The department said 98 of 148 students were studying in World College and there was no deficiency of infrastructure and faculty in view of facts and as evident from the inspection conducted by the Board of Governors, Medical Council of India, on March 19.

In a communiqué sent to the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare by Additional Chief Secretary, Department of Medical and Research, Haryana, it is stated that it appears from the inspection report that the college meets the minimum requirement of faculty for 150 students.
