"The MCI has recommended the Letter of Permission for setting up the college," he said.
Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla initiated the institution's establishment keeping in mind the rising number of medical aspirants in the state.
Mr. Fimate said:, "Mizoram has been getting just 10 seats every year in the Regional Institute of Medical Sciences, (RIMS), Imphal. It is a central college. The medical aspirants of Mizoram find it almost impossible to get a seat in other medical colleges in India."
The college will initially capacitate 100 students, 85 seats reserved for Mizo students.
