    National Board of Examinations has refused to share inspection reports of hospitals on the basis of which seats were granted

      The information sought under the Right to Information was refused on the grounds that it was available with the NBE in a "fiduciary capacity" and could not be divulged without consent from the hospitals.

    The National Board of Examinations, which regulates almost 7,000 post-graduate medical seats, mostly in private hospitals, has refused to share inspection reports of hospitals on the basis of which seats were granted. 

    In its response to RTI applications, the NBEstated that it had asked the hospitals if information pertaining to them could be given to a third party but the hospitals had refused.

    The Medical Council of India (MCI), which regulates roughly 28,000 PG seats, in contrastputs all inspection reports on its website. 
    Since post graduateseats regulated by NBE are equivalent to those regulated by MCI and both bodies essentially perform the same function, it is not clear why NBE cannot also put this information in the public domain.

    Asked why they had refused to part with this information, NBEofficials told TOI that its assessment reports also included employment contracts of hospitals with faculty members and income tax details of the faculty along with pan number, which areconfidential and could not be shared. 

    Asked why such information alone could not be kept confidential while revealing the assessment reports, they claimed the relevant assessment documents, list of assessors and other details would be put up on the new website once it becomes operational by June end. Yet, the NBErefused this information to RTI applicants.
