The state government today started the process to cancel the essentiality certificate and NOC issued to Chintpurni Medical College and Hospital (CMCH), Pathankot, for failing to abide by the Establishment of Medical College Regulations, 1999, and not fulfilling the conditions prescribed in the certificate issued for starting the MBBS course. As per the MCI regulations, the cancellation of the certificate is mandatory before shifting the 101 MBBS students of 2014 batch of CMCH to other medical colleges in the state.

Besides, the DMER has also started the process to shift 148 MBBS students of the 2016 batch in CMCH to other colleges in the state as, after the cancellation of essentiality certificate and NOC, the CMCH will be a defunct college. 101 students will be shifted to three government medical colleges in Faridkot, Amritsar, and Patiala, while the 148 students will be shifted to government and private medical colleges as per their admissions on government and management quota seats in CMCH last year. While these 101 students were paying just Rs. 26,250 per annum as tuition fee in CMCH for the past three years, now they will have to pay Rs. 2.2 lakh per annum, for which they have given an undertaking.

The MCI had declined admissions in 2012, 2013, 2015 and 2017 as the college had failed to create infrastructure as per the norms.The students of the 2011 batch in the CMCH were already shifted to other colleges...
