New Delhi: Boasting of having offices in five of the seven northeast states, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) declared on Saturday that it has opened two sub-offices in the states of Manipur and Mizoram.

Manipur Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh and RBI deputy governor Harun R Khan inaugurated the central bank’s sub-office in Imphal on Saturday, a RBI statement said.

The Imphal office, which will have a financial inclusion and development department, consumer education and protection cell and market intelligence unit, “will work in close coordination of the state government, NABARD and the banks for financial and banking development of the state,” the statement further said.

On Thursday, RBI Governor Raghuram G Rajan and Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla inaugurated an RBI sub-office in Aizawl, with the same departments.

Mizoram’s first medical college is slated to open its doors in August.

The Mizoram Institute of Medical College of Research is located at Falkawn and has all the necessary infrastructures as required by the Medical Council of India (MCI), L. Fimate, the Director of the college, told IANS on Saturday.

“The MCI has recommended the Letter of Permission for setting up the college,” he said.

Mizoram Chief Minister Lal Thanhawla initiated the institution’s establishment keeping in mind the rising number of medical aspirants in the state.

Fimate said:, “Mizoram has been getting just 10 seats every year in the Regional Institute of Medical Sciences, (RIMS), Imphal. It is a central college. The medical aspirants of Mizoram find it almost impossible to get a seat in other medical colleges in India.”

The college will initially capacitate 100 students, 85 seats reserved for Mizo students.

Fimate has previously served as the Director in RIMS for nearly six years. He has also served as the head of the Forensic sciences in RIMS and J.N. Institute of Medical Sciences, Imphal. (IANS)
