  2. NEW DELHI: The missing minutes of ethics committee meetings of the Medical Council of India (MCI) is an enduring mystery. No minutes of meetings held since May 2013 have been uploaded for reasons the council chooses not to explain. Even right to information (RTI) applications for making public the minutes have been met with total silence. The ethics committee meetings are where important disciplinary action is decided against errant doctors and cases of medical negligence are taken up.

Please provide me with a certified photocopy of the rule stating whether a person has to pay the whole course fees of MBBS of private medical college before taking a transfer in 2nd year MBBS in another government medical college.
  4. Hi, I am working as an assistant professor in a private medical college for last 4+ years. In past MCI demanded atleast 5 years of experience for promotion to the post of Associate Professor from Assistant professor in a medical college throughout India. Recently medical council of india ammended the rules for the promotion to the post of associate professor in medical colleges stating that an assistant professor may be promoted as an associate professor if he/ she has 4+years experience of assistant professor along with 2 research publications in an index journal. However this term "research publication" has not been defined. None of the index medical journals has any category as research publications in their list of contents. I want to know which articles will be considered as research publications for the same? Can somebody guide me if this information can be extarcted under RTI from MCI and how should i go about it? The MCI website does not mention the amount which has to be submitted along with RTI application.
  5. As reported in timesofindia.indiatimes.com on 19 Feb 2012: Furnish details of medical faculty, CIC tells MCI - The Times of India Furnish details of medical faculty, CIC tells MCI PUDUCHERRY: In a significant order that will help eradicate fake faculty members in private medical colleges, the Central Information Commission has directed the Medical Council of India (MCI) to furnish details of faculty members, their designations and their joining dates on its website and update the information every quarter. Puducherry Government Medical Officers' Association general secretary Dr K Sudhakar had filed an application under the RTI Act with the MCI public information officer (PIO) seeking details about faculty members in nine private medical colleges in Puducherry. Unsatisfied with the reply given by the PIO, Sudhakar filed an appeal with the first appellate authority , which failed to pass an order within the stipulated time. Sudhakar then approached the CIC. Commissioner Shailesh Gandhi ordered the MCI to furnish names of faculty members, their designations and joining dates on its website and update the information every quarter.
  6. As reported by Amit Singh and Shashank Singh in mid-day.com on 02 May 2011: http://www.mid-day.com/news/2011/may/020511-news-delhi-Nitika-death-guilty-of-negligence-Medical-Council.htm Justice for Nitika? Four doctors of a renowned private hospital in Delhi found guilty of negligence by Medical Council of India following the victim's death two days after delivering a baby The fight that began two years ago has almost reached culmination for the Manchanda family. Four doctors of Max Hospital, Pitampura have been held guilty by Medical Council of India (MCI) of negligence in patient care due to which the victim died. Deepika Manchanda sister of Nitika. File pic On May 29, 2009, MiD DAY had carried a story on how Nitika Manchanda (30), died two days after delivering her child because of alleged medical negligence. On May 5, she was declared dead at half past twelve within hours of complaining of severe backache. The cause of death was put down as "acute circulatory failure". Nitika, who worked as an assistant manager with Genpact, had delivered a baby boy through caesarean section on May 3. According to the death summary submitted by then consulting gynaecologist Dr Alka Gupta, Nitika complained of backache on the morning of May 5, and despite all resuscitative procedures, she could not be revived. However Nitika's family maintained that no proper attention was given to the patient when she complained about her problem. 'Little solace' Expressing satisfaction, SP Manchanda, the complainant and father of Nikita said, "The loss was big enough for us and could never be compensated. But this was a small step to pay tribute to our late daughter. We had filed over 50 RTI applications to various government departments to get entire details. We lost the case in Delhi Medical Council (DMC) and appealed at MCI. Finally we received a RTI reply letter from MCI regarding minutes of the meeting held on March 8, 2011, which confirmed medical negligence on part of Max doctors." The MCI held four doctors guilty for the death. The RTI reply by Ethics Committee of MCI said the patient was managed efficiently for delivery of baby with breech presentation, and both mother and baby were fine till nearly 39 hours of surgery. But with the onset of clinical symptoms of complications, mind was not applied properly and no investigations were done to ascertain the cause of symptoms. Painkillers were used indiscreetly till the patient went into irreversible shock and cardiac arrest. According to the MCI, Dr Alka Gupta and Dr Pooja Bhatia were immediate treating doctors and hence were held guilty of negligence in patient care, whereas Dr Navita Kumari as per records was involved in pre-terminal care which was done as per the recommended protocol and hence not guilty. Dr Vikas Mangla advised medications without examining the patient hence guilty of his conduct. Dr Mohammed Nabi and Dr Preeti Bobal were the junior doctors and did not have any major contribution towards the negligent management. Dr Rajeev Kapoor was negligent in providing the wrong information, the reply added. Long wait In the judgement delivered on June 7, 2010, DMC took up two issues into consideration for determination of this case. Firstly, whether any medical negligence was committed during the lower section segment caesarean section procedure. And secondly, whether any medical negligence was committed in the post delivery treatment. In both cases the disciplinary committee of DMC ordered in favour of the hospital. In the first, it said that the surgical procedure was conducted as per the standard guidelines and no medial negligence was committed during the said procedure. After going through the written statements of all the doctors responsible that time, on the second issue DMC said it was of the opinion that no medical negligence can be attributed on the part of doctors of Max Hospital, Pitampura in the treatment administered by them to late Nikita Manchanda. However quashing the judgement of DMC, MCI on March 8, 2011 said that the treating team was negligent in not picking up the gravity of the situation, did not act in scientific manner of looking at alternatives but continued to attempt at symptomatic relief hence the contentions of appellant is upheld. "There are basically three options which MCI can take in this case. They can either give the doctors a warning or let them go or temporarily suspend revoke their license. However in extreme cases, doctors' license can also be permanently cancelled. The hospital can appeal against the order in the High Court," said a medico-legal expert who didn't wish to be named. 'Shut them down' The Delhi Medical Council (DMC) on March 21 asked the Directorate of Health Services (DHS) to close down a hospital and a clinic and take legal action against them after they were found to have caused deaths due to medical negligence. The DMC recommendation came after Mid DAY had reported how doctors at these two establishments had administered injections to two children leading to their deaths. On April 7, an infant had die after he was administered an injection by a doctor of Bharatiya Clinic at Daya Basti. On April 15, a five-year-old died after he was allegedly administered a wrong injection by doctor at Sharma Hospital and Maternity Centre in Rajeev Nagar. The DMC then called the concerned doctors to look into these cases of negligence. "We called the doctors to check their degrees and found that none of them had a recognised degree. The Sharma Hospital and Maternity Clinic was not even registered with DHS and the doctor was practicing Allopathy without holding requisite medical qualification," said Dr Girish Tyagi, Secretary, DMC. The council then asked DHS to close down both Sharma Hospital and Bharatiya Clinic with immediate effect and take legal action against them. "These kinds of practitioners should not be allowed to continue their practice. Two kids have lost their lives, it is a criminal offence. Sadly, as the victims belonged to poor families, no one has taken them seriously and did not even listen to their complaints. But we will not allow any such quacks to wander around the city," said Dr Anil Bansal, Chairman, Anti- Quackery Cell, DMC. The Other Side When MiD DAY contacted Max Hospital, the authorities were surprised and said they were ignorant about the MCI decision. The hospital spokesperson said, "We are surprised to learn that a document dated March 8, 2011 is stated to have been released by the MCI under RTI, for a case whose hearing is yet to be concluded by the MCI. In fact, we have received a notice from MCI dated April 9, 2011 indicating that the appeal has been admitted for hearing on May 10, 2011. The decision on the said appeal can only be given after hearing both the parties on May 10, 2011. Since the matter is still subjudice, any comment on the same may prejudice opinion. We don't consider it appropriate till the appeal is heard by the MCI."
  7. As reported by K P M Basheer in hindu.com on 30 August 2010: The Hindu : Kerala / Kochi News : RTI Act comes to doctor's aid RTI Act comes to doctor's aid Drive against medical association's Pepsi endorsement MCI step against IMA for breaking ethics code IMA says it will not endorse products in future KOCHI: A Kerala doctor's campaign, using the weapon of Right to Information Act, against an unethical practice by the Indian Medical Association (IMA) has turned triumphant with the Medical Council of India (MCI) taking steps against the IMA for endorsing commercial products. Last week the MCI served a show-cause notice on the IMA for violating its code of ethics by endorsing Pepsi's Tropicana fruit juice and Quaker oats which brought a mealy Rs.2.25 crore to the largest professional body of doctors in India. The step followed a decision by the MCI's Ethics Committee which met last week. The IMA has been asked to send in a reply by September 1. Dharam Prakash, IMA's secretary-general, told The Hindu over the phone that the association would soon reply to the notice and that it had already decided not to endorse any products in the future. He, however, said that the Pepsi endorsements would run through March next because of a contractual obligation. One-man campaign The MCI's hand was forced by a relentless one-man campaign by K.V. Babu, an ophthalmologist of Payyannur in Kannur district over the past two years. Irked by the unethical endorsement, which ‘clearly was for easy monetary gains,' Dr. Babu, himself a member of the IMA's central committee, shot off letter after letter to the IMA asking it to cancel it. He pointed out that under the Indian Medical Council (Professional Conduct, Etiquette and Ethics Regulations) 2002, endorsement of commercial products was an unethical act. (Section 6.1.1. says: “Soliciting of patients directly or indirectly, by a physician, by a group of physicians or by institutions or organizations is unethical.”) He moved the MCI, the statutory body authorised to regulate the medical profession, pressing it to get the endorsement cancelled. He petitioned the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare asking it to force the MCI to take action. He also moved the National Human Rights Commission. Obstacles Officials in the MCI and Health Ministry as well as the IMA stonewalled initially. But Dr. Babu wouldn't leave it at that. He extensively used the RTI Act to source relevant documents. He marshalled a plethora of information through RTI requests, which helped him argue his case effectively. In December 2009, the MCI made amendments to its Code of Ethics. Section 6.8 was added to regulate the “code of conduct for doctors and professional associations of doctors in their relationship with pharmaceutical and allied health sector industry.” Dr. Babu was quick to point out that the IMA came under the definition of ‘professional associations of doctors.' Meanwhile, a few months ago, the Central government sacked the MCI following corruption allegations against its then president Ketan Desai, who was later arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation. The reconstituted MCI took a lenient view of Dr. Babu's cause. It took the stand that the code of ethics applied to both individual doctors and their associations. Reacting to Dr. Prakash's stand that the Pepsi endorsement cannot be withdrawn before it ran its full course, Dr. Babu wanted the IMA to cancel the endorsement at once. “How can an act, once it has been proved to be unethical, be allowed to continue for a few more months?” He wants the MCI to take ‘appropriate and exemplary action' against all the 187 doctors who attended the April 12-13, 2008 meeting of the IMA's central committee held at Puri, Orissa. This committee had backed the IMA decision to endorse the Pepsi products.

    MCI recognition

    I am proud of my very lovely V.S.S Medical college, Burla, Sambalpur,ORISSA. I took MBBS admission in 1991 and joined PG in 2000 in this college. Now I think that my choice was very wrong though my home town is Sambalpur because in 2000 when I joined PG in Skin & VD department that time PG convener encouraged me a lot. But after one year I came to know that this SKIN PG degree is not recognised by Medical Council of India though it was permitted from state government. That time college principal told that it is the government duty to have MCI permission not to worry for the students. I was awarded best Pg student in first year PG and my thesis was also published in Indian journal of leprosy and declared as one of the references in Leprosy journal published from U.K in international level. During that period and even at the time of MD examination and relieving time in October 2003 our skin department was filled with all MCI required staffs (one associate professor / professor, two assistant professors and one lecturer). But after passing from VSS medical in 2003 my miserable time started. I was called for many interviews at national level. At some places I was not allowed to appear in interview hall and at some places even after my selection done I was not allowed to join duty only because my MD degree in Dermatology is not recognised by MCI (Medical Council of India). Finally admission to this seat was stopped since 2006. It is my right to know from you that what mistake I have done that I am suffering from it. If you would not have conducted PG entrance examination in 1999 by advertising Skin PG seat in prospectus and not done counseling for the admission in that seat, then could I join in VSS medical in a non recognised seat? So please help me when will I get justice from MCI and government of Orissa?
