Four new medical colleges for Maharashtra

Wednesday January 04, 2012 07:09:38 AM, IANS

Mumbai: Maharashtra will soon have four new medical colleges with a total intake of 400 students, Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan said here Monday.

The new medical colleges will come up in Mumbai, Raigad, Satara and Nandurbar districts, each with a capacity of 100 students.

"The estimated expenditure for the four medical colleges will be nearly Rs.1,598 crore for which the budgetary allocations would be made in five years, starting from the current year (2011-2012), and later, as per requirements," Chavan said.

Despite a huge growth in population and the growing requirements for health care facilities and manpower, this is the first time in around a decade that the Maharashtra government has initiated a move to set up state-owned medical colleges.

Simultaneously, there has been increase in the number of students aspiring to pursue the medical profession and the new medical colleges would help on this front.

Chavan said that along with the medical colleges, many hospitals would also come up in the vicinity in these four districts and the local population would be benefited.

Presently, there are 20 medical colleges spread across the state, including around 10 in the private sector, run mostly through trusts owned by politicians.
