The Medical Council of India and the Dental Council of India were set up under ACTs of Parliament with a view to regulate medical and dental education in the country. Under the provisions of Regulations of the two statuary bodies, no medical or dental college can be established or increase their capacity without prior approval of the Central Government. As per section 10A of the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956 and the Destistry Act, 1948, the Central Government’s permission to such colleges are granted initially for one year, i.e., for admitting only one batch of students in a calendar year. The permissions are to be renewed on yearly basis after verification of achievements of annual targets. This process is continued till such time the full required infrastructure is created and recognition is granted under the relevant Act.

The admissions made without the requisite permission from the Govt. of India shall be deemed as irregular. The degrees awarded to students admitted by the Colleges without obtaining the required approval/renewal shall not be recognised for registration to practice medicine/dentistry in India. Hence, the parents and students are hereby advised to verify the status of the colleges for admitting students for the academic year 2004-2005 from the Central Government and MCI/ DCI before seeking admission in MBBS/BDS courses. For the benefit of the public, the list of medical and dental colleges in India approved for conducting MBBS and BDS courses respectively with their current status for taking admissions for the year 2004-2005 is given alongside.

All the undergraduate and postgraduate medical degrees/diplomas awarded by various Universities and Medical Institutions which are recognised under section 11(2) of the IMC Act, 1956 along with the names of the Institutions approved for conducting each course are also indicated alongside. This does not include some of the postgraduate degrees/ diplomas awarded by some Universities which were started by the concerned institutions prior to the commencement of the IMC (Amendment) Act, 1993 with the approval of the State Governments/ Universities. The Institutions concerned are requested to apply to the Central Government for recognition of such degrees/diplomas under section 11(2) of the IMC Act, 1956 through the affiliating Universities at the earliest as until then theses degrees would continue to remain unrecognised for the purposes of the Act.

The information on this site is continuously updated.
