Supreme court mandated Oversight committee yet again wrote to the Medical council of India, all for the wrong reasons of disobedience. Earlier this month also Oversight committee alleged autocratic manner of functioning of MCI and passing orders without consulting Oversight committee.
On the matter of DNB for teaching posts the Ministry of health and family welfare asked Oversight committee to consider DNB for teaching posts for which the oversight committee agreed. However the Medical counsel of India is obstructing the way for DNB doctors to join academic posts in medical colleges.
MCI earlier misguided Oversight committee by giving false and misleading information about DNB curriculum and their stand about DNB is not only illegal but unethical” Said representative of Association of DNB Doctors. “We have approached Dr Guleria of AIIMS who is a member of the Oversight committee with correct facts about DNB along with the proofs and Oversight committee have taken cognizance of the representation and asked MCI for clarification. We are hopeful for a positive outcome” Added the representative of Association of DNB Doctors
