Much controversial TEQ (Teacher’s Eligibility Qualification) committee of Medical Council gets its new chairman. Dr Annil Mahajan is presently Head Department of General Medicine, Government Medical College Jammu. He has already served the highest body of Medical Council of India in the capacity of Executive Committee Member, governing, regulating and monitoring medical education of the country.
June 5th 2017 TEQ Amendment Notification of MCI once again bought in lime light the Equivalence Ghost of DNB Vs MD. Since MOHFW is strictly against any such downgrading of DNB and FRCS etc, this change might be important in coming future. He shall be heading as Chairman of TEQ Committee and shall be primarily looking after all the policy affairs related to medical teachers, eligibility, promotions, recruitment and all other related affairs of faculty members of all private and government medical colleges of the country.
