The Uttar Pradesh cabinet on Tuesday gave a nod to enforce the recommendations of an expert committee, which would lead to the creation of 10,000 teaching and non-teaching posts for the smooth conducting of graduate, post-graduate and super-specialty courses in the state’s medical universities, colleges, and institutes.

According to the standards set by the Medical Council of India (MCI) and the National Medical Commission (NMC), Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath presided over the meeting of the cabinet that endorsed the new norms to ensure the bare minimum human resources in medical institutions.

The determination to execute the new norms and standards would direct to the creation of 10,000 additional posts and it would incur an additional expenditure of Rs 921.65 crore per annum, stated State Finance Minister Suresh Khanna.

At present, 60 per cent of the endorsed posts are filled up in these institutions. So, the creation of new posts will not lead to an additional financial burden instantly and arrangements for the same would be made in a phased manner, stated a press release.

A committee of experts led by the director-general (medical education and training) had made suggestions for medical institutions running under the control of the state’s medical education department. These include SGPGI, Lucknow; RMLIMS, Lucknow; KGMU, Lucknow, Kalyan Singh Super Specialty Cancer Institute and Hospital, Lucknow, UP Medical University, Saifai, Etawah and Super Specialty Paediatric Hospital and Post Graduate Teaching Institute, Gautam Buddh Nagar.

Some new norms have been contrived keeping in view the number of seats in any course and the number of beds in hospitals. The new posts will be created in accordance with new guidelines following the approval of the chief minister.
