The Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHFW), GOI and the Medical Council of India (MCI) have taken this initiative with the objective to enhance greater participation of the private sector to increase the number of medical colleges in the country to meet the shortfall of doctors and thereby augment the health-care sector without compromising the standards of medical education.
