MCI asks CBI to investigate medical seat selling scam

Image: IBNLive The Medical Council of India (MCI) on Friday wrote to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) asking for a probe into a sting operation conducted by CNN-IBN which exposed the sale of post-graduate medical seats in colleges across three states for crores of rupees. The CNN-IBN sting had caught five colleges taking crores for admissions. The MCI has handed over the sting operation tapes to the CBI. The CBI will also probe a complaint filed by BSP MP Seema Upadhyay who was reportedly asked to pay Rs 1.5 crore for her daughter's admission in Subharti medical college in Meerut. Upadhyay, an MP from Fatehpur Sikri, has now written a letter to the MCI, the Health Minister and the CBI, asking for a probe into the illegal sale of medical seats in Subharti medical college. "When I went there for my daughter's admission, they hinted that I needed to pay money for a seat. I spoke to students who were studying there and found out the college charges anything b

New Proposed Course in MBBS: Medical Ethics

With doctor-patient relationship plummeting to a new low due to a sharp rise in medical negligence cases, the Medical Council of India (MCI) has asked the government to incorporate a two-month course in "medical ethics and professionalism" in the revised MBBS curriculum. . Officials said the apex medical body recently notified this as a part of new graduate medical regulations sent to the ministry of health and family welfare for implementation. The new course, which will increase the MBBS course from 4.5 years to 4.7 years, will address issues such as bedside manners and commercialisation of healthcare among others. "As things stand, instead of the existing 12-month first year MBBS course, students will be put through a 14-month first year course. It is a foundation course. Medical ethics and professional development will be the core focus," said Dr Purshottam Lal, member, MCI board of governors. Do you think "Medical Ethics" course should b

And the waiting continues......................

As you probably have guessed, its about the NEET case. On 23rd April seeing the attitude of CJI towards the NEET it looked like the case is going to end soon. Hon'ble CJI directed the MCI council to conclude their arguments on 25th April (next date of hearing) and case was marked for final disposal. He even rejected the request of other lawyers to present their arguments in the court and directed them to submit written arguments. A hope rose among the 90000 doctors that finally the verdict and results will be out by 1st week of May and finally they will be able to carry on. It was also a relief because summer vacation of supreme court is about to start and secondly CJI Hon'ble Kabir is going to retire in July 2013 which would make the conditions worse as the new CJI will again have to study the case from the beginning which would take another few weeks, that means still long wait for doctors. But unfortunately on 25th April the SC gave another date ie 30th April, and so

MCI seeks more time in NEET PG court case

New Delhi: The Medical Council of India (MCI) on Thursday sought more time from the Supreme Court to make a written submission in the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) case. The Supreme Court hinted at considering extension of dateline for admission and interim order could be announced in the next two weeks. Many state government and private universities had moved the apex court against the MCI decision to hold a common entrance test. In February 2012, the MCI had announced the NEET, an all-India exam for entrance into MBBS and Post Graduation courses. The idea was to simplify the admission process and do away with multiple entrance exams conducted by each state and private medical college. Several state government and private colleges, however, had raised objections and took the MCI to court. Insisting that the ruling in the case will take some time, the Supreme Court had asked the MCI, state universities and private institutions to conduct their respective entrance e

Indian medicos, who appeared for NEET PG and DNB exams in Nov - Dec 2012 enjoyed The 1st April 2013 with DNB and NEET PG result declaration rumors. Today is 1st April and traditionally it is celebrated as 'April Fool's Day'. Friends try to make fool of other friends on this day for fun. Among medical community, as soon as clock hit 12AM on 1st April 2013,  FB and other medical websites were flooded with rumors of declaration of DNB and NEET results. The students who got trapped made fool of themselves. Some students took it lightly and joined in this humor to try and fool other medicos, but some got angry and started abusing the original posters of such rumors. Medicos who are frustrated to the extreme due to veryyyy long delay of NEET and DNB results, tried to lighten their tension by playing such pranks. On the other hand apart from jokes, DNB and NEET results have not been declared yet. Next NEET PG hearing is on 2nd April 2013 (tomorrow). Stay on NEET results i
