State Medical Councils to share Online-the information on suspended doctors


State Medical Councils to share Online-the information on suspended doctors

Mumbai: The issue of multiple registrations with different medical councils in different states is reported to have led to yet another loophole after a trend has been observed that medical practitioners suspended by one state medical council are seen going to another state and practising by making a fresh registration with the other state medical council

In order to keep a check and prohibit the illegal medical practice of suspended doctors in other states, the state medical councils have now decided to share their information online so that they cannot practice in the jurisdiction of other states as well.

According to media reports, the move came after a few affiliated doctors at Maharashtra Medical Council (MMC) were suspended for getting themselves in to malpractices in the profession. There were incidents where doctors had been caught for being involved in the sex determination rackets and other incidents. While these doctors were suspended by MMC, some of them started practicing in other states without taking non-objection certificate (NOC) from MMC. Due to multiple registrations, enforcing disciplinary actions against them had been difficult.

Dr Shivkumar Utture, president of MMC told the Asianage, “Doctors who are caught for wrongdoing and suspended by the medical council cannot practise illegally in other states now. All state councils will share information internally. This data will come up during registrations and all councils will be immediately alerted about an individual. Suspended practitioners won’t be able to work illegally in other states.”

The MMC president told Pune Mirror, “Doctors who are suspended by one medical council and want to practise in other state council illegally can’t do so now. All state councils will share information internally and curb malpractices. This data will come up during registrations and any council will be immediately alerted about an individual.”

Medical Dialogues earlier reported that the currently MCI maintains a register only of particulars of medical practitioners of states/UTs where there are no independent state medical councils. Wherever the state medical councils exist under a State Act, every doctor practicing in that state/UT need to register with that state medical council  iin order to practice in that particular state/UT

In 2016, Medical Council of India had announced the decision of having one MCI number- a UPRN that would act as an Aadhaar card of doctors to , which was indeed hailed by the fraternity when it was announced. The UPRN number stands as a solution to a number of issues that are plaguing the medical practitioners across the country, including duplicate registrations across various states, renewal of registrations, as well as that the growing menace fake medical practitioners. Moreover, it would finally help the regulator create a National Registry of Doctors. Till date, no one in the country, not even the Medical Council of India has any idea of how many doctors are actually practising in the country and in which domain, a fact which stands as a basic requirement for any public health policy in the country.

    I think State Medical Council should link Registration number of Doctor with UPRN. This will help in easy recognition of any state council during process of fresh Registration or Renewal of Registration.

  4. Good, I only hope data in kept updated. If a ban is lifted then it must be propagated.

  5. This practice must be applied to others also like lawyers ,engineers,politicians why only doctors.

    WHAT ABOUT DOCTORS WORKING WITH IN TWO ARE PLACES IN THE BORDERING STATES Eg – ANDRAPRADESH & KARNATAKA, AP & TS , KA & TS , TS & KA, KA & TN , TN AND KA & AP . MH & TS , KA , KL & KA , TN. , PONDICHERRY……. MAY BE UP, DL, MP , CH, MH ,ETC. THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF DOCTORS WHO ARE EMPLOYMED BY THE SO CALLED MEDICAL COLLEGES WHO ON DAILY , ALTERNATE, WEEKLY , MONTHLY , AND ONBPAY ROLL WORKING AT DIFFERANT PLACES WITH OUT HAVING ANY FEAR, SHAME AND GUILT…… THERE ARE THE SO CALLED CONSULTANTS OF CORPORATE HOSPITALS GIVEN THEIR NAME AS TEACHING FACULTY MEMBERS ( TEACHERS) . THE BIOMETRIC ATTENDENCE OF THE COLLEGES AND ONE INSTALLED BY MCI ARE MERE PIECE OF INSTRUMENTS, JUST TO FOOL OTHERS. POSITION OF THE FACULTY MEMBERS WITH STRICT VIGILANCE BY USING RFID, MOBILE PHONE POSITIONING WITH SERVER DISCIPLINARY ACTION CAN PREVENT SUCH NASTY NUISANCE NONSENSE PRATICES. WITH TOTAL BAN ON PRIVATE PRATICE TO THE SO CALLED TEACHING MEDICAL COLLEGE FACULTY MEMBERS ( CHEATERS) . THE STUDENTS , THE BABUS THE BUEROCRATES ,AND ENTIRE ADMISTRATION IS INVOLVED ALL SUCH LOUSY PRATICES. I AM SICK AND TIRED OF SEEING SUCH THINGS OVER THE YEARS. FOR RAISING THESE ISSUES , THE RASCALS ARE VERY MUCH UPSET WITH ME . THIS IS LAWLESS COUNTRY , THE RULES ARE MAINLY ON PAPERS , REGULATORS REAL CROOKS TO CORE. IF THESE THINGS ARE RIGHTLY MENTIONED , I AM SURE MORE THAN 50 OF THE DOCTORS LOSE THEIR LICENCES TO PRATICE, 60 % MEDICAL COLLEGES ACROSS THE COUNTRY MAY LOSE PERMISSION TO ADMIT THE STUDENTS.
