The estimated budget for the upgradation of each college is Rs. 200 crore out of which Rs. 120 crores will be funded by the central government and Rs. 80 crore will be funded by the concerned state government. The total estimated cost for the upgradation of all the 13 institutes in Rs. 2,600 crore. The entire process will be completed by three years i.e. 36 months.

Government Medical Institutes Selected for Upgradation:-



  • GMC, Bilaspur
  • GMC, Jagdalpur



  • GMC, Surat
  • GMC, Bhavnagar

Madhya Pradesh:-

  • GMC, Indore


  • GMC, Cuttack


  • GMC, Jaipur

Uttar Pradesh:-

  • GMC, Agra
  • GMC, Kanpur

The upgradation of these institutes will facilitate tertiary care facilities. These institutes will serve as composite centers for multi-skilling of health workers, professional education, treatment, and care. The upgradation also includes the building of super specialty blocks and trauma centres or any other necessary facilities. Under PMSSY, 58 colleges have been approved for upgradation and the works of 16 colleges have been completed.

Cool, interesting and funny. An ardent lover of animals and gets a kick out of Chetan Bhagat and Amish Tripathi novels. My favourite novel is 'The God of Small Things' written by Arundathi Roy.
