Mansukh Mandaviya  : UG, PG seats in medical education to be levelled in next four years

Gandhinagar :  Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Mansukh Mandaviya, has announced that the governments aims to level Undergraduate (UG) and Postgraduate (PG) seats in medical education in the coming four years. The Minister was speaking at the 13th Annual Conference of the Global Association of Physicians of Indian Origin in Gandhinagar, Gujarat. At the event, he also invited healthcare professionals from the Indian diaspora to invest in research and open hospital chains in the country with “assured business.” 

“Eight years ago, India had only 51,000 seats for MBBS, today the number of seats has increased to 1,02,026. Earlier there were 34,000 PG seats, and now the number has gone up to 64,000. I have set the target to level UG and PG seats in the next four years so that all our doctors get the opportunity to pursue post- graduation,” said the minister.
