 3 medical colleges are Hi-Tech Medical College and Hospital (MCH) at Rourkela, Sardar Rajas MCH and Research Centre at Jaring in Kalahandi and Kalinga Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) at Bhubaneswar.

Total seats applied as per Express report

  • Sardar Rajas MCH had applied for renewal of permission for 100 seats for its fourth batch
