Mizoram Assembly passes bill for supplying cadavers to medical

Press Trust of India  |  Aizawl 

Assembly Thursday passed a bill to facilitate the supply of cadavers to the medical college in the state.

Dr R Lalthangliana introduced the Anatomy Bill, 2019, and it was passed unanimously.

Lalthangliana said the bill, after enactment, would facilitate availability of bodies for the Institute of Medical and Research (MIMER) at Falkawn, about 20 kilometres from here.

Cadavers are required by medical colleges for the purpose of anatomical examination and dissection.

An MIMER said it could manage with eight cadavers a year and that would cost the institute Rs 8 lakh.

Classes have started at MIMER from August last year for the academic session 2018-19 with the capacity of 100 students intake annually.
