About College

Moti Lal Nehru Medical College (MLN Medical College or MLNMC) is a medical school in Allahabad India that was founded in memory of Pt. Motilal Nehru. On 7 November 1854, Leslie Hudson, a member of British Parliament raised a question about British Government's plan to open medical colleges in India which was under the rule of British East India Company then. Replying to that, Sir Charles Wood, the minister concerned announced that by 1861 medical colleges would be opened in five cities of India, namely Bombay, Calcutta, Madras, Lahore and Allahabad. 

Pt.Moti Lal Nehru was the chief spokesperson of the deputation that called on Lord Curzon on 17-11-1904 at Allahabad in leadership of Pt. Madan Mohan Malviya. During this meet Pt. Moti Lal Nehru reminded the Viceroy of the promise made by the British Government 50 years back and told him that it was a matter of deep regret that there was no medical college in Allahabad which at that time was the capital of United Province (re-named as Uttar Pradesh after independence). It was to honour Pt. Nehru’s great efforts and will that MotiLal Nehru Medical College was formally inaugurated on 5 May 1961 by Honorable President of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad. 

Today the college is recognised by Medical Council of India for imparting medical education of undergraduate and post graduate degree /diploma level in various specialities. Every year a batch of 100 students is admitted to the first year of MBBS degree course of the college through an entrance test conducted by the Government of Uttar Pradesh.Similarly admissions to various postgraduate courses are also taken through similar entrance test organised by the government.
