Mahanadi Coalfields Limited (MCL), a subsidiary of Coal India Limited, has put on fast track the finalisation of a reputed organisation in health care services to run its state-of-the-art 500-bedded medical institute set up at Talcher coalfields in Odisha.
The company has taken initiative to invite reputed medical institutions for running the medical college in Talcher after the Odisha government expressed its inability to run the Mahanadi Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (MIMSAR), Talcher.
“As the entire infrastructure for the medical college and hospital is ready, MCL had now constituted a high powered committee to complete the process for running the medial institute from next session,” MCL Chairman-cum-Managing Director B N Shukla said.
Built for Rs 492 crores under Corporate Social Responsibly (CSR), MIMSAR will have 100 seats for MBBS, selections to which will be done through National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET-UG), which is likely to commence with the session beginning 2020-21.
The Committee has gathered inputs from various organisations, like PSUs running medical colleges, super speciality institutes, charitable trusts, health care foundations, hospital chains. for preparation of selection criteria for inviting Expression of Interest (EoI). “ Shukla said many organisations in health care services and business have shown interest in running the medical college in Talcher”.(UNI)
