All Medical College Inspections would be Videographed: MCI Board of Governors

New Delhi: Hitting the nail right on the head, the newly appointed Medical Council of India Board of Governors, is all set to install transparency in the process of MCI inspection of Medical Colleges, by ensuring videography of the entire process.

Medical Dialogues team had earlier brought the issue to light, stating that since all the alleged corruption at the council finds its roots in the approval and recognition of private medical colleges and their degrees, any move towards a  “Swacch Medical Council” will only come, if the BoG takes decisions to instill transparency and standardisation in the process of inspection of Medical Colleges. This requires that each and every MCI inspection of a medical college be video-recorded, compiled and promptly put in public domain so that medical aspirants exactly know what sort of medical college they are seeking admission into.

Addressing the very big elephant in the room, the recent meeting of  MCI Board of Governors saw the committee taking a call that all the said inspections would be videogaphed and the inspectors would be chosen randomly, through software to avoid any chances of corruption.

“We had been getting feedback that these assessments were completely arbitrary and did not give the college authorities a chance to explain–even minor issues were blown up and these were later used to extort from the college at the time of renewal,” the official said. “The complaints from new private colleges were particularly glaring,” a senior official in the medical education section of the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare informed Indian Express.

The official added that the decision of cleanup has been taken in the last week’s meeting.

“The matter was discussed in detail in the BOG meeting last week and it has been decided that a fair and clean approach for inspection (of medical college) would be adopted..It was also decided that the process of inspection will be recorded through videography so that there is least chance of any underhand dealing or extortion, and in case of any discrepancy it can be sorted out later,” the official informed the daily.

Medical Dialogues had earlier reported about the Union Health Ministry creating a group of expert faculty that is going to assist the MCI BOG in the assessment of Medical Colleges for fresh registration as well as renewal of licences.

The Ministry has also put forward a system of secret roster to determine the details of the MCI inspections in order to bring in more transparency.

“The roster will be a secret till the last minute, so that no one is aware who will sit for which college’s assessment. This way, medical colleges will not be able to directly approach committee members, and chances of corrupt practices will go down sharply,” an official had confirmed.

  1. 1.Why inspection of documents of appointment, service and promotion personally? Video conference from Delhi on different days will be better than personal verification on a single day.This will avoid wasting time on physical verification of all faculty in one day
    2. Every medical college should have their own Website containing the details of pictures of buildings, individual wards, OPD , library etc, diagnostic facilities, no. of beds, faculty names,qualification,experience and their academic record so that the students can decide whether to join in that college or not.
    3. All hospital records should be checked and the involvement of individual faculty shown during inspection should be verified. The theory and practical examinations should be conducted under CCTV camera surveillance and one copy should be sent to MCI through internet on the same day after the examination is over for record purpose.
    4.The unit head should be made responsible for signining leave applications/death reports/discharge files of their departments.
    5.In case of doubt as to whether the service/ promotion orders is real or fake, the college principals should be asked to confirm and the yearly income tax returns during the period given in the service certificate should be verified.
    6.A copy of each publication of a teaching faculty in a medical college should be stored in MCI website to reduce plagiarism allegations.

    IN GOVERNMENT MEDICAL COLLEGES THE ENTIRE SHOW IS MANAGED BY MEAN MINADED MINITER & BOOTLICKERS – THE BABU THE BUEROCRATES. REST OF ARE MORE LIKE SLAVES ( THE SALARIED SLAVES ). SLAVES CAN ENJOY POWER ,POSITION & PREVILAGES BEING A…SU….RS. OR BEING A RELATIVE OF THOSE CASTIEST CUNNING,CORRUPT ,CARELESS,.CROOKS. IN GOVERNMENT THE RULES ARE ONLY ON THE PAPERS , IMPLEMENTATION ALMOST INVISIBLE . YES AT TIMES THEY DO MISSUSE TO EXPLOIT THE SITUTION & INTIMIDATE THE INDIVIDUALS NOT HAVING ADVANATAGE CASTE, MONEY TO FLORISH / BRIBE, SUPPLY SCOTCH TO NATACH nanga (DANCE) HONEY TO TASTE( TEST) & FLESH TO RELISH- SO TO MAKE THEM FREAKOUT. IF SOME ONE IS READY PROVIDE TO SUCH THINGS , Then HE BECOMES NAMAVA ( HE IS OURS), OTHER WISE EVANARAVAA ( WHO THE HELL IS HE…) THIS IS A SLOGAN OF SOME NASTY CASTES /community such people should be labelled as anti social & anti-nationals. This is the worst form of corruption. Unless such people are put behind the bars , our country can never be a vishwaguru. Other wise every lallupanju/ useless individual declares self as a vishwaguru. Later on their phanetic clowns/clans/cult promote them as vishwaguru by misguiding, MUDSLEDGING and misusing the power , position and political and professional advantages. OUR NATIONAL POLITICAL PARTIES SHOULD RETIFY THEIR NORROW VISION, BLOCKED HEARING WITH OCCUMULATED EAR WAX, AND DRUGGED/DAMAGED/DEGERATING /DIRTY/DANGEROUS BRAINS . INSTEAD OF WASTING TIME TALKING ABOUT BORFOS, RAFFLE , BAPUJI, CHACHA JI, MATHAJI, BANJI, NETHJI -1, nethaji-2, atalji, vitalji, haanji, honji, and in the making of many more psudogandhis. Red flag should turn clean by cleaning up their own dirty /perverted mentally , by change it\’s colour from Red to blue and white. ( Red is rage , blue is nacked truth\’, white is pure.)

  4. MCI should have surprise inspections in between for which it has given recognition. Most of the private medical colleges for pre & para clinical subjects,appoint M.D/M.D TEACHERS only for the time when inspection is there, afterwards it manages the courses with M.Sc./Ph.D. Worst MOST of the M.Sc.are NON-medical .Again after 5 years when they have to re-apply for inspection,they start looking for M.D./M.S.TEACHERS. For this mci inspections should be surprise ones in between to catch these failures. THIS WILL KEEP THE MEDICAL COLLEGES ALERT & they will be scared to do such wrongs.These wrong doings on part of the medical colleges has affected the standard of education in medical colleges & harmed the students.What kind of future doctors is the society getting. MCI should consider surprise inspections.By this EVEN the no. of patients in the hospital -IN & on OPD basis can be found & help MCI to take decisio regarding these medical colleges

  5. Dear BoG, MCI
    1. Firstly, the MCI Inspector should interospect himself about transparency & honesty.
    2. Then committee members should be transparent & honest
    3. It has been seen that there are n number of Ghost faculty who attends the college only on the day of inspection but they are shown as full time faculty. Their TDS is also deducted

    IT\’S better Everyone introspect at least once in a week if not on a daily basis. The MCI ASSESSORS , THE HEAD OF INSTITUTION HAS TO GO THROUGH THE REPORT GO THROUGH IT ,BEFORE SINGING PAGE BY PAGE . S/HE HAS RIGHT TO RSISE OBJECTIONS IF ANY THING FOUND WRONG / INCORRECT, THEY CAN EVEN FILE A CASE. WHAT HAPPENS TO REPORT AFTER REACHING NEW DELHI IT IS LEFT TO DISCRETION OF PEOPLE SITTING IN DELHI – MCI / MINISTRY OF HEALTH & FAMILY WELFARE???. INSTEAD OF BLAMING SOME ONE, BETTER TO TALK ABOUT SYSTEM.( It is.like saying my soldiers bad ).

  7. MCI should hit on yearly appointments of Assistant professor and regular promotion in a time bound manner .
    Contractual appointments shoulgd be banned as they have no accountability
    No benefit to students .
