NMC states in its notice that, “such medical colleges or institutes may submit fresh applications for increase of seats in various post-graduate courses being run by them for admission in the Academic Session 2024-25 since Medical Assessment and Rating Board (MARB) has called applications for increase of seats in post-graduate courses.”

Earlier this week, the NMC said that the medical colleges established from 2024-25 will be allowed to have a maximum of 150 undergraduate (UG) seats provided the institute follows the ratio of 100 MBBS seats for 10 lakh population in that state, as per the new UG guidelines. 

The Medical Assessment and Rating Board (MARB) also invited applications for setting up new medical colleges, renewal of existing medical courses and increasing UG, and PG medical courses. As per the announcement, the medical colleges will have to submit the application for MD, MS, and MDS programmes by September 15.
