” Today, I feel a sense of satisfaction in inaugurating this medical college and hospital. It will be very valuable for the residents of Bastar and I dedicate this hospital to them. ”

The President said that this is a moment of dramatic changes in India. Great efforts are being made for the welfare and development of rural and tribal communities. Housing for all, especially for the poor, with facilities for a toilet, drinking water and electricity, are a national endeavour. New schools and educational institutions, including IITs and AIIMS, are being established. Skills-based training is being imparted to young people. Fellow citizens from smaller locations and with moderate incomes are experiencing air travel at affordable rates. Gradually, the gap between the well-off and the not-so-well-off is becoming smaller.

  1. Dear Honourable President of India

    Congratulations, that we have another hospital which would serve our poor masses, but do you think still the accesability is upmak-I think no!!.Please allow more postgraduates by easing laws, ammending the age old MCI act, 1956. We postgraduates from india who have completed our studies abroad and are working as prestigious seniour consultants at various hospitals the world over after coming our specialisations in foreign countries want to retuen to our country with our vast expertise and knowledge, however it\’s a pity that we are considered only at the most MBBS as there is no mechanism in the present MCI act 1956 to register aspecialist/postgraduate-except from 5 English speaking countries to register in india as a postgraduate. Me being qualified in a prestigious European Union nation , working as senior consultant with many years of experience in a superspeciality cannot work legally as a superspecialist in my superspeciality.Monetarily I am OK , but still the urge remains to work in our own country, for our relatives , our people.If something can be done for foreign educated postgraduates , we would be grateful.
