Increase the number of medical and para-medical colleges to make India self-sufficient in human resources

Adequate Progress

There were 404 medical colleges in India in 2014, offering 54,000 seats. Currently, there are 460 medical colleges offering 64,000 seats.

However no such data is available for para medical colleges, as there is no regulatory body for paramedical courses in India. This issue needs immediate government attention, as a regulatory body is the fundamental condition to ensure self-sufficiency in human resources.

    64000 seats are more than our requirement. I fear there will be unemployment among the medical graduates in near future. Education quality at medical colleges may be deteriorated.
