STATEMENT REFERRED TO IN REPLY TO LOK SABHA
STARRED QUESTION NO. 500* FOR 26TH JULY, 2019

(a) to (c): As per information provided by Medical Council of India (MCI), the Council has not received any proposal / application from the State Government of Maharashtra for establishment of new medical college at Amravati, Maharashtra for the academic year 2020-2021.
Further, the Government is implementing a Centrally Sponsored Scheme namely ‘Establishment of new medical colleges attached with existing district/referral hospitals’ to increase the availability of doctors in the country. Under the Phase-I of this Scheme, one medical college has been approved in Gondia, Maharashtra at a cost of Rs.189 crore to be shared between Centre and State in the ratio of 60:40. This medical college has become functional. Further, under the Phase-II of the Scheme, an analysis was done to ensure the availability of at least one medical college for every 3 Parliamentary Constituencies and at least 1 Government Medical College in each State of the country. Accordingly, mapping was done and requirement of 24 new medical colleges under Phase-II of the Scheme has been identified. Amravati, Maharashtra already has a private medical college in the name of Dr. Panjabrao Alias Bhausaheb Deshmukh Memorial Medical College and hence it can not be considered under the Scheme.
