Medical Education Minister Sharan Praksah Patil said on Monday that the state government would offer PG courses at Hassan and Mandya medical colleges.

He said it has plans to start the courses at Bidar and Raichur government colleges as the colleges have got permanent affiliation from the Medical Council of India (MCI).

In a written reply to Raghunath Rao Malkapure in the Legislative Council, he said the government, which is keen on starting medical colleges in Karwar, Kodagu, Koppal, Gadag, Gulbarga and Chamarajanagar, has invited tenders and started construction of  buildings. “The government is keen on starting the college from this academic year in Chamarajanagar, if it gets approval from MCI,” he added.

He said the government has sanctioned medical colleges in all six districts of Hyderabad-Karnataka region. “We have also started the recruitment of staff, purchased equipment like CT scan and provided 20 acres to comply with the observations made by the MCI team. However, the ensuing elections may delay the recruitment of staff and purchase of equipment,” he said.

Patil said the government would also appoint directors to medical colleges.

Centre of National Importance

In reply to M R Dowreswamy, Sharan Praksah Patil said KIDWAI hospital would be developed as ‘Centre of National Importance’ at a cost of `120 crore.

He said the government has submitted a proposal to the Centre in this regard and have apprised Union Health Minister Gulam Nabi Azad of developing Mandya, Gulbarga and Bangalore cancer hospitals as peripheral centres. The government would  order a probe into the alleged irregularities by the KIDWAI hospital director, he added.
