NMC revokes licence of BJP MP Sujana Chowdary’s medical college

HYDERABAD: In a major setback to BJP ex-MP Sujana Chowdary, the National Medical Commission (NMC) on Tuesday revoked the licence of his private medical college in Ghanpur of Medchal-Malkajgiri district and directed the management to stall the admissions for undergraduate courses in 2023-24 academic year.

According to reports, Sujana Chowdary established the MediCiti Institute of Medical Sciences in 2002, spread on 40 acres of area. From 2012-13, the Medical Council of India (MCI) has given its approval for medical admissions in the college. At present, 750 students are pursuing MBBS and 150 postgraduate courses. In addition to this, several out-patients throng the 13 departments of the hospital, associated with the college.

Every year, the NMC, under the supervision of MCI, conducts an annual inspection in various medical colleges across the country. During its inspection, the NMC examined whether the infrastructure facilities were accessible to the students and teachers, postings were based on the ratio of students and the number of patients thronging the teaching hospitals in the colleges.

It has been found that many violations had taken place in the private medical college owned by Sujana Chowdary and the management was acting against the rules. A notice has been served by MCI to the college management in this regard before eventually revoking its licence.
