At present, there are 271 medical colleges in the country, out of which 138 are in the Government sector and remaining 133 medical colleges are in the private sector.  State-wise details in this regard can be seen at Annexure-I.  The MBBS students intake capacity of these medical colleges is about 31,172 and the number of seats available in various PG medical courses is approximately 11,005 annually.

As to the number of reserved seats in MBBS and PG medical courses, the data is not centrally maintained.  However, at the State level, the State Governments follow their reservation policy.  And in the All India Quota against these seats, 15% seats are reserved for SC candidates and 7.5% for ST candidates.

The number of medical colleges recognized since April 2004, is 27, the details of which can be seen at Annexure-II.

The Central Government encourages starting of new courses and increase of seats in MBBS and PG medical courses.  For this purpose, the concerned institutions are required to apply to the Central Government for permission as per the Regulations framed under Indian Medical Council Act, 1956, after obtaining Essentiality Certificate from the State Government, Consent of Affiliation from University concerned etc.  Such applications received from the medical colleges are evaluated by the Medical Council of India and on its recommendations and taking into consideration various factors, the Central Government takes appropriate decision to grant necessary permission in this regard from time to time.

This information was given by the Minister for Health & Family Welfare, Dr. Anbumani Ramadoss in a reply to a question in the Lok Sabha.
