Mangaluru: The unauthorized sale of medical seats in the name of G.R. Medical College in Mangaluru has raised significant concerns. The National Medical Commission has initiated a comprehensive investigation into the matter. The commission has formally requested the state government to examine the reported anomalies in the allocation of medical seats. The future of the 150 students enrolled in G.R. Medical College, which was established two years ago in Neermarga, Mangaluru, remains uncertain.
As per the report, 150 students were admitted to the MBBS program for the academic year 2022-23, and permission was granted to operate MARB Medical College in the preceding year, 2021-22. However, a visit by the MARB team in September 2022 revealed that the college fell short of the required standards and lacked qualified staff for the research center. Consequently, MBBS admissions for the second batch were disallowed. Nevertheless, the allocation of seats to 150 individuals without authorization led to significant financial gains.
The G.R. Medical College administration has lodged an appeal with the National Medical Commission (NMC) to challenge the revocation of NMC authorization. This appeal is a reaction to what the administration perceives as the department’s oversight in guiding the director of the state medical education department on two separate instances.
