The Municipal Administration Minister KT Rama Rao urged Ministers and MLAs to orchestrate grand celebrations in their respective district headquarters to commemorate the historic inauguration of nine medical colleges, all set to co-occur in nine different districts on September 15. Rama Rao proudly announced that Telangana would become the sole state in India to house a government medical college in each district. These medical colleges are scheduled to be unveiled in Jangaon, Nirmal, Kamareddy, Karimnagar, Sircilla, Asifabad, Bhupalpally, Vikarabad, and Khammam.
Minister Rama Rao emphasized that these institutions would produce exceptional doctors and elevate the standard of medical services across the districts. During the teleconference, Health Minister Harish Rao highlighted that Telangana had experienced a significant transformation in its MBBS seat availability since 2014, when it was at the bottom of the list. Now, it proudly holds the highest number of MBBS seats in the country.
He further explained that there are 22 MBBS seats for every 1,00,000 individuals in the state, an achievement unmatched elsewhere in India. Notably, he revealed that Telangana had contributed 43 per cent of the total increase in MBBS seats nationwide this year.
