Maharashtra is located in the western region of India and the state is termed as the entertainment hub of India. The state has a total of 55 medical colleges, out of those 24 are government-owned and 31 are private. MBBS is a dignified degree aimed by many students. In India, admission to MBBS is decided by conducting a pan-Indian medical entrance test called NEET. Every year around 16 lakh students appear for the NEET examination and each year the number of candidates increases. The seats are allotted on the grounds of scores obtained by the candidates.

It’s a dream of every NEET aspirant to obtain a seat in any leading government/public medical college. Here in this blog, we would like to share the details of the top 10 Government medical colleges in Maharashtra.

4. BJMC Pune – BJ Government Medical College

On June 23, 1946, B. J. Medical College was established to replace the former B. J. Medical School, with Shri. B. G. Kher, the head of the Bombay Government, laying the foundation stone. This was the achievement of the desire of a foresighted Parsi philanthropist, Byramjee Jeejeebhoy, to establish an institution in Puna for doctor training and medical facilities comparable to those in Bombay. His generosity and munificence allowed the B.J. Medical School to begin operations in 1871 on property granted by him, and when the school was raised to a college in 1946, the name was retained. The MBBS medical course was affiliated with the University of Puna.
