In the last academic session, the Zoram Medical College (ZMC) was allotted 100 seats for the MBBS course and the same number of medical seats will be allotted again to the institution in the new academic session of this year.
An official statement issued by the Mizoram Higher and Technical Education department said the Centre has ceased allotment of seats to Mizoram under central quota for pursuing medical courses as the State has its medical institution – Zoram Medical College (ZMC).
The state Mizoram enjoyed 18 seats in total for pursuing MBBS and 7 seats for BDS across various medical institutions across the country during the last academic session 2018-2019.
The allotment of seats under the Central quota has been automatically ceased with more establishment of the medical colleges in the State. In the eye of the Centre, Mizoram is self-dependent as regard medical seats. Hence, the Central quota has been automatically ceased, the statement added.
Though MBBS seats under the Central quota have been ceased, the State will continue to enjoy 5 seats under the quota for BDS in the new academic session.
