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.

    468 thoughts on “Difference Between MCI Permitted & Recognised Medical Seat

    1. Ashok says:

      The Permitted and Recognised is a gray area. As such it is challengebale if one wants to against MCI how can you permit and not recognize a PG seat. And not recognising the student is no where and will not have registration and hence will not be able to practice. Question is Can MCI say no to the registration. Student has taken admission, to a particular college, following MCIs permission. so MCI is party to it and MCI should give them registration. They cannot wash their hands off and refuse.
      The reason is MCI rules are so vague, and there are so many, one group will take view of one thing and by the time the next one comes it another will take another view. They have all the sticks with them, its upto them which they want to use.

      • Vinu says:

        Absolutely right…wonder why no body is filing a case …or the govt is not addressing this issue…see for example,a pg course is started in a college and permission given by university and mCI and after completing the course you get university degree certificate and not the registration…what is the logic in harassing a candidate without permitting him to practice?..for a defect in an institutes infrastructure how can you deny registration…to deny permission for fresh batches seems sensible…

      • Dr Balram says:

        As i got to know that ..maharashtra pg dipoloma course are running…so if we do pg diploma which is only recognised by maharashtra mci is good for the feature or not..kindly suggest

    2. SANJEEV says:

      is it possible to apply for superspeciality (DM/MCH) examinations, if MCI not recognized a permitted MD/MS

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        No. Eligibility criteria’s of various Superspeciality entrance exams mentions it. For example AIIMS PG prospectus says “A Candidate must possess a degree in MD/MS or DNB from a University recognized by the MCI in the respective discipline”

            • Tania says:

              Sir, I am from a private medical college in mp which was permitted and admitted it’s first batch on 2014 and since then they have not admitted a single batch as they didn’t get permission from mci.will my degree have any value when I pass my mbbs ? Could I still apply for pg entrance exam?

            • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

              your institute has to meet minimum standards to get MCI recognition. If it does that then it is possible. For appearing in PG medical entrance exams you need to have an MCI recognized seat. And for doing practice after MBBS you need MCI recognition.

    3. sai shravan kumar says:

      sir what information you gave regarding MCI Permitted Medical Seat can we get the information in the MCI site,
      sir mine is a permitted seat and i am working in the same state where i got my degree from, Now my work place is asking me my registration certificate which i don’t have, i said them that i can practise in same state without registration but they asked me to get it in document or any ref article

    4. niti says:

      Sir,Please give reference of your quote if aavailable or not -If a student has completed his/her UG/PG in a MCI permitted seat but not a MCI recognized seat can only practice in state in which the institute is located-this is a very vague statement posted by a few experts on websites.Nowhere else people get this type of information regarding the same.

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        Source of this statement is my friend and seniors. Even I have tried very hard to find its reference on MCI website but was unable to find it anywhere. If you find any reference please let me know as well so that I could put it in this article.

    5. jagadeesh says:

      paresh koli sir, why these mci is giving permission and again recognisation..its very hard for few students who struck in these situation..can these mci will surely recognise it after 3 years..if not what was the future of that student..till how may years he has to stay like that

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        Sure answers to these questions are not given anywhere on MCI website. But most of the permitted seats gets recognized by MCI. I don’t know what happens to other students, other than thing that they are allowed to practice in their own state.

    6. prashant wagh says:

      If I m a candidate of permitted seat while taking admission but if d same gets recognized in third year of my residentship …then is tht recognition applicable to me?

    7. ashish says:

      if i did my mbbs from foreign university and then i join md (recognized by mci ) in a foreign university , i obtain my primary mci registration during final year of my md then will my md be valid in india?

    8. ashish says:

      Is it necessary to get mbbs registered in mci ( or any state medical council ) before enrolling in md in a foreign medical college

    9. ashish says:

      if i do mbbs and md both from a foreign medical college then give mci screening exam the will my md degree be valid after passing the screening exam?

    10. Vishnu says:

      Sir I’m from Kerala but I’m doing my MD in Tamil Nadu, which is Permitted but not Recognised seat. My doubt is whether I will be able to practise in Kerala with Permitted MD degree as it is my home state. (Kindly also note that my MBBS degree and state registration are from/in Kerala) My other doubt is whether it will be possible for me to apply for work outside India viz. Middle East countries with my Permitted MD degree? Kindly help.

    11. Vishnu says:

      Dear Sir, I’m from Kerala state, but doing MCI PERMITTED MD degree from Tamil Nadu. My doubt is whether I will be allowed to practise in my home state of Kerala with my Permitted degree once I complete my course. (Please also note that my MBBS degree and state registration are from/in Kerala.) I would also like to know whether it will be possible for me to work outside India viz. Middle East countries with the Permitted MD degree. Kindly advise. Thank you.

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        Yes will be able to practice in Kerala only with a permitted degree unless it gets recognized in future, which most of the seats do.
        And outside India it totally depends on the place you are applying for. You have to manually check eligibility criterias of various countries/ institute for this. But most countries have their own eligibility exams like USMLE and PLAB, so even doctors with permitted seat can apply for these countries. Again, check the eligibility criterias to confirm this.

        • nk says:

          No..I have appeared in dnb pdcet counselling and there during verification of documents they ask for recognition certificate of ur pg diploma course.. So better u check this again sir..

          • shine says:

            • nk says:

              Yes there is option on mci website to know the permitted/recognised status of any course in any college,, u can check it or if u provide ur course and college name I can check it for you. And be sure to get this certificate from ur college whether ur course was permitted /recognised.
              In my case during pdcet counselling I had my recognised course certificate wid me but I rejected the seat as I was not getting choice seat.

          • hasan says:

            Nk sir can u please tell pdcet people r asking smc or MCI registration certificate.bcos I m planning to take cpsdch which is recognised only by Maharashtra medical council and not by MCI so in that case cab I give sec dnb

    12. Aniket says:

      As I have inquired from student section IPGME & R, SSKM hospital, Kolkata, student’s section and Dean’s office….
      1. permitted seats are almost always recognized by MCI after 3 yrs or few yrs later
      2. Permitted seats even if not recognized, one can practice anywhere in India in private hospital or set ups.
      3.If a permitted seat gets de-recognized due to some reason the students who are already admitted in the permitted seats get their recognized degree..and after hat the course is stopped.
      4. permitted seat pass outs can not apply for teaching posts or DM/MCh entrances until it gets it is acc. to the institute’s rule…
      5. seats which are writen as ”Permitted under condition” or ”permitted under section 10 (a) , this permission is conditional” in MCI website if doesn’t get recognised, the pas-out can only practice in is/her state….
      I have asked only about MD/MS seats and they told me this.
      and even in best of the best institutes the newly added seats are always permitted until the 1st batch passes out, it hold’s true for even AIIMS, PGI or any institute. So, it is very clear that when any seat is increased say mci site shows ” recognised for 2 seats , seats permitted to be increased from 2 to 4 under section 10(a)” then in all india counseling the seats are added and one gives option for all the seats in online counseling nowadays, and he may get any 1 of the last 2 permitted seats, it is not possible fr him to know if he will get the first 2 recognised seat or the last 2 permitted seat…whereas if he had given the option of a less famous college above the better college which has, say 2 recognized seats and no seat increased , then he would have got the recognised seat easily…so it is clear that in this type of scenario one can not be sure if he will get the permitted or recognized seat…if he files a case against MCI , then he will surely win.

      • Harish Kumar says:

        Isn’t your statement 2 and 5 contradictory to each other? Can u explain it properly? since any permission whether new/increase in seat is always given under 10a?

    13. Harish Patil says:

      What happens if a previously recognised seat gets derecognised? Will the previously admiited student able to practice?

        • Dr Mudasir says:

          Sir besides I have came to know tht two seats wl get recognised this year.can u plz tell will the rank I got in NEET for ortho in this institute wl play role for my recognition.
          As rank 160,183 and rank 187 ur

          So as per this list out of five admitted students my rank is second if two seats wl get recognised wl my seat also get recognised or thr is some different criterion

          • Dr Mudasir says:

            Sir thx so much for ur response sir I have checked from website yes seats are not recognised yet but in 2013-14 batch was started with two Ortho seats in 2016-17 three more seats have been permitted total of five seats now but no recognition for seats yet.As I have three years in pg might be till then will get recognised

    14. Viral T Patel says:

      Sir Myself viral patel.from admission this yr in MD pediatrics pramukhswami medical college (private)karamsad..and this is 6 th yr of permitted seat..2 studenta are pass out..noww during my admission sir told me dere will be 1-2 % chances of cancell this seat…now plz help what can i do??
      Also told dat this will be confirm after 2 3 month of admission..den wheather i leave seat or not??

      Plz help..

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        I don’t think they could cancel a seat after admission of a student on it. But still as only round 1 has been done till now, you will should get upgradation in subsequent rounds. Please confirm about cancellation of seat from MCI and other respective authorities before taking final decision.

    15. Dalan says:

      Sir,i am a medical student studying mbbs in Russia.Sir i am confused.After Mbbs,a student get a degree or diploma,because some of my friends said that only after MD one can get a degree.After Mbbs;you will only get a diploma even thou you’re stidying anywhere…U will only receive a diploma.
      And sir what’s the difference between mbbs diploma and degree.Are they the same thing.and which one ia more preferable sir..please do reply sir …

        • sumit says:

          Sir, I and my batchmates did pg from a pvt med clge in kerala from 2011-14 in permitted seats in all specialities.After our final exams we got our degree from university but mci didnt recognize the seats.We have not been able to get our additional qualification registered with our state medical council as they say seats are only ‘permitted’.Is the state medical council right?Can we register our additiinal qualification with MCi directly?It is now going to be 1 year after we passed out.What can we do now?

          • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

            You should directly contact MCI officials and ask them about recognition of the seats and also the registration. May be your state has different rules regarding registration of only recognized seats. Also please let me know as well about the outcome. I will post it in this article, which will help other students.

            • Vinu says:

              It is high time that a petition is moved in court against the betrayal of university,government ,college management and mCI making a mockery on innocent students and playing with their career in granting a degree and conducting course,later saying your degree is not recognisable..absolute injustice..especially new seats..why don’t the doctors organisation take this matter seriously and help us?

            • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

              MCI permitted seats are the way MCI wants to increase the medical seats which are a necessity of the country. By recognizing those seats MCI wants to make sure that the permitted seats are of good quality and not just medical seats for namesake.
              Still I think someone should take initiative to take this matter to courts and public so that students do not suffer for the same.

    16. sakshi says:

      sir,i am doing my mbbs from a private medical college.i was admitted in the first batch of the college,the college got permission for next year(i.e. my immediate junior batch) but not after that…as of now there are only two batches in my college.what will happen if college doesn’t get permission to admit students further?what about our future?will we be eligible to write pg entrance exams?and what about practice or any other government job?

    17. akshata says:

      Can I join a permitted seat safely? For superspeciality? Is there a chance of derecognition of the permitted seat at any time?Thank you.

    18. Harish Kumar says:

      Sir, i got upgraded to M.S Orthopaedics in Govt.Medical college Thrissur,Kerala in 2nd Round AIPG (2015-2016)..Currently 3 seats are Recognized while Seats are increased from 3 to 9 Under 10(A) in 2012-2013..First batch with 9 Pg’s going to attend exams this year (2015)..My home state is Tamilnadu..I believe they will be recognized this year itself..Under a rare circumstance even at the time of my course completion i.e) 2018 if the seats are not recognized still will i be able to register in Tamilnadu Medical council and Practice in Tamilnadu? Or it is better to Allot to a recognized college elsewhere(even if facilities or not that much) in 3rd Counselling..Please help.

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        Whether Tamilnadu Medical Council allows registration of doctors with permitted seat degree or not that you can confirm with them only. But you will be able to do private practice even with a permitted seat. Usually only Govt. jobs have this issue of only allowing recognized seat candidates in the jobs.
        I think if yours is a better institute you should stick to it rather than going to an inferior institute. Also a better institute with good facilities have comparatively high chances of conversion of permitted seat to recognized one when compared to ordinary institutes.

    19. s k das says:

      dear sir,
      i joined a recognised mdrd seat in vssmc, burla this year . but with recent mci visit pg students there are saying that they may stop taking students from next year onwards . i wanted to know if that will affect my degree? will i get recognised mdrd degree or a permitted one or none at all?
      it’s a bit urgent sir as we hv fresh choice filling from 12th may.

    20. s k das says:

      dear sir,
      as my previous cmnt ws nt posted so i m writing again.
      i hv taken a recognised mdrd seat in vssms,burla. but with recnt mci visit pg students in vssmc are saying that they may stop taking candidates from next year .. will thay affect my career?
      after 3 years will i be given a mci recognised degree or a permitted one or none at all?
      i am bit tensed as the nxt choice filling is from 12th may . should i change my subject of preference as i wud not get good clgs for mdrd?

    21. nk says:

      Is their any rule that states dat it is mandatory for pg diploma holders to undergo 3 years MD. Course if the seat is permitted and not recognised, in contrast to 2 years course as mentioned by MCI on their website

        • nk says:

          Sir what I meant to ask was that whether the doctors who have already completed their post graduate diploma should undergo 2 years course for MD or 3years,if the seat is permitted. How should I convince the institute that is adamant on its stand that one has to do 3 years course even after completion of diploma.

          • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

            Ok that way. For this you have to directly contact MCI and ask about it. If MCI is allowing it you should convey this to your institute.
            Btw I have searched a lot on MCI website regarding 2 years MD after diploma but did not find anything. Please let me know as well about any official reply you get from MCI. I will update this article with the information you provide.

            • nk says:

              Yes it is mentioned on mci website under pg rules and regulations if u provide me ur email address I can forward it to you

            • nk says:

              Sir I have sent the document to you and these are 2013 post graduate medical education amendments, here on page no 11 the duration of training is mentioned and I have marked that line in yellow colour, kindly go through it and rest of the document

            • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

              Got the mail. Thank you.
              It specifically mentioned “Provided that in the case of students having a recognised two year postgraduate diploma course in the same subject, the period of training, including the period of examination, shall be two year”.
              I think you should convey this to your institute.

            • nk says:

              Yes sir,so it’s clear na.but these pvt college people will make brainless arguments. Actually problem is dat they will make some non medico as admission incharge and he has no knowledge about our field, when u go to their departments the faculty members are ready to accept that it should be two years course for a candidate already having diploma in same speciality. But management puts obstacles coz they have lack of concept regarding medical education. Are u convinced by the document that I have sent to you. Kindly do ur bit through this website to make the medicos aware.

    22. s k das says:

      if say a college has 2 recognised and 1 permitted seat, then how will we know which seat goes to whom?

    23. shriya says:

      sir if i do mbbs from mci recognised private medical college will i be eligible to practice in government hospital and will i be eligible to give pgi chandigarh and aiims pg

    24. anurag gupta says:

      Sir i hve a doubt….if the college has 4 degree seats..out of wch 2 are recognised n 2 r permitted
      …how to know wch one is recognised n wch one is permitted… it tht 1 from state n 1 from all India are recognised or both all India seats r recognised…???…in case only 1 all India seat is recognized then out of those 2 candidates whose seat is considered recognised…the one who joins first i.e who allotted in first or second round or the one who allotted in third round…although d one allotted in third round has higher rank thn d one who alloyed in first or second round…???

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        There is no definite answer to this question. None of the authorities reveal which seat recognized or permitted has gone to ALl India Quota or state quota. Also seat about the seat allotment I think should be on 1st come 1st serve basis to get a recognized seat. But confirm answer can only be given by respective institute offices.

        • Dr.vinu G says:

          That’s a tricky situation….say 4 candidates after passing from a college of which two are recognised,and 4 are permitted,….apply for registration …for additional qualification from kerala state council,what will the council do? Deny all or give all ?????even the candidates or principal doesn’t know which is recognised?This is a true scenario to happen for RD MD candidates passed out this year from kozhikode medical college

          • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

            Recognized and permitted seats are filled on 1st come 1st serve basis. So Those 2 who have been alotted and taken admission in those seats have the recognized seats and other 2 have permitted ones. Medical council can only deny registration to those with permitted seats and not the others.

    25. Princy says:

      I have completed a MD from permitted seat in a Govt medical college. will there be a problem in getting me a permanent registration since it is only a permitted seat?

        • Harish Kumar says:

          If there is no problem in Permanent registration then why can’t one practice anywhere in the country from a permitted seat?

          • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

            As far as I know only Govt. jobs in other states are not allowed with a permitted seat. You can always do a private job. Also I was not able to find any reference regarding this on MCI website. If you do, please let me know.

    26. Ankit says:

    29. Dr-Mohit Sunny says:

      can medical graduates or post graduates from andra pradesh, jammu and kashmir, or chattigarh practice in other states of india and can get them registered with state medical council other than above mentioned 3 states. because medical graduates from andra pradesh, jammu and kashmir, or chattigarh can not appear in NEET-PG.

    30. Shivangi says:

      Im planning to do MBBS from phillipines (Southwestern university,Cebu). The college website and cpunsellors say its MCI recognized but the links of MCI website you have shown here dont mention phillipines at all. Can I email MCI to get a confirmation on this matter? If yes then can you please peovide the email ID/contact details.
      Are any colleges in dubai recognized by Mci?

    31. Sethunath says:

      We have finished our MD psychiatry and DPM exams and all have passed. But now they say that only 3 out of 10 MD seats, and 6 out of 8 DPM seats are MCI recognized. How can we know which are the recognized seats, and which are not?

        • Sethunath says:

          Hi sir,
          I have just finished DPM from Madras Medical College. In the MCI website, only 6 seats are shown for DPM in our college, and all 6 are recognized. But our college has been having an intake of 8 seats for DPM for many years now, and all have been getting the degree. But this year, since the entries have become computerized, they say they are able to enroll only those number of seats which are recognized. What could be the reason for this confusion? How were we able to admit and enroll 8 DPM seats until now ? Will this cause any problem regarding our registration and recognition this year ? Thank you for your reply in advance.

      Hello sir ,iI did my M.D obg in a private college . In which two seats are recognised & two seats are permitted . Initially they told it was my seat qhich is recognised but nw my other 2co pgs registered & I couldnt register . What can I do?

    36. Kanagarajan says:

      Respected Sir.,

      My son is doing Final Year MBBS in MAPIMS, a Private Medical College (150 Seats per yr)
      For the past 3 years, MCI is not giving recognition stating various deficiencies.Already
      Two batches of students (300) have come out and not granted Registration Numbers
      By Tamilnadu Medical Council.Parents of those students have approached Chennai
      High Court and waiting for the verdict.The MAPIMS college management even on repeated
      inspection visits by MCI, have not improved the infra structures at all.As a result the fate
      of 4 batches of MBBS students looks gloomy and parents like me wish to have wise
      counsel from learned and experienced people like you,Sir.
      We kindly request you to give us your valuable suggestions.If needed our represntative
      shall come and meet you at your premises on any date suggested by you.Kindly help us
      and our children who suffer, for no fault of them.

      sir i am intrested in taking up md in vinayak misssions college but the seat is permitted and the mci site shows the lop dated 2009 so this college has not been able to get any of its md radio seats recognised since the pat 6 years is it wise for me to persue admission in such a college ?

    38. Arul says:

      Dear Sir, I have two queries… 1) I am willing to study MBBS -(MD) in Russia, After completing the 6 years degree there, whether I need to do internship in India after clearing the MCI-FMGE exam ?? 2) Secondly, whether I will get job in Government Hospitals in India based on my MBBS/MD from Russia after clearing MCI Exam ?

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        1) Yes you have to do internship in India after clearing FMGE.
        2) That would depend on the criteria of the respective jobs but I think you should not face any issue getting a govt job.

        • Dr Shivam says:

          I have done my MBBS from China and passed out in 2012. I completed my internship in China itself and didn’t need to repeat internship after clearing FMGE. Govt. jobs is not a problem for foreign degree holders, you just need to have sound medical knowledge and answer your interviewers as best as you can

      In my pg course 2 seats are recognised and 3rd seat was increased under section 10A in 2010. Still now in 2015 the extra seat is not recognized which was supposed to be recognized after 3 case they stop admission from 2016, what will happen to the candidate who has taken the permitted seat in 2015 and also the 3rd seat candidates who have passed out in 2013,2014,2015.will all 3 get a recognized degree

    41. Polly Mitra says:

      I’m a student of a government medical college started two years ago. This year MCI don’t give permission for fresh admission. If only these two batches are there in the college then will these two batches get registration for practice in future?

    42. Dr Jyotiman Nath says:

      Sir, I am persuing a MD degree in a Govt Medical college, the seat was PERMITTED at the time of my admission.
      Now I am a final year student and the MCI has derecognized the particular seat and stopped further addmission due to deficiency of faculty.
      Can I practice in my own state after passing MD or can I become a faculty in a medical college of my my own state.

      Kindly help.

    43. harshitha says:

      Sir, I completed my M.D. in a govt college from Kerala n June 2014, now I m doing my one year bond n d same college, mine was a permitted seat when I took it, the college s refusing to give me mci course recognition certificate without which I cannot register my M.D. I m from Karnataka, I cannot practise there without registration, all my seniors and co-pgs got registration, even theirs were permitted seats, the Kerala state council gave them registration without asking for any recognition certificate, now they r refusing to give registration without mci recognition certificate. The college is not ready to give it. I don’t know what to do, if I can file a case, against whom should I file, plz help me.

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        A recognized seat is required for getting registration certificate. This has been confirmed by MCi officials to me. I don’t think there is anything you can do about it. You can ask MCI about it, they might be able to help you.

        • harshitha says:

          Thank u for ur response Sir, but what I am saying s my immediate seniors whose seats were also permitted got registration, infact the seats were increased from their batch onwards, now they r telling the mci has become strict now, previously the Kerala state council was giving registration for even permitted seats but now it’s not possible, why this bias, can’t we file a case against this? There should be uniformity, some times they give and some times they don’t. The 3 rd seat s not yet recognized, but all my seniors ( other specialities as well) got registration, on what basis they have qualified for registration and the current batch doesnt?

          • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

            Well filing a court case might hep you in this case. Also govt rules keep on changing, so you can give reason of you seniors given registration in the court for you to get the registrations as well. Give it a try.

          • C.Sugumaran says:

            Dr Harshita the md Dr course in Vinayaka mission medical college at Salem is also not yet recognised. Mci have issued a letter to them that they should not admit fresh batches from 2016. But the above college has called for application for the above course this year also. This is a violation. The old students want to register their pg qualifications. Could you inform your case details. We can fight jointly

    52. Alex says:

      Dear Sir,

      Is there a fixed number of times MCI can do re inspection of PG courses or is it infinite number of times as along as the college can file appeal of inspection.

      Has there been any instance were a PG program or UG program been discontinued due to repeated failure of institution to upgrade the deficiency said by MCI?

      thank you for your time.

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        I don’t know about the number of times the inspection can be done by MCI.
        Derecgonition of the course means the course will be discountinued if MCI does not find the requirement fulfilled by the institute.

    53. Dr.vinu G says:

      Sir ,for secondary DNB they are not insisting that the primary diploma should have a recognition.But for the MD candidates from the same college to appear for final DNB they ask for course recognition by MCI.,which can’t be produced for a permitted only seat.My question is will the national board award DNB for successful candidates with their primary diploma in just a permitted seat by mCI?is it not an irony for the norms to be different for diploma and degree?

    54. vittal srinivasan says:

      my son has joined the ESIC medical college Gulbarga in 2013 (a central govt institute run college) and he is in his II year MBBS. Now it seems the MCI has not permitted the college to do admission this year( 2015) and last two years it has permitted admission. In this scenerio , let me know his future, what he can do and cannot do. whether his seat will be recognized after three years?.can he transfer his college.

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        His seat may or may not get recognized in 3 years. As MCI has not permitted the college this year, chances of recognition are reduced. I am not saaying it will not get recognized at all, but it might be delayed. In such cases there is nothing much you could do. Regarding tranfer to other college, transfer is only of couple of seats usually and that too of class toppers.

    55. kavg says:

      Hi Dr Koli

      Im an NRI student studying at a college which has not been recognised for the past 2 years. The recognition in the future seems extremely unlikely, i realise now that this effects my ability to not only apply for work outside of my state but also outside the country, which is of primary concern to me as my whole intention of studying in india was that once completed i would return to family who live abroad. What are the options for such a situation, its seems so unclear and quite frankly quite daunting knowing that ill have to be studying for another few more years and have such limitation after so much effort.

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        Hi Kavya,
        As mentioned in my email reply, 2nd tranfer of student to another institute seems like your only option. MCI recognition is not something which anyone could help with as it is beyond control of anyone.

    56. Dr.vinu G says:

      Sir,if a batch passes out now from a permitted seat and it gets recognition only after two years, will the recognition has a retrospective effect

    58. Sarath says:

      I wanted a someone to clear my doubt regrading the exemption criteria from MCI Screening test for FMG.

      A Person who is a citizen of India had done his Undergraduate medical degree in a MCI recognized medical college in Philippines, and now holds a postgraduate medical degree from USA and licensed practitioner in USA.
      NOW,will this person seeking temporary or permanent registration in MCI shall be exempted from MCI screening test as only his post-graduation degree is from USA, (in accordance with “Screening Test Regulations (Amendment), 2011”)????
      NOTE: Previously, He has never acquired permanent or provisional registration from MCI nor has written MCI screening test.

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        MCI website says “(4) Provided further that a person seeking provisional or permanent registration shall not have to qualify the Screening Test if he/she holds an Under Graduate medical qualification from Australia/Canada/New Zealand/United Kingdom/United States of America and the holder thereof also been awarded a Post Graduate medical qualification in Australia/Canada/New Zealand/United Kingdom/United States of America and has been recognized for enrolment as medical practitioner in that country”
        So looking at this statement, as person you mentioned has UG degree from Philippines, he has to appear for screening exam.

        • Sarath says:

          @ Dr. Paresh :
          [1] If he is required to qualify MCI screening test, then should he undergo 1 year internship in any hospitals in India like any other foreign medical undergraduates after clearing MCI screening test to get permanent registration in MCI ??
          [2] and if so, even after doing residency in USA , getting license to practice in USA and getting board certification in the same country, such a senior person made to do one year internship like any other Foreign medical undergraduate in an Indian hospital. how is it acceptable?????
          [3] wont he have better experience in his field if has undergone all these scrutinization in USA ,and what is the point in testing his knowledge through an screening test here again???

          this means he cannot come back to India to practice here without these hurdles????

    59. Raj says:

      Hello Sir,
      I completed my MD degree in 2012 and the MCI recognized the course in 2013 with the statement in their website saying that the course is recognized when the degree is granted on or after 2013. What is this mean, Is my 2012 degree is also recognized.

      Thanks for all your help.

      My private college’s details on MCI website for mbbs course is like this
      Recognized (Issued discharge notice for excess admissions in management quota over and above sanctioned intake capacity.) (Previously under Barkatullah University, Bhopal)
      Is this seat okay?
      Please help
      Thank you

    61. viru says:

      is there any perticular number of attemp to pass mbbs ?? or one can give as many attempt as he want to pass mbbs course??
      is there any rule regarding passing first mbbs in 4 attempts??
      according to current regulation one can complete mbbs course in how many years??

    62. Abhi says:

      My sons medical college was started in got permission for mbbs in that year and the next 2014 and 2015 the college got permission by filing a case in supreme court against MCI.the college is not recognised for mbbs but it is a permitted one.My son is in his first year mbbs so are their chances for that college .so are their chances for the college to get recognised in future

      Please let me also know if a student passed mbbs from permitted seat gets registration done in MCI

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        Chances of permitted seats getting recognition is dependent on the quality of infrastructure and faculty in that institute. MCI has certain standards and requirements, and only when these are fullfilled, the institute gets recognition. So I cannot comment about the future but one thing I can say is that if the institute is involved too much in selling the seats, it’s primary aim is money and they are not interested in seats getting the recognition. But still it is very difficult to predict these kind of things.

    63. Abhi says:

      Can a candifate done his mbbs in a permitted seat can he write USMLE , the PGCET of the state he lives.
      If he does his PG outside India can he come back and practise in India

    64. Rahul puri says:

      Hello sir my question is
      After how much time can a college apply for recognition after the failure of the previous inspection(permitted college through which 1st batch has just given the final prof exams)

    65. saksham sharma says:

      Sir i joined mbbs course from a private medical college in up in 2011 on a permitted sear.Our was first batch.After this only next batch got permission in 2012.Since then there are no further permission on infrastructure ground.Will we get mci registration number? Will we be able to write entrance exam?

        • Dr.DP says:

          What happens in the case where students get shifted to the recognised colleges.For eg.the 2010-11 batch of Dd medical college.Are their degrees considered from a recognised college or their parent college’s recognition status is their degree’s fate?

    66. Dr Shreyans says:

      sir i want to know that if i do pg from permitted college n if seat does not get recognize after completing my pg should i get registration from rajasthan state or mci and if seat is canceeled than my degree is valid or not

    67. amit says:

      Sir, wanted to confirm whether the recognition process for a permitted seat is only done when the next PG batch is appearing for final exams or it could be done anytime once the facilities have improved?

    68. Anant says:

      Sir the exit test of mbbs has also been cleared for all India registration.Does this mean that a permitted seat MBBS can register to MCI if he clears that test..Or MCI will add “MBBS from recognised college” in the eligibikity criteria to sit in that exam???

    69. bennie christene james says:

      I registered in tamil nadu medical council . My problem is that they did not receive any list from our university. So they made sign a letter stating that if I don’t give them list by December I should abide to the mci rules. Please suggest. My friends have registered without any problem from the same medical council. According to them whoever comes first is recognised.

    71. Preetika says:

      Sir I am MBBS final year student of the college which is MCI permitted. I want to clear that If my college doesnot get recognition will I be able to do my internship and whether later on I can practice in my state only?

    72. dr.Indraj Singh says:

      sir,if one is registered for MBBS in Maharashtra medical council from a recognised seat for mbbs. if he does post graduation in maharashtra at a permitted seat (not recognised), Can he practice for his speciality on the basis of mbbs registration in maharashtra or anywhere in country with or without display on prescription pad? Why MCI does not give permission after fulfilling the criteria of recognition by an institute?can an mbbs do any treatment which he has learnt from PG course at unrecognised but permitted seat?

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        Officially you need a permanent registration of additional qualification of the specialty to practice it that particular specialty. For getting the additional qualification, you should have degree from a recognised institute.

    73. Rajan says:

      my daughter got admission in MBBS in 2014,in private recognized college but during mci inspection in 2016 they find glaring irregularties .pl clarify me if college derecognised in any circumstances ,her degree will be treated as recognized or not

    74. siddharth says:

      so pg from a permitted seat cannot do superspeciality or govt teaching job. so do they get permanent registration or not with the pg qualification? m asking ths bcoz u said sir we can practise in private and even that requires permanent registration….. plz reply sir

    75. Rashique says:

      Sir i am studying in a private medical college,which is not recognised..till 2014 our college was permitted for intake of 150 started in the year 2011..last year unfortunately we didnt get permission for 2015-16 my final year exams got over waiting for the result..still we didnt get recognition,we are waiting for the inspection..incase we didnt get recognition what about our future..can we do internship if not it the end of my doctor dream….kindly reply

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        The internship can be done on provisional registration as well which does not require a recognized seat. For permanent registration, you need a recognized degree. So unless your course is recognized by MCI, you cannot get permanent registration and thus you cannot officially practice.

        • Rash says:

          If my college is getting recognition during my internship period ..there wont be any prblm for my official practise ryt??

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        Only thing which could happen is that permitted seat will remain permitted only and will not get recognized. You can ask your dept to do all the necessary things to clear the MCI inspection.

      Kindly give ur expert opinion whether these permitted seats gona be registered taking in to account present status of lhmc

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        Due to increase in PG seats, many of them will be permitted only. If it is a govt institute with good infrastructure they will get recognized in the the end. Such kind og issues usually arise in private institutes where they do not have faculty or infrastructure to go through MCI inspection and get recognition.

      sir,not only our college ,mci had denied recognition to all the colleges which it had inspected ,sir one more query ,can we register our degree with the state medical council without recognition? ,how can mci mci deny recognition to all the colleges it inspected ,as per our college sources all the documents ,everything was perfect .

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        No, for medical council registration you need a recognition.
        MCI can reject any number of college if they do not meet its standard of Medical education. When MCI does this, they usually give reasons for not recognition or de-recognition.

    86. DR AVIK DEB says:

      Sir I took seat in MD Pharmacology(Private) which is permitted under sec 10(A) act….I am from second batch…now as a rule mci will come after 3 years when the first batch will appear for final year exam.But the main thing is after me college is not getting students in this course. So if college is unable to get students further whether my seat will be remain permitted?? If college can fullfil all the departmental requirements as per mci rules except no students admitted after 2 batches , whether mci can deny to upgrade to recognition from permitted seat?

      hi sir

      i m dr vaibhav jain , my father has done dmrd which was of 1 year duration from amritsar in 1982 which at that time was only allowed to practice in punjab only.

      You said in your blog that if permitted seat gets recognised in future , then retrospectively earlier seat also gets recognised and i think all the seats of radiology in amritsar is recognised.

      Now my father wants to practice in rajasthan but RMC refusing to register.

      What to do??

      Kindly reply,thanks

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        I am not sure whether this rule is applicable for such old seats. Best way to test is to apply for a MCI registration number. If MCI gives it then he will face no issues in practicing anywhere in India.

    88. Saksham Sharma says:

      I have successfully completed my final year mbbs exam from a permitted seat of mci. Now up state medical council in month of April started my internship but after a period of one month they are declining me provisional registration number. Our college management says that we should continue with our internship and provisional registration numbers will be allotted in due course when our college gets recognised by mci.
      But sir our college didn’t get any batch from past three years
      Can state medical council deny us provisional registration numbers
      Should we continue our internship without provisional registration numbers.
      Kindly please reply

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        I don’t know if, even for provisional registration there is MCI recognition requirement.
        And without provisional registration legally you cannot do internship. But most of the students do their internship without provisional registration and apply for it in the end of their internship.

I searched for the colleges of Chhattisgarh on IMED directory. It only showed the old ones…not the new ones which started about 2 years ago.

    94. Dr. Pallavi K. says:

      Dear Sir, (Apologies it is a repeated question!)
      I have completed my MD Pathology (2011-2014) on a MCI permitted seat from Sri Vasatrao Naik Govt Medical College, Yavatmal (Maharastra). The Seat is still permitted (as on June 2016) (students are being admitted) and not yet been recognized. I am told that i can’t practice my profession (in other states). Today, my application has been rejected (at the stage of certificate verification) at ESIC medical college and hospital for Assistant Professor position, citing my degree is not yet recognized. I have few questions. Kindly address them, i appreciate your patience and time.

      1. The college Dean (when i contacted him) tells me that they are trying to improve the facilities and they will apply for the MCI inspection once they improve the infrastructure and so on. My question is: Will my seat get recognized retrospectively (as i completed the course in 2011- 2014 itself) as and when the MCI recognizes the seat for the college. If not, what should i be doing?

      2. What will happen to my degree, if the MCI declines the recognition? Can i write to the MCI authorities?

      3. Can i bring the pressure on the college, explaining about my lost opportunities and agony being cause thereby.

      I appreciate your time!

      Best regards
      Dr. Pallavi K

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        1. If your college does fulfil all the MCI requirements then your degree will get recognized as well, as recognition is from retrospective effect.
        2. If MCI denies recognition there is nothing you can do other than filing a court case against the college and the authorities responsible to do the needful for meeting the MCI recognition.
        3. Pressure can be brought about by court only. Or may be powerful politicians.

          SIr, I am Debayan Dasgupta, A second year PGt of NRS medical College, Kolkata. Our seat was started on 2011 and yet to be recognized. This year, They did not allow to admit new PG seats, though our department did not receive any derecognition letter or any such update on MCI website, in the pg committee compliance report. They are yet to reply our latest compliance report.

          My questions are,
          1. Did they derecognize the seats.?
          2.Is there any chance to restart the admission next year or we shall have to apply for fresh seats??
          3. is there any chance to get recognition status in future if we again send compliance??

          Thanking you,

    96. Debayan Dasgupta says:

      Sir, I am a MD Radio-diagnosis PGT at NRS medical college, Kolkata. The seats were opened in 2011 and yet to be recognized by MCI. . In the last COMPLIANCE report sent on March, 2016 they wrote,”Compliance is not satisfactory.” due to shortage of one Assistant prof. ..We sent a reply but we are yet to get response for their behalf..but From this year the admission by MCI of PG students have been stopped.
      Does that mean the seats have been derecognized??
      is there any chance of getting recognition of the 2 seats if we further send compliance?? Please reply. We are in immense stress.

    97. Arunava says:

      Sir, I passed MD Microbiology in 2012 and joined the same college as assistant professor in May 2012. I have completed 4 yrs & 2 months as assistant professor and have adequate number of publications to satisfy MCI eligibility criteria for associate professor. My MD degree was permitted during these years and has recently been recognized by MCI in 2016.
      In 2014 MCI inspection: I submitted MCI declaration form as assistant professor and I was accepted as assistant professor.
      in 2015: I submitted MCI declaration form as assistant professor but I was accepted as tutor (designation changed by MCI assessor) as my MD degree was not recognized.
      However, my profile in MCI faculty database is categorized as assistant professor. In this scenario, I am confused regarding my teaching and work experience.
      1. Is it possible that my work experience of last 4 yrs will be counted as assistant professor?
      2. Am I eligible for the post of associate professor in any other state / medical college in India?
      3. What can I do to confirm my eligibility?
      Kindly give your opinion…

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        This is a complicated case but if the seat is now recognised, you should be eligible for AP post. But the work experience as Associate Professor is doubtful and I think you should file an RTI to MCI for clarification on this matter.

    98. Sunil says:

      Sir my son has completed BS in 2014 in Phillipines Cebu in South Western university which is now not recognised by MCI so he changed the college which is Cebu institute of medicine will he get eligibility by MCI or changing college will affect on eligibility???

    100. Girish says:

      Sir, i joined for ms ent under merit quota in 2013 and passed out in 2016. Here in our college there are 2 seats. One seat recognized in 2010. Other seat permitted in 2011. One seat is under management quota. when i checked on mci site it shows like dis..”Recognized when degree granted on or after March, 2010. Seat increased from 01 to 02 from 2012-13 u/s 10(A).”
      I have 2 doubts. my seat recognized? (As mci recognized in 2010 and 5years make it till 2015 and not 2016) or as mci came in 2011 for permitting a new seat so from 2011 till 2016)?
      2.which seat is having chance for recognition..merit or management??

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        Recognition of the seats depends on the subsequent inspections done by MCI in your institute. MCI website should give you details of the present status. Even the status of the permitted seat. There is nothing like separate recognition for merit and management quota seats.

And can you please provide me your email or any other mode through which can I clear my will be a great help from your side… waiting for your reply..thank you

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        Hi, if the PG degree is not MCI recognized, you cannot practice as a specialist doctor. As your UG degree is MCI recognized, you can practice as MBBS doctor. You can ask your queries out here. It will be helpful for others as well.

    112. Anju says:

      Dear Dr. Paresh,
      I have done my PG diploma in Pathology 7 yrs back from a govt. college seat which unfortunately is not recognized due to the lapse on the part of the college to ask for renewal. Now they are not able to go for MCI recognition for the said seat as no more students are joining the course. In this senario can I do something to get my seat recognized or have to give up on that front.?
      Olease do give some insight in this matter. Thanks

    113. Rohit Singh says:

      sir i have a doubt regarding who will get the recognised seat in a pg institute…for example if a institute has total of 12 seats of 7 are recognised and 5 are permitted..who will get the preference for recognised seats..a student from all india neet counselling or state counselling..
      if a student gets a seat from state quota whose rank is better than one from all india neet counselling, will he get the recognised seat or the one who got poor rank and got the seat in same dept from all india counselling…as someone told me all the recognised seats goes to student from all india neet counselling irrespective of their rank followed by student from state counselling.

    114. Megha K says:

    118. Vinay says:

      Hello sir,
      Please reply me Asap.
      I’m student from MiMS indore.
      Our batch got the permission for mbbs admission for the academic year 2016-17,i’m now in 2nd year and currently our college is debarred for next two academic years.i.e. 17-18& 18-19, So i would like to know that , will my degree be recognised or not ? As we are the first batch of our institute.
      Will i be able to register at MCI for licence ?
      Is there any rules like this : that we will get the mbbs degree but not able to register ourselves at the mci for practitioner licence until our institute gets renewal for 5 batches for mbbs admission.
      Best regards,

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        I don’t think your batch would face any issues. At the end of your course your degree should ger recognition. If not then you can take the legal action. To register with MCI for permanent registration, your course has to be recognized. I have not heard of any such rule you mentioned.

    122. Dr nisha says: dch seat was permitted ..but i was allowed to give sec dnb entrance.givey theory exam ..passed and finally the practicals and now the dnb board are not declaring the result stating my seat is permitted.please help

      A permitted degree holder is he allowed to practice in his own state and do private corporate hospitals hire these degree holders for jobs ?

    125. Sukrutha Sahu Jaya says:


      What happens to the recognition status of a student admitted against a PG seat, who is admitted after the Institution applies for renewal of recognition, but the same was declined by the MCI twice, once before and once after the admission of the student?

      Is it possible to renew the MCI recognition after it is declined twice?

      will the MCI renew the recognition from a previous date retrospectively and recognise such admissions or the renewal of recognition will only be prospective from the next academic year ?

      Thank you sir.

        • Sukrutha Sahu Jaya says:

          But sir, what about the students who are admitted to the course before renewal of recognition? Will they be allowed to practice?
          You have said failure to seek timely renewal from MCI will invariably results in stoppage of admission. And on MCI website the letter which declined renewal says any student admitted against the pg seat before renewal of recognition Will be considered illegal and irregular and will not be recognised.
          Will the MCI renew the recognition retrospectively in future and regularise such admissions? Please reply sir. Thank you.

          • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

            MCI regulations are not very clear on this but in one of the RTI I had filed, they replied that recognition is retrospective in effect. So even previous seats should be recognized.

    126. Aakash says:

      Sir I take admission in Dr BSA medical college rohini delhi in MBBS course on July 6 2018 which is affiliated by ggsipu , I check the status of college on mci site under topic list of college teaching mbbs . It is written over there that permitted for admission for 2018-19 what is the chances for the college to get recognition by MCI and what if the college get not recognised till the completion of my MBBS …. What after that? Plz plz reply must ……………..

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        Chances depend on the quality of infrastructure by your institute. If the degree is not recognized you cannot register in the Medical Council and thus you cannot practica anywhere in the country.

      Hi sir,
      i am admitted in the first 250 mbbs seats in 2013 which was previously 150 and after me 5 batches have joined and now they have reduced it to 150 seats , i have finished my internship now. my question is
      1.Whether my seat is recognised?
      2.Can I take PG seat in different state, because my home state is different?
      3.which 150 of our 250 will be recognised.
      please clear my doubts

      • Dr. Paresh Koli says:

        There are no sure answers to your questions. Recognition is granted only after the MCI inspection, so inquire with your college if this is done or not.
        About which seats among 250 are recognized, some MCI RTI replies say that is it on 1st come 1st serve basis. Even this you can inquire with the college.

      sir there is any rule which states that students from all india quota will be given preference for allotment of recognised seat over students taking admission from state qouta. Say there are 8 seats for md medicine,5 recognised and 3 permitted.4 students taking admission through AIQ n 1 student from state with best rank will get recognised seats. please reply
      thanks in advance

    133. SATYA NARAYAN says:

      Dear Sir,

      I refer to the Gazette of India (PART III—Section 4) No. 144 dated 5th April 2018 amending ‘Postgraduate Medical Education Regulations, 2000’

      This is available in MCI website (URL below):

      At pege 8 clause 2 (2) it states that “In the event of deficiencies being found………………..Further, in such cases; recommendation
      shall be made to the Central Government to include the qualifications in the First Schedule of the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956 only in respect of first four batches of Postgraduate Degree Courses and three batches of Postgraduate Diploma courses.”

      In view of this if a PG aspirant takes admission this year (in 2019) in a permitted seat for PG Medical in an existing course of existing deemed university (seat permitted w.e.f. 2019-20 increasing annual intake for the PG course of such deemed university) , will he/she be getting recognized PG degree on completion of course assuming the worst case that for some reason the permitted seat did not get recognition because of any deficiency?

      As I understand the gazette mentions that first four batches of Postgraduate Degree Courses (in permitted seats) will get recognition.

      I shall appreciate your views on the same.

      my college has 3 recognized md medicine seats adn 9 permitted seat , what happen to last 9 students when my college didn’t get recognition

    135. P Agarwal says:

      Hello Sir,
      I am pursuing MBBS from a private medical college in MP. Our Batch is the first batch and it is MCI permitted but not recognised. Also it has failed renewal and no new batches are admitted for the consecutive 3 years. What will be the consequences on our degree and future? Are we eligible for admission in any pg college. Are we eligible for practicing in an government setup or have any sort of practice for that matter? please answer.

    136. Gaming Guy says:

      Hello Sir,
      I am a student of GIMSH, West Bengal. I took admission in Oct 2016. My college got debarred for 2 yrs 2017 – 2018 & 2018 – 2019 and this year (2019) after mci visit the website states that “not permitted for admission in 2019 – 2020”.
      I am currently studying in 3rd prof part – 1. So, my question is :
      1) considering the college failed to get permission to take admission this year (2019), next year and during my internship year (2021). The degree that I will receive in March 2022 will be valid throughout the India or only in the state of West Bengal? Can I appear in NEET PG 2022 with the above said degree and participate and join in the PG counselling?

      2) If I complete my internship from my college which failed to get recognised and permitted to take new admissions during my intern year . Do I have to wait for years to get permission and recognition from the mci to my college before I can practice ?

      3) Does relocation of students to different medical colleges occur in 3rd year or at the beginning of 4th year?

    137. tridev samanta says:

      sir i had a doubt as to if an individual takes a permitted seat ,will he or she be eligible for applying for fellowships abroad ??

    139. Abhinash says:

      Sir, firstly thank you for starting such a blog. You seem to have a better understanding about the issues better than most of us, so i would like to ask you this one question: can you clearly state what happens to the ongoing permitted seat candidates if say the institution fails in its attempt to get registration the first time around? for eg: if the MCI doesn’t recognise the seats when the first batch passes out after 3 years in PG course, what happens to the first and second years? do they get thrown out or is it like everyone has to wait for the seats to be recognised? Also, can they practise anywhere in india or is it true that you get restricted to the state of the college that you do the course in?
