The Andhra Pradesh High Court Friday directed the Medical Council of India (MCI) to grant 50 additional MBBS seats each to three medical colleges under Osmania University and Kakatiya University, located in Telangana region of the state. The high court order came on a petition by the twin universities, challenging the MCI’s decision to not grant additional MBBS seats to their medical colleges for the academic year 2012-13.

The MCI cited factors like untidy toilets, malfunctioning lifts and inadequate out-patient wards for not granting more seats to Osmania Medical College in Hyderabad, Gandhi Medical College in Secunderabad and Kakatiya Medical College in Warangal. The court asked MCI to take a decision on granting additional seats in two days. It also asked medical colleges to address the issues, which led to the MCI rejecting their applications for additional seats.
