    A good move regulating allied health care services. Also there is need for deciding number of paramedical personnel assisting in each department of medical colleges depending upon number of seats in that medical college. This should be on par with number of Prof. ,Associate Prof, Assistant Prof , Tutors determined by MCI. There should be head count for paramedical personnel ( LTs, Radiographers, staff nurses etc.,) when the MCI inspects the college for recognition.
