In view of the availability of expertise in medical colleges, there is a felt need to leverage their strength to improve clinical, Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs) and comorbidity management of patients with Drug-resistant Tuberculosis (DR-TB) across India. 


  • Expansion of DR-TB services in the medical colleges will be helpful for enhancing the quality of care, treatment success and survival of these difficult-to-treat patients. 
  • National Medical Commission (NMC) issued a gazette notification in October 2020, mandating all medical colleges to establish a facility for the management of DR-TB by the time of 3rd renewal (admission of 4th batch of MBBS students). 
  • Private and Non-government Organisation (NGO) medical college hospitals are considered to serve as Nodal (N)/ District DR-TB Centre (DDR-TBC) at places where there is a need, either due to additional workload, non-availability of an appropriate public facility or preference of patients in the area. 
  • Terms and conditions for establishing that centre may be arrived at the local level as per the prevailing market rates in concurrence of the state/ district health society of the National Health Mission (NHM).
