The Medical Council of India (MCI) has agreed to restore all 1,050 medical seats in West Bengal which were cancelled earlier this year after the state government assured of infrastructure upgrade and full compliance of Council’s guidelines.
“We had earlier restored 400 seats and at a meeting in Delhi it was decided today that we will give back the remaining 645 seats as well,” MCI’s Sudipta Roy said.
He said the decision was taken after being assured by the state health department that infrastructure would be upgraded and MCI guidelines complied with.
