Chandigarh, September 23, 2020 (Yes Punjab News)

The Punjab Cabinet led by Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Wednesday gave approval to rename the Government Medical College, Kapurthala, as Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji State Institute of Medical Sciences and the Government Medical College, Hoshiarpur, as Shaheed Udham Singh State Institute of Medical Sciences Hoshiarpur.

Disclosing this here today, a spokesperson of the Chief Minister’s Office said that cabinet also accorded approval for registration of Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji State Institute of Medical Sciences Society, Kapurthala, and Shaheed Udham Singh State Institute of Medical Sciences Society, Hoshiarpur, to run these institutions efficaciously, as per the final Memorandum of Association and the Rules and Regulation of Society.

The Medical Education and Research Department was of the view that these upcoming Medical Sciences Institutes should be set up under Societies for better management as the existing GMCs at Patiala and Amritsar had been facing many operational challenges due to the fiscal stress faced by the state government.
