According to the statement from the JNMC, the Commission disapproved its proposal to increase medical seats from 150 to 200 one day before the Eid festival. The medical college claimed that the discrepancy in the data collected by the NMC team happened due to miscalculations.

Professor Rakesh Bhargava, Dean, Faculty of Medicine and Principal, JNMC said: “Since the proposal pertaining to the enhancement of MBBS seats from 150 to 200 at JNMC was disapproved by NMC on July 8, 2022, a day before the Eid festival; the discrepancies mentioned in the letter seem to be an outcome of the miscalculations done on the basis of the incomplete data collected by the assessors of the NMC related to bed occupancy, pathological and radiology investigations, OT Surgeries, OBG deliveries, etc”.

“Besides this, some faculty members were on leave due to Eid and Friday that has been considered as paucity of teachers by the NMC. Moreover, the data mentioned in the letter of the NMC team is only of a couple of hours and not the whole day of July 8, 2022 (Friday)”, he added.

Earlier in August, NMC had invited applications for starting of new medical colleges, increase of seats and renewal of courses pending for recognitions for the academic year 2023-24. The Commission also warned the medical colleges of actions including non-processing of their applications if they disallow the assessors from the NMC Medical Assessment and Rating Board (MARB) to carry out inspections. Recently, NMC approved 100 MBBS seats for a new government medical college in Odisha's Keonjhar district.
