MARB’s remark on Kokrajhar Medical College

The MARB has examined all the reports produced by the assessor and remarks of the UG Experts Group on the infrastructure facilities of the college, laboratories, libraries, hostels, hospitals, and the availability of the faculty members. The MARB (NMC) has to finally decide on the requests to uptake 100 students in the 2023 – 2024 academic year and for that, it has decided to obtain undertaking/ essential documents for the issue of a Letter of Permission. The undertaking should contain:

  • Confirmation to provide all infrastructural facilities in terms of teaching and non-teaching staff, building, equipment, and hospital facilities per National Medical Commission norms.
  • No student should be admitted to the courses till the formal permission of the MARB.

Note: Though the acceptance has been done through the online hearing, until and unless formal permission is approved, the admission process won’t occur.

Till 2017, 726 seats were available for medical intake in UG courses, and in the year 2022, 900 medical seats were available for admission.
