Gian Sagar Medical College received nod from MCI for MBBS

Date: 28-Jan-2020

Gian Sagar Medical College and Hospital, Banur in Patiala has received permission from the Medical Council of India (MCI) to admit 150 students to its MBBS course from the 2020-2021 academic session. The medical college is run by the Gian Sagar Educational and Charitable Trust.

Gian Sagar Medical College was closed in 2017 as the Government withdrew essentiality certificate, which is a mandatory condition to run a medical college, due to financial crisis in the trust managing the medical college. The medical college staff was not paid salaries. To save career of around 1,500 MBBS students enrolled in the college, the government shifted them to other medical colleges in Punjab.

A new management took over the trust in the year 2018. The medical college was given the essentiality certificate by the State Government allowing it to start MBBS, BDS, BPT and B.Sc. Nursing courses in July last year. Admission to 60 seats in BPT and B.Sc. Nursing were made last year. The decision to reopen the medical college had been taken on the demand of the people of the area. The hospital caters to the healthcare needs of hundreds of villages in and around the city.

According to a spokesperson of the Trust, the outpatient and inpatient departments and OT have started functioning. The hospital is being upgraded to a multispecialty one by new equipment and machines. The MCI has inspected the medical college and found the infrastructure adequate to admit students to its MBBS course.
