Existing MCI staff will NOT be retained in NMC: Health Ministry

New Delhi : The recently issued clarification by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in the form of 50 frequently asked questions on the impending National Medical Commission Bill 2017, comes as a setback to the existing employees of the Medical Council of India, as the health ministry has clarified that it does not intend to extend their services once the Commission comes into existence, given the past legacy of MCI.

Medical Dialogues team had earlier reported that As per the provisions of  NMC 2017 Bill, employees of the Medical Council Of India shall be immediately terminated with a 3 months severance package, as soon as the National Medical Commission comes into effect. Section 58 deals with the issue of Employees and their termination.

Facing disastrous consequences on their livelihood, the MCI employees had sought the help of the PMO office, stating that all of them should not be made victim due to the activities of a few black sheep. The employees had further requested that instead of their termination, the government should either utilise their services in the new commission, or in any other establishment of the government.

    Where do you have to go to give feedback and ask FAQs on NMC Bill? I could not find it anywhere. Can someone send me the website link to the following email address

  2. NMC BILL And.. MBBS from the China…….. A review…… I want to clarify here many misconception held by the Indian medical graduates about the foreign medical graduates….. I don\’t know about all the countries providing an MBBS Degree to Indian students… but I know little bit about China where my son has been pursuing an MBBS in one of the 45 MCI and MOE China approved medical colleges……My daughter presently study an MBBS here in India in one of the private medical college of India…………….. In China about 214 medical colleges gives an MBBS degrees to all the Chinese as well as foreign students….And all these colleges are government colleges….Among them only 45 medical colleges are permitted by Ministry of Education China to enroll the international students……which are also approved by the MCI… ……………So here I want to clarify honestly that all these 45 medical colleges are much much better and superior than any Indian private or government medical colleges in every aspects about the college, hospital,patients,campus, hostel,laboratories,teaching,infrastructure,descipline,cleanliness etc etc…. All these 45 Chinese medical colleges maintain strictly an international standard of education….My son\’s university has 13 affiliated hospitals in China and all these hospitals are of the international standard…Request all to see these hospitals on the Google…All their teachers has to clear a tough international examination after doing a PHD…Every student has to work hard to get 60%passing marks as there is no corruption or recommendations in China.. So I think education and training imparted to the medical students in all these 45 medical colleges of China is much more better and superior than any Indian medical colleges…. However all these foreign students have to clear the toughest FMGE exam to do practice in India..This FMGE exam has been intensely made very tough (only 10 % results is given) to keep the foreign medical graduates out of practicing in India and to fill the seats of rubbish Indian private medical colleges with huge exorbitant fees..All these rubbish Indian private medical colleges which do not have any medical teaching (teachers,lab,classroom)or hospital(No patients)facilities to give any knowledge to their students.And so the medical graduates of these college s even do not know how to measure the blood pressure or how to give an intravenous injection..The corrupted MCI just gives the permission of such colleges on the basis of how much bribes they get.. So I think only Quacks are produced from the majority of the rubbish Indian private medical colleges..And ironically all these nuesence opposing the Medical Licentiate Examination..If Indian medical graduates do not want the EXIT exam then why an injustice is meted out to the foreign medical graduates by imposing very tough FMGE exam on them… Cancel the FMGE examination also to increase the number of doctors in India….

  3. This is a very correct and appropriate decision. Current MCI is working in very autocratic manner with no accountability. If taken they will spoil the national medical commission also.

  4. It’s a correct decision. They can be offered golden handshake to avoid financial difficulties for bringing up the family. They will face the consequences due to corrupt practices of the organization.

  5. As you sow so shall you reap!!!
