CM Seeks Early Recognition for Sagar Medical College

Bhopal:  In a letter to Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has sought the initiation of action for the early recognition to Sagar Government Medical College, in the Bundelkhand region of the state.

In the letter, Chouhan informed Azad that the state government had taken all necessary steps towards the fulfillment of the norms prescribed by the Medical Council of India and that the college was almost fully prepared to admit students to the first year of the MBBS program.

The Chief Minister added that any shortcomings with regard to the fulfillment of the MCI norms would be removed by the time the college would commence classes for second year students.

A team comprising of Medical Council of India officials had inspected the site of the medical college at Sagar last year.

Seeking to establish a government medical college after a gap of 40 years, the state government allotted 33.88 acres of land for the project before construction work commenced at the site in August 2007.

The estimated construction cost, covering of 11.69 lakh square feet built up area, for the college is Rs. 145.42 crore, of which the first phase was completed on August 31.

18 teachers and 77 per cent subordinate level employees have already been appointed by the college. Arrangements have also been made for a laboratory and a 342-bed hospital affiliated to the college.

State Medical Education Minister, Anoop Mishra too had taken up the issue of recognition for the college with Union Health Minister, Azad.
