Zero tolerance of malpractices

Health Care Comments Off

Dear Colleague

In the recently concluded state leadership meeting held in IMA House, Delhi on 1st & 2nd April, 2017, it was unanimously resolved that IMA will have zero tolerance for cuts, commissions, unethical practices and getting money from establishments or pharma companies for no services provided.

If any member is found to indulge in such malpractices, IMA will not stand with the concerned member at the time of action by any appropriate authorities.

IMA also appreciated the ‘no incentive’ schemes already started in Telangana, Kerala, Uttarakhand, West Bengal and Tamil Nadu. Others are requested to issue the same directions to their members.

The same decision was also taken in the National Conference of State Medical Council, which was held on 25th & 26th March, 2017 in Delhi.

The same is also as per IMA policy decision at the Central Council in December 2016 at Amritsar and the WMA President Dr Ketan Desai inaugural address in October at Taipei in 2016.

This being an important issue, you are hereby directed to inform all the members of your respective branch to follow the same.

Dr KK Aggarwal
National President IMA

Hony Secy Gen, IMA
