Health Care Comments Off

In the National conference of State Medical Councils held on 18-19th Feb 2012 at India Habitat Center New Delhi, the following was unanimously resolved

Resolved that

“ The proposed  THE NATIONAL COMMISSION FOR HUMAN RESOURCES: FOR HEALTH BILL, 2011 being proposed by the Ministry of Health Govt. of India and presently with the parliamentary standing committee is unanimously opposed in its present format, as the council members felt that the present MCI and State Medical Councils  needs to be strengthened and implemented effectively  preserving the present MCI  and State Medical councils with democratic norms instead of  taking their  autonomy”.

This has significant implications as the India Medical association has already opposed this bill.
