Dimapur | August 20 

Nagaland witnesses a momentous occasion as the Nagaland Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (NIMSR), the state’s inaugural medical college, commences the admission process for its first batch of 100 MBBS students. From August 20 to August 28, aspiring medical scholars can enroll between 10 AM to 5 PM at the NIMSR Campus’ Academic Block, according to a report from All India Radio (AIR) News Kohima.

Professor Dr. Soumya Chakraborty, the Director cum Dean of NIMSR, highlighted that the classes for the inaugural MBBS batch, slated to begin in the first week of September, will be eagerly anticipated.

In a successful endeavor, NIMSR has filled 85 seats with students from Nagaland and 15 seats from the All India Quota. Notably, State counseling for MBBS took place on August 18.

For all admission-related inquiries, candidates are encouraged to visit the NIMSR website at https://nimsr.nagaland.gov.in/ or contact the responsible officers at 7060255256 or 8787759380.

The MBBS Admission fees for the academic year 2023-24, outlined in the ‘Fees Structure & Checklist’ by NIMSR, totals around Rs 1,39,00, including refundable deposits. However, this sum excludes examination, miscellaneous, and registration fees. Additionally, students opting for mess facilities will incur separate monthly charges. It’s crucial to note that the fees will undergo an annual increase of 10%, as detailed in the checklist.

Nagaland’s inaugural medical college was established under the Centrally Sponsored Scheme (CSS) for the ‘Establishment of new medical colleges attached with existing district/referral hospitals.’ This initiative places emphasis on underserved regions and aspirational districts devoid of government or private medical colleges.

The funding structure involves a 90:10 ratio between the Union Government and State Governments for North Eastern and Special Category States, while it’s 60:40 for others. This scheme’s approval encompassed 157 Government medical colleges, including two in Nagaland at Kohima and Mon.

Situated in Phriebagei, Kohima, the NIMSR secured approval under Phase-I of the scheme, with a total sanctioned cost of Rs 189 crore. The Union Government contributed Rs 170.10 crore, with the State Government’s share amounting to Rs 18.90 crore.

Meanwhile, Mon’s Government Medical College was endorsed under Phase-III of the scheme, requiring a total investment of Rs 325 crore. The central allocation of Rs 292.50 crore includes Rs 242.50 crore that has already been disbursed to the State Government. This information was shared by Dr. Bharati Pravin Pawar, Union Minister of State in the Ministry of Health and Family, in a written response to the Lok Sabha on August 4.
