KOZHIKODE: The Medical Council of India has cut short 50 MBBS seats in Kozhikode Medical College Hospital (MCH) following lack of basic facilities. Hereafter, only 200 seats will be there in the college. The medical council rejected the plea given by the college to allow them to carry on with the admissions in 250 seats. Meantime, the council decided to grant 50 more seats in a private medical college in Kannur.
The medical council pointed out that the college authorities filed a plea to retain the 250 seats without enough arrangements. There are five vacancies in surgery department, two in associate professor department and three in assistant professor department. There is not enough paramedical staff also. The full details of the nursing staff have not been furnished. There are not enough seats in lecture classes and the present library is not up to the mark.
