MCI Board of Governors to now run Council for 2 years: Modi Cabinet passes fresh Ordinance


MCI Board of Governors to now run Council for 2 years: Modi Cabinet passes fresh Ordinance

The period for which the MCI BOG was appointed, has been increased from one year to two years, the official said.

New Delhi: The Union Cabinet Tuesday approved the proposal for promulgation of the Indian Medical Council (Amendment) Second Ordinance, 2019 to allow the Board of Governors (BOG) to run the scam-tainted apex body for regulating medical education.

The Medical Council of India (MCI) was superseded in September 2018 through an ordinance. But, the ordinance could not be approved by Parliament, and was shortly going to lapse, a senior health ministry official said.

With this approval, now a fresh ordinance will be promulgated to ensure that the BOG can continue to function in lieu of the MCI, he said.

The Union Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has approved these two proposals — promulgation of an ordinance, namely, the Indian Medical Council (Amendment) Second Ordinance, 2019, and bringing in necessary official amendments in the Indian Medical Council (Amendment) Bill, 2018, pending in Parliament for replacing the said ordinance, the government said.

“The proposal will enable the Board of Governors appointed in supersession of Medical Council of India as per the provisions of earlier ordinance to continue to exercise the powers of MCI and that of the central government under Section 10A of the Indian Medical Council (IMC) Act, 1956, so as to ensure transparency, accountability and quality in the governance of medical education in the country,” it said.

It will ensure that the work already done by the BOG as per provisions of earlier Ordinance is validated and may continue.

Further, the period for which the BOG was appointed, has been increased from one year to two years, the official said.

  1. THE RULES SHOULD BE IMPLEMENTED IN TRUE SPRIT WITH OUT ANY DISCRIMINATION OR FAVOURITISM BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT AND PRIVATE MEDICAL COLLEGES . THE GOVERNMENT MEDICAL COLLEGES ARE GETTING UNDUE IMPORTANCE , DESPITE NOT HAVING REQUIRED FECALITIES – FACULTY MEMBERS, CLINICAL MATERIAL, INFRASTRUCTURE, EQUIPMENTS, DEVICES DRUGS , CONSUMABLES, INSTRUMENTS IMPLANTS , SOPPORTING STAFF,etc. EVEN THE DEAN DIRECTORS , MEDICAL SUPERINTENDENTS ARE WITH OUT REQUIRED EXPIRANCE , MERIT & SENIORITY. SOME HOW SUCH PEOPLE REMAIN IN POWER POSITION POST OVER THE YEARS . EITHER THE VISITING MCI TEAM MEMBERS ARE POCKETED BY THE SUCH BY RASCALS OR THEIR REPORTING IS OVERLOOKED BY THE PEOPLE SITTING IN MCI OFFICE IN NEW DELHI TO BE PRESISE IN DWARKA OR THE MINISTRY OF H& FW IS SUPPORTING OR OVERLOOKING THE MCI SAF / MINIMUM REQUIREMENT CRITIRIA . UNDOUBTEDLY THE STATE GOVERNMENTS KEEP THEIR OWN MEN IN ALL IMPORTANT POSTS, POSITIONS MAINLY BASED ON THE CASTE COMMUNITY INFLUENCE & MONEY . IF ANY BODY HAS DOUBT PLAESE CHECK THEIR DETAILS OF CASTE ,IT WILL GIVE VITAL CLUE , THAN THE AGE, EXPIRANCE ……. I THINK WITH THESE HINTS , EVEN AN INTERN CAN FIND OUT THE FAULTS. I HAVE PLENTY OF LIVE EXAMPLES TO SUSTANCIATE MY VIEWS . THERE SHOULD BE INSENSITIVES, APPRICIATIONS , AWARDS FOR THOSE ,WHO EXPOSE THE WRONG DOINGS BY THE MEDICAL COLLEGES . IN GOVERNMENT MEDICAL COLLEGES THE ENTIRE ADMISTRATION COME FOR SOPPORT OF THE MEDICAL COLLEGES , STARTING FROM D C / DM TO DME, THE BIG BABU THE BUEROCRATE THE PRINCIPLE SECRETARY , BY POSTING DOCTORS JUST BEFORE OR THE DAY OF M C I VISIT . THERE ARE HARDLY ANY NOTE WORTHY FACULTY MEMBERS IN MOST OF THE MEDICAL COLLEGES . THE LOCAL PRACTICENERS WERE GIVEN / TAKEN APPOINTMENT . THESE GUYS DISAPPEAR TO THEIR PRIVATE PRACTICE SOON AFTER THE ATTENDENCE , LEAVING OPD WARDS TO THE MURCY OF ILL QUALIFIED/ TRAINE INTERN . CAN YOU BELIEVE JUST 10 METERS AWAY FROM THE MEDICAL COLLEGE PREMISES THE RESIDENTS HAVE PUT MASSIVE BOSRDS OF THEIR CLICINS / NURSING HOMES/ HOSPITALS . IN REALITY THEY ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO INVOLVE IN PRIVATE PRACTICE . THERE ARE SEVERAL WRONG THINGS HAPPENS / HAPPENING IN EXCESS , BUT HARDLY ANY ONE HAS INTENTIONS OR INCLINATIONS TO PENALIZE THEM . WHAT A SHAME ???.
