Lack of medical colleges in India, leading to shortage of doctors, has long been a major issue in India. However, this may change in the upcoming years.
The first step in this regard is the opening of three new medical colleges in the state of Jharkhand. Following the development, the Chief Minister of the state thanked the Prime Minister and J P Nadda, the union Health Minister.
The foundations of these colleges were laid by the Chief Minister of the state, Raghubar Das in the cities of Dumka, Hazaribagh and Palamau.
The CM said, "While the Centre is spending 60 per cent, the state's contribution is 40 per cent." The CM informed that new medical colleges came up in the region after a huge gap of 45 years. He also announced that new medical colleges would also come up at Koderma, Bokaro and Chaibasa.
He also said that his government has provided 329 ambulances to different panchayats which would result in a drastic improvement in the state’s health levels.
The state which recently held its high profile investment summit, is trying hard to later its image of a backward state and making endeavours to improve its standard of living.
