In a positive development for medical aspirants in Rajasthan, the National Medical Commission (NMC) has approved the addition of 100 MBBS seats at the Government Medical College in Alwar. These new seats will be available for admission starting from the upcoming academic session in 2023-2024, following the regulatory approval from NMC. The commission inspected the facilities at the college and deemed the infrastructure to be satisfactory for running the MBBS course, leading to the granting of permission for the medical college, according to Times of India.
Last year, the foundation stone for the new medical college in Alwar was virtually laid by the Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare, Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya, along with the Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Shri Ashok Gehlot.
Recent reports from the media had indicated that a team from the NMC would be inspecting several medical colleges, including those in Bundi, Dausa, Karauli, Alwar, and Hanumangarh. To prepare for the inspection, the Rajasthan Medical Education Society (RMES) in Jaipur issued a letter to the principals of these new medical colleges, advising them to be ready for the upcoming assessment.

If any assistance was needed regarding basic necessities, budget, equipment, resources, faculty, and non-faculty staff, the office should be informed.
