Doctors shown as assistant professors in one MCI inspection become resident doctors in the next

Tuesday, December 15, 2015

New Delhi: Baba Farid University of Health Sciences, Faridkot vice chancellor Dr Raj Bahadur has written a letter to the MCI president Dr Jayshree Mehta seeking action against the guilty for the fraud allegedly committed at a medical college in Himachal Pradesh where doctors who were shown assistant professors in one inspection became resident doctors in the next.

Dr Bahadur in his letter, dated November 26, 2015, raised questions about why the MCI assessors could not verify that the same candidates — Dr Dinesh Kumar, Dr Barinder Pal Singh, Dr Kulwant Singh — in two successive inspections at Maharishi Markandeshwar Medical College and Hospital, Kumarhatti, Solan were at a higher or lower designation.

“The upper age limit for a senior resident is 35-40 years. These three doctors were 41, 44 and 56 years old. How come this did not alert the assessors? Either the assessors don’t know their job or they are dishonest. The forms are seconded by the head of the department, then by the principal and by the assessors. So every one of them had to be involved,” Dr G S Grewal, president, Punjab Medical Council, has been quoted by ToI as saying.
