Ms. Jayalalithaa inaugurated the medical college, set up at a cost of Rs 200 crore in the Omandurar Government Estate, through video conferencing from the state secretariat.

This was the 20th medical college in the state and the first to be established in the state capital since 1960, an official release said.

The city has three other government medical colleges — Madras Medical College, Stanley Medical College and Kilpauk Medical College.

As many as 410 appointments, including medical and para-medical staff, besides teaching professionals had been made here, it said. The Medical Council of India (MCI) had approved admission of 100 students in MBBS course.

The number of MBBS seats in the state had increased by 710 in the last four years and stands at 2,655 presently, it said.

The government had allocated Rs 12.24 crore towards procuring required medical equipment for the college, it said.
