The government partnered with Rajiv Samajik Shiksha Sewa Sansthan to build a medical college in Mau, and with Gyan Chetna Educational Society for another in Shamli.

Two agreements were signed between the Uttar Pradesh government and private entities to establish medical colleges in Shamli and Mau districts. These collaborations are based on the public-private partnership (PPP) model. “Yogi Adityanath, the top leader in the state, led the event where the agreement was officially signed.”

The state government teamed up with Rajiv Samajik Shiksha Sewa Sansthan to establish a medical college in Mau district. Meanwhile, Gyan Chetna Educational Society will oversee the medical college in Shamli.

During the event, the state’s leader introduced a rating system by the Quality Council of India (QCI) for nursing and paramedical schools as part of the ‘Mission Niramaya’ initiative.

To improve the quality of these institutions, Adityanath gave certificates to eight newly selected institutions as part of the “Mentor-Mentee” program.

The chief minister expressed his delight at the progress in Mau. He commended the transformation of the area from a high-crime place to one with a new medical college. He also mentioned the medical college in Shamli, which used to experience a large number of people leaving the area. Adityanath called these developments a dream come true.

Mau district is in the eastern part of Uttar Pradesh, while Shamli is in the western part.

The chief minister highlighted the improvements in medical education and healthcare in the state. Before 2017, there were only 12 medical colleges in Uttar Pradesh. To meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s goal of having “one district-one medical college,” each district in the state is now getting its own medical college. Currently, 45 districts have functioning government medical colleges, and 16 more are under construction.

Adityanath criticized the previous governments for neglecting paramedical and nursing institutions. He noticed a lack of emphasis on improving education quality and felt worried about the state of the medical school. In response, the government initiated “Mission Niramaya” to address these issues. The mission selected 12 institutions as mentors. Ongoing reforms have upgraded eight more institutions as mentors, indicating the positive improvements in the system.

RP Singh, who works as the Secretary General of the Quality Council of India (QCI), praised the chief minister for having a great and motivating plan called “Mission Niramaya.” He mentioned that the NITI Aayog, impressed by Uttar Pradesh’s efforts, suggested implementing a similar system nationwide through the Indian Nursing Council. Singh also briefed the chief minister on the evaluation process followed by the QCI to determine the ratings.

Deputy Chief Minister and Minister for Health and Medical Education Brajesh Pathak stressed the importance of paramedical and nursing institutions. He thanked the state’s top leader for planning to create schools near medical colleges. The aim is to provide top-notch medical education across the state.

Adityanath stressed how important it is that the QCI’s quality ratings can motivate other institutions to get better. He stated that educational institutions should not compromise on quality.

The chief minister disclosed the government’s decision to establish medical colleges in 16 underserved districts of the state through the PPP model. Investors who are not part of the government have already been chosen for building medical colleges in Maharajganj and Sambhal. The construction work for these colleges is happening right now.
