PPP model to be followed by medical colleges in Maharashtra

To increase the number of trained doctors in Maharashtra, its medical education department has decided to embrace the Public–Private Partnership (PPP) model.

Based on the PPP model, two medical colleges have already been planned. One will be located in Wadala and the other in Raigad. They are in partnership with the Mumbai Port Trust, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust and Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC).

A special committee headed by Medical Council of India (MCI) member Dr Ved Prakash Mishra has been set up for deciding the details. The department is supposed to send its proposal for approval to the MCI within the next three months.  

Maharashtra’s Wadia Hospital, which recently turned 90, was the first hospital and medical college to follow the PPP model. As of now, it is the only hospital which provides teaching courses based on the PPP model.
