Minister for Medical Education and Raichur district in-charge Sharan Prakash R. Patil on Friday said that the Union government and the Medical Council of India (MCI) have given permanent recognition to Raichur Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS).
Dr. Patil was speaking to presspersons at the Mahatma Gandhi Stadium here.
“We have good news on the occasion of Rajyotsava that the Union government and the MCI have given permanent recognition to RIMS. The order has been issued.
“There will be no problem for students who graduated from RIMS for joining post-graduate courses under the government quota in medical colleges outside the State as per their CET ranking,” he said.
To a query about the alleged blocking of medical seats under government quota, the Minister said that he would look into the matter.
“I have asked the officer concerned to furnish a detailed report. I will take action once I get the report,” he said. Dr. Patil said that the district hospital would be shifted from the old building to a new one on RIMS campus in January.
