In reply to a query sent by TOI, the AFMC stated: “The college’s undergraduate wing started in 1962 with an intake of 120 medical students, including 20 for girls. Later, the capacity was increased to 140 seats, including five seats for foreign students. A letter of permission has now been received from the health ministry to increase the intake to 150 medical cadets from the academic session 2018-19. This increase will cater to the increasing requirement of the Armed Forces.”

The ministry’s letter states, “The permission is accorded initially for a period of one year and will be renewed on yearly basis subject to verification of achievement of annual targets as indicated in the college’s scheme. This process of renewal of permission will continue till such time the infrastructure and expansion of hospital facilities are completed as per norms of the Medical Council of India. The next batch of students against increased intake shall be admitted only after obtaining permission of the central government.”
