The medical colleges in the country are set for some uplift after a recent decision by the Union Government. On Monday, Union health ministry introduced an online procedure of receiving application from medical colleges seeking to start post- graduation courses or increase seats in existing ones. This is an add-on facility.
The procedure is simple, as after online submission, applicants will have to upload a scanned copy of the consent of university, demand draft and other documents. Online application has become mandatory (with effect from March 15). The last date for submission of applications is April 7, 2016.
Colleges which want to increase their existing seats or want to start PG courses need to follow these steps- candidates need to visit health ministry website and click on the link medicalcollegeappication.gov.in. Candidates are requested to do a 'one time registration' using a valid email address at the 'registration window' provided at the link.
This is just an add-on facility running with the conventional system of manual submission of applications. Candidates are also requested to file a manual copy of the completed application as prescribed by the MCI regulations, along with all valid documents and a draft in original as evidence of the fee-paid...and a 'signed copy' of the system generated online application acknowledgment on or before due date and time as notified.
