The MCI slashed MBBS seats of three private medical colleges- Hi-Tech Medical College & Hospital Rourkela, Sardar Rajas Medical College Hospital Research Centre, Jaring, and Kalinga Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS), Bhubaneswar for the current academic year.

While 100 seats each of Hi-Tech Medical College & Hospital, Rourkela, and Sardar Rajas Medical College Hospital Research Centre Jaring have been slashed, 50 seats of Kalinga Institute of Medical Sciences have been slashed.

The Supreme Court had last year directed KIMS to admit 100 students against an intake capacity of 150 MBBS seats.

Similarly, a case pertaining to alleged illegal admission in Hi-Tech Medical College & Hospital, Rourkela in the year 2015-16 is pending in the apex court.
