Only 30% or less doctors are registered IMA members, however even those doctors who are not even members of IMA are receiving Promotional SMS to join the event. In insider told Medical reporter that millions are spent on the advertisement campaign to save MCI. From where IMA is getting personal data of Doctors is a matter of concern. Earlier it was reported that Adhar data is out dfo sale at the rate of 10 paise per entry.
Also an urgent membership drive is started to meet the funds. The membership drive is on discounted rates. The membership message reads as “IMA/DMA Membership Drive. 50% rebate in membership fees. Rs. 5000 for single & Rs 7500 for Couple t membership form as soon as possible latest by 21st March 2018 at IMA EDB Office” Its pertinent to mention that IMA and MCI basic structure is similar and one can see many same members holding positions in both IMA and MCI but with NMC the case will be different.
