It looks like the Central Government is on the spree to ramp up the number of qualified medical professionals including doctors across the country. With the similar motive, the Centre on Friday approved 10 new medical colleges for Rajasthan. The move is part of a series of measures undertaken recently by the Government to overhaul medical education in India.
As per report, the 10 medical colleges will come up in different disctrict of the State including Jaisalmer, Karauli, Banswara, Alwar, Nagaur, Bundi, Sirohi, Baran, Chittorgarh and Sriganganagar.
“We had sent a proposal to the Centre, which has accepted it. This will go a long way in improving the quality of healthcare in Rajasthan and bridge the gap in the availability of human resource,” Rohit Kumar Singh, additional chief secretary (health), was quoted saying by TOI.
“We had quickly prepared quality proposals and therefore succeeded,” he said.
The Centre has approved Rs 325 crore for the Jaisalmer 300-bed medical college, said Sudhansh Pant, joint secretary with the health ministry and district in-charge.
