Three-member committee set up to prepare a blueprint for revamping MCI

Monday, April 4, 2016

New Delhi: The union government has reportedly set up a three-member committee to prepare a blueprint to revamp the Medical Council of India (MCI) as it looks to create more medical colleges and produce more doctors to cater to growing healthcare needs.

The high-powered committee has Niti Aayog vice chairman Arvind Panagariya, Prime Minister’s additional principal secretary P K Mishra and Niti Aayog chief executive officer Amitabh Kant as members, reports ToI.

The move follows recent recommendations of the parliamentary standing committee on health and family welfare that had called for a complete overhaul of the medical council as it has repeatedly “failed” in its mandate as a regulator of medical education and profession.
