New Delhi, July 30
Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Chandigarh and Jammu and Kashmir continue to remain underserved insofar as medical education infrastructure is concerned.
An analysis of the Health Ministry data ahead of the declaration of the NEET (UG) results for admission to MBBS courses shows that states and UTs in the region account for only 7 per cent of all medical colleges nationally and 6 per cent of MBBS seats.
Of the 612 medical colleges in India, Punjab and Haryana have 12 each, J&K 10, HP eight and Chandigarh one. The region has 43 colleges. Likewise, the disaggregation of MBBS seats spread across states shows that out of 91,927 MBBS seats up for grabs this year, there are only 5,627 in the region. Punjab has the highest 1,750 MBBS seats in the region, followed by Haryana’s 1,660, J&K’s 1,147, Himachal’s 920 and Chandigarh’s 150. A record 18,72,329 students registered for NEET-UG this year with the National Testing Agency, confirming 95 per cent attendance on the day of the exam, July 17. There are only 91,927 seats.
The data further shows that nearly 50 per cent of MBBS seats are located in Tamil Nadu (10,725), Karnataka (10,145), Maharashtra (9,895), UP (9,053) and Gujarat (5,700).
Sources said 3,495 additional MBBS seats were being created under a centrally sponsored scheme. The scheme covers 16 states, including Punjab (100 seats), Himachal 20 and J&K 60. Likewise, a separate centrally sponsored scheme is under way to increase the number of PG seats. Under this, the plan is to add 4,058 seats in 21 states in the first phase. Of these, 87 will be added in Punjab, 127 in Jammu and Kashmir and 17 in Himachal Pradesh.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Facebook owner Meta is quietly curtailing some of the safeguards designed to thwart voting misinformation or foreign interference in U.S. elections as the November midterm vote approaches.
It's a sharp departure from the social media giant's multibillion-dollar efforts to enhance the accuracy of posts about U.S. elections and regain trust from lawmakers and the public after their outrage over learning the company had exploited people’s data and allowed falsehoods to overrun its site during the 2016 campaign.
Announcing to go ahead with its plan to gherao the Himachal Pradesh secretariat on August 5, Sanyukt Kisan Manch, an umbrella body of farmers’ unions, rubbished the Jai Ram government’s notification to restore the old subsidy scheme on fungicides and reduction of GST on fruit packaging material. It described the offer as an ‘eyewash’ to placate agitating fruit growers while the opposition Congress extended its support to their agitation.
Five days after the unions sat across the table with chief minister Jai Ram Thakur and other government functionaries to discuss issues related to fruit growers, farm leaders claimed that the government was not ‘serious’ towards their problems.
Convener of manch Harish Chauhan, accompanied by heads of different unions, alleged that government was not paying heed to the 20-point demand charter it had submitted. “Whatever we have learnt so far is through media that the government has issued a notification to restore subsidy on pesticides and fungicides, but the development has come after 80% spraying has been done. Moreover, claiming subsidy is a cumbersome process for the farmers as there are a lot of formalities,” Chauhan added.
“We have only learnt from media that the government has reduced subsidy on cartons, but no notification has been issued yet,” he said, adding that if it happens, the price of cartons will be reduced merely by ₹5 to ₹6, whereas the increase was up to ₹25.
“Similarly, prices of trays have increased drastically,” he said, demanding the government to hold consultation with corrugated fibreboard carton manufacturers.
Apple growers are demanding MSP for their produce on the lines of Kashmir, where support price is fixed in accordance with the quality of apples -- ₹60 per kg for Grade A, ₹44 for Grade B and ₹24 for Grade C fruit.
The farmers’ leader also slammed the Congress government, saying that both the BJP and the Congress should include their issues in their election agenda. Chauhan also appealed to the farmers to join their protest call.
Former mayor and co-convener of Sanyukt Kisan Manch, Sanjay Chauhan, castigated the government and demanding to implement the APMC Act in letter and spirit to check the exploitation of farmers.
The union representatives also urged the government to increase the import duty on apples to 100%, strictly implement the APMC Act, 2005, and clear the pending dues of farmers.
Chauhan said a request was also made to waive the loans of farmers and constitute a committee of horticulture department, university experts and fruit growers to fix the price of apples in the CA stores of private companies and to make provision of reservation of 25% space for farmers’ crops in CA stores to keep apples.
STAMFORD — The first three days of the trial for former Stamford Democratic City Committee Chairman John Mallozzi featured testimony about how investigators concluded that Mallozzi apparently forged the signatures on multiple absentee ballot applications and envelopes.
Mallozzi, who led the DCC from 2012 to 2016, has been charged with 14 counts of second-degree forgery and 14 counts of committing false statements in absentee balloting — all in connection with the 2015 elections for seats on the Board of Finance, Board of Education and Board of Representatives. He was arrested in 2019, released on bond and pleaded not guilty to the charges.
By the time you turn 65, you probably have a good feel for what health insurance does and doesn’t cover. But Medicare is a different beast — and there are some surprising things that don’t fall under Medicare’s umbrella.
Medicare is the federal government’s health insurance coverage for people age 65 and older, and other people living with disabilities and certain chronic conditions. Here are seven things Medicare doesn’t cover:
If you opt for Original Medicare, both Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) and Part B (medical insurance) require out-of-pocket spending in the form of deductibles and coinsurance. If you have medical needs, this can get pricey, and there’s no out-of-pocket cap on Original Medicare spending.
“Many people on traditional Medicare get a Medigap plan to help cover those costs and make their out-of-pocket costs more predictable,” says Gretchen Jacobson, vice president of Medicare for The Commonwealth Fund, a private foundation with the mission of promoting a high-performing health care system.
If you enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, which is offered by private insurance companies that contract with the federal government, you’ll also be responsible for any deductibles, copays or coinsurance required when you seek health care. Although there’s an out-of-pocket maximum for Medicare Advantage, that limit can be as high as $7,550 in 2022.
Although Medicare Part A covers some dental services you may get as part of a hospital stay, basic dental care like cleanings, X-rays and fillings aren’t covered. If you want coverage, you’ll have to purchase a separate dental policy.
You may be able to get some coverage by purchasing a Medicare Advantage plan with dental benefits. “But those benefits can be limited, or Medicare Advantage plans can ask you to pay extra for those benefits,” says Lina Walker, vice president of health security for AARP’s Public Policy Institute.
Medicare doesn’t cover eye exams for glasses or contacts, or the eyeglasses or contacts themselves. Medicare Part B does cover one pair of glasses or contacts if you have cataract surgery. (After the Part B deductible of $233 in 2022, you’ll pay 20% of costs.)
Medicare also doesn’t cover hearing aids or the exams required for hearing aids. While there’s some language in the Build Back Better Act to add hearing aid coverage to Medicare, the act hasn’t made it through Congress. Medicare does cover diagnostic hearing exams if your doctor thinks you need them.
Original Medicare Parts A and B don’t offer coverage for prescription drugs. If you want prescription drug coverage, you must buy a Medicare Part D plan from a private insurance company or get prescription drug coverage from a Medicare Advantage plan that includes it.
Medicare drug coverage is optional, but if you choose to skip it and you don’t have other creditable drug coverage, you’ll pay a late enrollment penalty if you decide to enroll at a future time. You’ll pay this penalty for as long as you have Medicare drug coverage, so it’s worthwhile to make sure you get and keep qualified coverage once you’re eligible.
A person turning 65 today has about a 7-in-10 chance of needing long-term care at some point in the future, according to the Department of Health and Human Services, and it can be a big expense. But Medicare doesn’t cover long-term care if it’s the only care you need.
“This is an area where there might be some confusion, because people have heard that Medicare covers nursing services,” Walker says. Medicare does cover skilled nursing facility care if your doctor recommends it after a qualifying three-day inpatient hospital stay. In these circumstances, Medicare covers the first 100 days of care along with a daily coinsurance charge. After that, you’re responsible for all costs.

Medicare Advantage plans may offer some additional limited benefits. “Some Medicare Advantage plans are providing in-home help, but it’s pretty limited coverage at this point, and relatively few plans are providing that,” Jacobson says.
If you’re outside of the U.S. and certain U.S. territories, Medicare doesn’t cover health care or supplies except in some very specific circumstances. (For instance, if you’re passing through Canada between Alaska and another state when you have a medical emergency, and a Canadian hospital is closer than a U.S. hospital, Medicare may cover your care.) Otherwise, you’ll need to find supplemental coverage for travel or purchase insurance in the country you’re living in.
This is a key point if you’re planning to move out of the country. If you ever change your mind and want to return to the U.S. and re-enroll in Medicare, you may be subject to Part B penalties. “It’s important, before they move, that they find out what the implications will be for them if they were to provide up Medicare,” Walker says.
