  1. Isn\’t it ironical, MD MS which are awarded separately by 50 different universities in the country are all same and equal.
    And DNB which is awarded by one National Board of Examinations, for whole nation is of 3 different standards.

    It speaks of mental bankruptcy and outright discriminatory tactics of the medical elite in the nation.

    SHAME SHAME

  2. The language of rules in the gazette is very ambiguous. It leaves scope for manupilation by people who have vested interests

  3. It\’s very unfortunate again. DNB qualifications have unnecessarily been divided into 3 types. All DNBs have nation wide common entrance, training and exit. There is no point dividing them on hospital size. There was no such discrimination when we joined DNB.

    ANBAI without consulting any DNBs introduced the idea of such a discrimination in 2012 and again in 2017 and 2018.
    Now our fate is sealed. We will have to face this for rest of our careers.

    Shame on ANBAI, shame on this Govt., shame on NMC.

    These notification seems to appoint some pre chosen candidate to to provide lateral entry or entry to medical academia.Apart from govt or semigovt. hospital there is no such distribution of beds for teaching purpose.There is three decade gap in issuing such a notification to halt appointment process and put whole process in limbo and even dissolution of MCI.

    Adjunct professor by d n b should be considered for professor or associate professor
    As they are teaching to dnb and only 3o are chosen among thousand dnb teachers / faculty.
