This would result into creation of 10000 additional MBBS seats; and

(ii) Upgradation of existing district medical hospitals with the bed strength of 200 or more in underserved areas of the country with a Central Outlay of Rs.8457.4 crore out of total cost of10971.1 crore with the fund sharing ratio between the Central Government and State/UT to the tune of 90:10 for North Eastern and Special Category States and 75:25 for other states.
