Maharashtra government may allow lab technicians to run pathology labs in rural areas

Saturday, May 28, 2016

Mumbai: The state government is considering to give permission to lab technicians who have a diploma in medical lab technology (DMLT) and are registered with the Maharashtra Paramedical Council to run pathology laboratories in rural areas of the state.

Recently, the government had stated that only qualified pathologists recognised by the Medical Council of India (MCI) and the Maharashtra Medical Council (MMC) can run pathology labs and certify pathology reports. But now it has retracted from its statement citing the shortage of pathologists in the state.

Dr Sandeep Yadav, president, Maharashtra Association of Practising Pathologists and Microbiologists, has condemned the state government’s latest decision saying this is an excuse to patronise the technicians and individuals who are unregistered with the MMC, reports ToI.
