Denying of Permission to Medical Colleges in Tamil Nadu will affect the psyche of already admitted students in the below-mentioned colleges.


This is startling that the Tamil Nadu Medical colleges are denied permission to admit MBBS students from this academic year for 2 colleges and for more than 1 academic year in other colleges.

Loss of 600 MBBS seats.

But again gain of 500 MBBS seats for 3 medical colleges in Tamil Nadu & Pondicherry combine in 2 academic years.

Good news for some management of private medical colleges and bad news for some other medical colleges.

Good news for 3 medical colleges in Tamil Nadu. The 3 are


  • Sree Balaji Medical College and Hospital, affiliated to Bharath University – permitted to increase seats from 150 to 250.
  • Pondicherry Institute of Medical Sciences and Research, affiliated to Pondicherry University – permitted to admit 150 seats.
  • Annapoorna Medical College and Hospital in Salem – permitted to admit 150 from 2017-18.

Bad news for 4 medical colleges of Tamil Nadu. The 4 are

  • Annaii Medical College, Pennalur, Kancheepuram debarred for admitting the student for 2017-18 and 2018-19.
  • Madha Medical College denied permission to admit students in 2018-19

The Denying of Permission to Medical Colleges in Tamil Nadu

By observing the above developments, the toll it is going to take on the presently studying student’s psychology is one of the concerns. This needs to be addressed.

What about the parents, guardians and the students who have paid exorbitant amounts of fees only to see their ward become a doctor and serve the humanity.

The regulating authorities might be scoring a good average of permission with respect to policing the private medical colleges.

But what about the mental impression it might be creating in the minds of the number of doctors who are presently pursuing MBBS course in such “Denied Permission” medical colleges in Tamil Nadu.

Request to the necessary authorities, you may have won some brownie points. But do keep the stress and depression of the already enrolled past students in such medical colleges.

They are pursuing their MBBS courses with insecurity and doubt with respect to recognition of the medical colleges.

Thus denying of permission of medical colleges in Tamil Nadu also does have a mental stress on already enrolled students.
