MCI Board of Governors to decide on Recognition of CPS diploma course


MCI Board of Governors to decide on Recognition of CPS diploma course

New Delhi: The fate of the diploma courses offered by College of Physician & Surgeons, Mumbai (CPS) is soon going to be decided by the Medical Council of India Board of Governors (MCI BOG), which is expected to soon take a call on the matter.

Medical Dialogues earlier reported about the CPS recognition issue. While DNB candidates in the country are fighting for the equivalence,  candidates having degrees from College of Physicians and Surgeons are fighting for recognition. Erstwhile MCI on its part had been doing a Yo-Yo Movement when it comes to decision of recognition of these courses. In October 2017, through a gazette MCI recognised many CPS diplomas, while just 4 months later, through another notification de-recognised many other CPS degrees.

The matter of the recognition of these courses, as well as the infrastructure based on which they are provided was also brought up before the Bombay HC in 2018. In the case pertaining to the recognition of CPS courses, the Bombay High Court pulled up the central and the state government for allowing such courses to flourish despite opposition from the MCI adding that If a CPS diploma holder cannot teach any student nor can be termed as an expert in any branch of medicine or surgery, then, there is no warrant in allowing him to retain this degree in his bio-data or nameplate.

The court also made special note of the earlier communications in the matter which noted “CPS being a Society without any proper infrastructure, teaching faculty, hospital, etc. required for imparting medical education is not legally entitled to conduct any medical course as well as confer any degrees whatsoever. In any event, the degree granted by the CPS cannot be treated as a recognized medical qualification.”

The court had also directed the MCI to take a call on the matter. With the supersession of the MCI by the Board of Governors, the issue went to the MCI BOG to decide.

The agenda of recognition of these courses was recently brought up in the May month meeting of the MCI Board Of Governors. The Board of Governors decided that the matter may also be placed before the Member BoG (PG) Dr. S Venkatesh for his opinion. Thereafter the matter be placed before the BoG for consideration at its next meeting.

    CPS is 100 years old institution..Previously posts ,degree,Diplomas were recognised in UK & other Countries also…All the Doctors passed out from CPS are giving services to the society,people efficiently…On one hand Govt. is planning to broden Medical base by increasing MBBS Colleges (Giving to District level),due to scarcity of Post Graduates..On other hand they are thinking of banning CPS..This is only to controll Medical services ,and giving these Medical colleges to Private parties…in the name of Trusts… MCI should take strict stand to continue this prestigeous institution CPS..How can Highcourt will take decision regarding this ?
    On one hand Govt. is giving permission to Private Medical Colleges, which common people can not afford…Here CPS is giving platform to the Children of Middleclass,even poor parents…Highcourt or Govt have no right to Ban CPS…If they will ban CPS, they have no right to open New Medical Colleges…
    Just go through the Fees structure of CPS and compare with private institutional PG\’s.. You will find vast difference…We respect judiciary, but sad to say, this topic of banning CPS is not their domain to interfere…
