The Medical Assessment and Rating Board (MARB) of the National Medical Commission (NMC) has provisionally recognized all the 1,000 PG medical courses of all the government and private teaching medical colleges in Telangana state for one more year.

It is informed through a recent statement released by MARB, in view of the Covid pandemic, some medical colleges were inspected physically, some were inspected by virtual mode and the rest have submitted sworn affidavits as part of their annual inspections programme for extending the renewals of the PG courses both in the government and private medical colleges across the country.

As part of this, the NMC’s Medical Assessment Board has also conducted similar inspections of the medical colleges in all the three formats owing to the Covid pandemic restrictions and has provisionally granted extension of recognition to all the existing post graduate (PG)  medical courses for the year 2020-21 academic year, said a recent notification released by the NMC.

It is learnt that the NMC has taken this decision of liberal and non uniform mode of inspections and recognition because of the difficulties in conducting thorough inspections due to the pandemic situation prevailing across the country. “The MARB has decided to provisionally recognize all the PG medical courses for one more year, keeping in view the Covid pandemic difficulties,” observed MARB.

In fact, earlier in September, the NMC, which is the regulating body of the medical education in the country had written letters to all the vice chancellors and principals of health universities and teaching hospitals informing them that permission for their existing PG medical seats will remain valid for one more year or as notified by the local health universities in the state.

However for recognition of new medical PG seats or granting permission for new PG courses, the NMC is expected to conduct strict inspections of the medical colleges and the process of inspecting such medical courses and seats is yet to be completed.

For granting permission for such fresh renewals and granting of additional PG medical seats, the teaching hospitals are advised to approach the Commission after the extension period. In view of this, the NMC has given clear instructions and warned the teaching hospitals to ensure that they seek timely renewals of PG seats; otherwise it could result in stoppage of PG courses.

In Telangana there are over 1,000 PG medical seats in both the government and private teaching medical colleges. For this academic year all those PG medical seats have been given provisional extension of their renewals of all the medical colleges affiliated to the Kaloji Narayana Rao University of Health Sciences in the state.
