Jammu: Bringing in a major reform, the Additional Chief Secretary of the Health and Medical Education (H&ME) Department, Vivek Bharadwaj recently inaugurated the Online Registration Portal of the Jammu & Kashmir Medical Council, which registers the name of the doctors in the UT.
This has been designed after due consideration for the Ease of Doing Business (EoDB), a major reform introduced by the J & K Government under the leadership of the Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, adds Kashmir Reader.
Now, the applicants will be able to submit their applications online, make online payment, and get their provisional, permanent, and additional certificates delivered to them online.
Further, documents including No Objection Certificate, Good Standing Certificates, Duplicate Certificate, Verifications, CME registration etc can now be obtained online. Apart from that, now the Council operations including seeking verification, Registrar Approval and President's approval will all be conducted online from now on.
Medical Dialogues had earlier reported that the term of the JKMC had ended six months ago and the council was dissolved. The situation had landed the MBBS graduates in Jammu and Kashmir in trouble as even after graduating they were unable to get registered under the State Council, which is mandatory for the doctors in order to appear in the NEET-PG counseling process. Besides without the registration of the State Council, the doctors were unable to even practice.
In fact, raising the issue, the doctors had written to the Financial Commissioner and Additional Chief Secretary of Health and Medical Education Department, Shri Vivek Bharadwaj.
Finally, the J & K Medical Council got reconstituted a few days ago and in the order dated 20.10.2021, the UT Health and Medical Education Department specified the names of the four members of the State medical council, the regulating body of medical practice and education in Jammu and Kashmir.
As per the latest media report by the Kashmir Reader, now Shri Vivek Bharadwaj has inaugurated the Online Registration Portal www.jkmedicalcouncil.in, which will act as the destination for all kinds of purposes including submitting documents for Registration, getting registration certificates, and other documents.
The newly constituted medical council will be headed by Dr Saleem Ur Rehman, Director General, Health and Family Welfare, J&K and the other members of the council Dr. Iqbal Sofi, Dr. Rajeshwar Sharma, and Dr Chanderlekha .
The daily further adds that after formation of the council, several committees have been constituted as well including Academic Committee headed by Dr Mohammad Iqbal Sofi, Medical Superintendent, GMC Anantnag, Ethics cum Grievance Committee headed by Dr Chanderlekha and Disciplinary Committee headed by Dr Rajeshwar Sharma, Medical Superintendent, CD Hospital, Jammu.
