Doctor-Population Ratio implies the number of doctors available for every 1000 people. As per the ministry, at present, there are a total of about 10.4 lakhs registered doctors in India and around 8.33 lakhs are actively available for service (assuming 80% availability). It is government’s aim to increase current doctor-population ratio from 0.63:1000 to 1:1000, which is also a WHO prescribed norm, Choubey said.
Government is implementing a Centrally Sponsored Scheme which seeks to establish new medical colleges in 58 under-served districts of India. The reply mentioned that in the last three years 13,004 new MBBS seats have been added and at present, there is an intake capacity of a total of 67,352 MBBS students across 479 medical colleges in India.
The minister told that the efforts to increase UG and PG medical seats are taken in a systemic manner and are being supplemented by ensuring Minimum Standard Requirements (MSRs) which includes taking care of land requirements, faculty, staff, bed/bed strength and other infrastructure pertinent for setting up of new medical colleges.
