Gujarat likely to get 400 more PG medical seats
The state government accepted the notification of the Medical Council of India (MCI) which raised the intake capacity of PG students per professor and associate professor.

- 3 instead of 2 PG seats allotted to a Professor
- 2 instead of 1 PG seat allotted to an Associate Professor

Sources in the health department said it will implement this from the next academic year, beginning April 2017-18

Gujarat currently has 1,500 PG medical seats, of which 1,300 are at government medical colleges. The state get at least 400 seats more, even with the 30% vacancies in medical teachers.

7 self financed medical colleges run by the state-controlled Gujarat Medical Education and Research Society (GMERS) and other self-financed colleges like NHL Municipal Medical College will not get more PG seats.

MCI asked has government colleges to send details of all professors and associate professors to compute the exact increase in PG seats.
