    Diplomas very introduced to fulfill the needs of the specialists in the society. The paucity of specialists still persists in the society.in my opinion, we should continue to recognise diplomas in basic specialties while those in superspecialities need not be recognised.

  5. This proves how the government takes doctors lifes as a joke ! These are all pg courses and we are talking about MBBS passed doctors here. So from oct 2017 till this notification , these doctors were specialists and knew how to treat patients of their specialities, and now suddenly they are not eligible for it ?
    A nation that takes its doctors as a joke , can never dream of providing optimum health care to its people.
