New Delhi: With the Medical Council of India announcing that each and every doctor will have their Unique Permanent Registration Number (UPRN), the council is now preparing with the herculean task of providing a unique ID to doctor online, based on the verification of their aadhar and other documents. In the world of digitisation, the move would digitise India’s registry of doctors and is being undertaken as part of its ongoing e-governance initiative.
Following are the steps to be following by doctors for getting their UPRN from the apex medical council
- Register by visiting www.mciindia.org and click on “Doctor Login.” Enter basic information like Name and Contact details including email address. A User Id and password will be sent to the email address.
- Doctors need to use this Id and password to login and enter all requested details including personal details, contact details, aadhar number, professional details and upload the latest qualification documents.
- Pay the fees to MCI online/offline and select the date and time when the doctor will visit the State Medical Council for verification of documents.
- Once the documents are physically verified at the State Medical Council (SMC), then the respective SMC will process the record in the system. The system will perform the following tasks automatically.
- Aadhar Details will be verified
- UPRN number will be generated
- IMR database will be updated with the new UPRN number and will update the latest details of the doctor
- Email notification will go to Doctor, MCI and SMC.
It is reported that the website of the council has been recently revamped, and currently the doctors login feature states ” This module is under Testing and will be available for usage shortly”. Medical Dialogues team will provide regular updates on the issue.
