Uttar Pradesh to have three new medical colleges

Lucknow, Sep 27 : The Uttar Pradesh government has cleared setting up of three private medical colleges in the state, an official said Friday.

A decision to allow these medical colleges at Mathura, Lucknow and Mainpuri was taken at the steering committee meeting presided over by the Chief Secretary Jawed Usmani.

Officials said initial objections were made on naming the Mathura medical college as SN medical college but the differences between officials were ironed out.

The objection was that SN medical college is the name of the government medical college, operating in Agra for many decades.

All formalities of opening a medical college in Mainpuri - the parliamentary constituency of the Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, were also completed. A proposal to open the MC Saxena medical college in Lucknow also got the approval of the committee.

Owing to the ban on opening up of dental colleges, the proposal to increase the seats of BDS was kept in abeyance and would be taken up at the next meeting of the steering committee.
