Ranchi: The Medical Council of India(MCI), that had earlier threatened to cancel all 198 PG seats of Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS), Ranchi due to relevant information regarding the institution not being uploaded on time has now reversed its decision.

The Council has now returned to assure that no seat reduction would happen in the case of RIMS. On Friday, Nidhi Khare met MCI ‘s Secretary, Reena Nayyar and gave her a count of all UG/PG seats in order to protect seat retention.

All medical colleges in the state have been given instructions about this,” she told Pioneer.
