MCI Board Of Governors to have 12 members: Union Cabinet Clears fresh ordinance for Medical Concil Supersession

The New Bill provides for super session of MCI for a period of two years with effect from September 26, 2018. During this period, the MCI Board of Governors shall exercise the powers and functions of MCI as assigned under the IMC Act, 1956. The number of members in the MCI Board of Governors will be increased from existing seven to 12.

New Delhi: The Union Cabinet, chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has approved the Indian Medical Council (Amendment) Bill, 2019 to replace the Indian Medical Council (Amendment) Second Ordinance, 2019 through an Act of Parliament.

The Bill will be introduced in the ensuing session of the Parliament, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar told media here.

The move will ensure transparency, accountability and quality in the governance of medical education in the country.

The New Bill provides for supersession of MCI for a period of two years with effect from September 26, 2018. During this period, the Board of Governors shall exercise the powers and functions of MCI as assigned under the IMC Act, 1956. The number of members in the Board of Governors will be increased from existing seven to 12.

Further, the Union Cabinet has approved the draft Homoeopathy Central Council (Amendment) Bill, 2019.

The Bill seeks to extend the period for reconstitution of the Central Council from existing period of one year to two years so that the tenure of the Board of Governors may be extended for a further period of one year with effect from May 17, 2019.

This will help the Central Council of Homoeopathy in exercising the powers and performing the functions of the Council, a statement read.

This Bill will replace the Homoeopathy central council (Amendment) Ordinance, 2019 and extend the tenure of Government for another one year.

Moreover, the Union Cabinet has approved the introduction of a Bill to amend the Dentists Act, 1948 (16 of 1948) in order to make the Dental Council of India more effective

The decision also gives effect, with certain modifications, to the provisions of the Dentists Act, 1948 with regard to the membership of the Dental Council of India and membership of State and Joint State Dental Councils.

The amendment will help restructure the Dental Councils and the representation of Central Government members and elected members would no longer be made mandatory in the Dental Councils.

In the process it will reduce the redundancy. This Bill will also be introduced in the upcoming session of Parliament.

    🙏🌹🏥एमबीबीएस/बीडीएस 🏥🌹🙏

    अपने देश हिंदुस्तान में डॉक्टरों की कमी को दूर करने के लिए सरकार ने कुछ बड़े फैसले लेने चाहिए। देश में मेडिकल की पढ़ाई के लिये सरकारी और प्राईवेट मेडिकल कॉलेजों में बहुत ज्यादा मारा-मारी है, जिसकी वजह से डॉक्टरी की पढ़ाई के लिए लोग अपने बच्चों को दुसरे अन्य देशों के मेडिकल कॉलेजों में दाखिला दिलवाते हैं तथा अपने देश के नागरिकों द्वारा करोड़ों रुपया अन्य देशों में जा रहा हैं। अगर हमारे देश की सरकार चाहें तो यह करोड़ों-अरबों रूपया अपने देश में ही रखा जा सकता हैं जैसे:-

    1. केंद्रीय स्वास्थ्य मंत्रालय ने उन मेडिकल कॉलेजों में एमबीबीएस कोर्स के लिए 50 फीसदी सीटें बढ़ाने की मंजूरी देनी चाहिएं जिनकी स्थापना के 5 साल पूरे हो चुके हैं।

    2. बीडीएस के कोर्स के बाद दो वर्ष का अतिरिक्त मेडिसिन से सम्बंधित एमबीबीएस का पाठ्यक्रम शामिल करके अतिरिक्त पढ़ाया जाना चाहिए ताकि ये डॉक्टर दांतों की बीमारियों के ईलाज करने साथ-साथ शरीर की अन्य बीमारियों का भी ईलाज कर सकेंगे। इस प्रक्रिया करने से:
    – एक तो गाँव और शहरों में डॉक्टरों की कमी दूर होगी।

    – दूसरा एमबीबीएस के लिए मारा-मारी भी खत्म होगी।

    – तीसरा बीडीएस कोर्स की तरफ बच्चों का रूझान बढ़ेगा।

    – चौथा माँ-बाप को मजबूरन अपने बच्चों को दुसरे अन्य देशों में भेजना नहीं पडेंगे।

    – पांचवां अपने देश के नागरिकों का करोड़ों रुपया अपने देश में ही रहेगा।

    मुझे उम्मीद है कि सरकार बच्चों के उज्जवल भविष्य और देश के नागरिकों के अच्छे स्वास्थ्य के हित में उचित निर्णय लेने की कृपया करेंगे।

    प्रार्थना करता।

    Dr.Bharadwaj,

    Yr suggestions are excellent and much called fr. It may not be ethical for me to forward it to PMO and Dr.Harshvardhan as my idea. Putting ideas in this forum no doubt adds strength but dies natural death without reaching the people who matters so pls tweet it to pmo and official account of union Health Minister.
