Update: After some changes being posted in MCI-18(1)/2018-Med./100818 amendment by Govt of India Gazette notification for MCI, I am updating the article to describe changes in MBBS and PG medical seat permission and recognition. Colleges/ Institutes will get permission for PG medical degree courses for 4 academic years and Diploma courses for academic 3 years. When the 1st batch is going for the exam, the institute can apply for recognition. If not recognized even after 2 attempts, the course will be added to First Schedule of the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956 i.e. it will be recognized only for those admitted batches and no more batches could be admitted to the said course.
