Chandigarh: Punjab Medical Council (PMC) has reportedly sent notices to four private doctors from Ludhiana and six from Patiala for allegedly receiving financial transactions in the range of Rs 6 lakh to Rs 12 lakh between the year 2010 and 2014 from multinational pharmaceutical companies.

“During scrutiny of records received by PMC, it was noticed that registered medical practitioners with the state council have received financial transactions from pharmaceutical companies.
