Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), Sector 32, on Tuesday, said it would make fresh efforts to get Medical Council of India (MCI) approval for 50 more seats of MBBS at the institute.

Director Atul Sachdev said an undertaking for compliance to do away with certain deficiencies pointed out by the MCI would be sent next week. “If MCI allows us, we will hold counselling later for 50 more seats,” said Sachdev, adding that the institute was making efforts for the same.

On Tuesday, high drama was witnessed at the counselling session conducted at GMCH as parents staged a protest regarding ‘misinformation’ in the prospectus brought out by the institute for admissions.

The institute completed counselling of 50 regular seats on Monday. Meanwhile, the hospital carried out counselling for 100 seats at the dental sciences college, Panjab University (PU).

“We have received 300 applications and 48 students have been selected. The second round of counselling will be held on July 17,” said Ashish Jain, director, dental sciences college, PU.

Three students were also finalised under the non-resident Indian quota for which there are 15 seats at GMCH.
