In response to recent reports circulating in various print and electronic media outlets, the National Medical Commission (NMC) has issued a public notice debunking what it terms as “fake news.” The notice emphasizes that the Medical Assessment and Rating Board (MARB) has not granted approval for the establishment of any new medical colleges or the increase of undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate (PG) seats in various medical courses for the academic year 2024-25.

The NMC clarified that while applications have been received, the process of evaluation and decision-making is still ongoing. Any decisions made in this regard will be promptly communicated and updated on the official NMC website.

It’s noteworthy that the MARB, tasked with assessing and approving new medical institutions and seat increases, has received a significant number of applications for the upcoming academic year. Specifically, 112 applications have been submitted for the establishment of new medical colleges, and 58 applications have been received for the augmentation of MBBS seats in existing medical colleges.

The NMC has urged all stakeholders, including the general public, to exercise caution and refrain from giving credence to misleading information propagated by certain media outlets. The commission emphasizes the importance of relying on official communications from authorized channels to stay informed about developments in the medical education sector.

As the evaluation process continues, the NMC remains committed to upholding transparency and integrity in its decision-making processes, ensuring the highest standards of medical education and training across the country.
