MP and Chhattisgarh : A foreign trip taken by around 30 doctors belonging to the two states may prove highly costly, as the PMO is reported to have ordered an inquiry into the details of the same. It is alleged that the said foreign trip was taken at the expense of pharma companies, a fact that completely goes against the code of Medical Ethics.
According to the complaint that has led to this inquiry, pharma companies had spent around Rs 2 Lakh each for 30 doctors for sending them to Italy.
Reports have now come out, that the PMO has now written a letter to the to the chief secretaries of the two states, asking them to initiate action against the errant doctors.
the Medical Council of India through its respective state branches also had issued notices to these 30 doctors asking them to provide details of the properties, bank accounts as well as foreign travels made, especially about the ITALY visit
