    Yes. It is a good move for what was deleted in 2003. This will certainly help for specialists of AMC to get predated teaching experience for joining teaching appointment in Medical colleges as approved by MCI. As there are no PG medical students in most of these institutions they will not be considered as PG teachers.

    The list needs following changes
    1. Cantonement general hospital, Pune is not an Armed Forces Hospital.
    2. Military hosp, Aundh has been shifted to Pune way back im 70s & its present. name is Mil Hosp, CTC,Pune
    3. MilHosp, Ranchi, is Mil Hosp, Namkum
    4. Base Hosp, Udhampur is now Command hosp, Udhampur.
    O/o DGAFMS should write To MCI for the above amendments.
