The General Body considered the opinion dated 27.03.2014 of ShriVikas Singh, Senior Advocate & Former Additional Solicitor General of India. The following queries were placed for his opinion by the Council:-

Query: i.

Whether it is valid/legal/permissible for the Medical Council of India (MCI) to continue/permit those persons to continue as members who had stood elected under the provisos to the provision of Section 3(1)(b) of the Act (which were sought to be introduced through the lapsed/expired ordinances) and when as of today it is the original section 3(1)(b) of the Act which stands as it is and remains in operation and admittedly, these persons do not fulfill the essential/mandatory conditions of Section 3(1)(b) of the Act?

ii. Whether persons falling in this category i.e. they are not covered by the provisions of Section 3(1)(b) of the Act i.e. who do not fulfill the essential/mandatory conditions of Section 3(1)(b) of the Act – can be permitted to attend the General Body meeting of the querist scheduled to be held on 28.03.2014 and especially when a person when elected fulfills the requirement but does not continue to do so – does not remain entitled to continue as the member of the MCI under section 3(1)(b) of the Act?

Shri Singh citing various reasons opined that in terms of the various features in the ordinance which were not there in the parent Act namely that in the parent Act, to be elected as a member of the Council under section 3(1)(b) one had to be a member of the Medical Faculty of the University as against under the amended Section as provided in the ordinance of 28.09.2013 to the effect that the person to be elected from a Health University could be part of the Medical Faculty of the college. This amendment for the purpose of eligibility to become a member of the Council is annulled upon the lapse of the ordinance dt. 28.09.2013 and eligibility criteria to become a member from any university under the original Section 3 (1)(b) of Indian Medical Council Act, 1956 wherein persons to be elected will have to be a member of the Medical Faculty of the University and not a member of the Medical Faculty of the college becomes operational.

The General Body noted the opinion of the Learned Senior Advocate and decided to recommend to the Central Govt. of the same for necessary action.

  • 2. Minutes of the last meeting of the Council - confirmation of.

This item was taken up along with item No. 3 pertaining to the action taken on the minutes of the last meeting of the General Body of the Council.

9

  • 3. Minutes of the last meeting of the Council – Action taken thereon.

It was pointed out by Dr.Ajay Kumar that the minutes of the last meeting of the Council have already been confirmed in terms of the report of the returning officer of the election conducted thereat and action taken thereon resulting in Election of the President, Vice-President, Executive Committee members & three members of the Postgraduate Committee. Therefore, the question of confirmation of the minutes afresh and noting the action thereon in this meeting today i.e. 28.3.2014 does not arise& thus both these items need to be withdrawn. The other members present at the meeting endorsed the same.

Dr.R.P.Srivastav also stated that the points raised by him in his E-mail dt.20.03.2014 in this regard stand redundant since they have been addressed vide the above decision.

Accordingly, the Chair declared that the items pertaining to confirmation of the minutes of the meeting of the General Body dated 10.12.2013 and action taken thereonare withdrawn.

  • 4. Address by the President. Dr. Jayshreeben Mehta, President delivered the Presidential address and copy of the same was circulated to the members of the General Body, wherein she brought out that –

After a gap of almost three and half years, the MCI was reconstituted by a notification dated 05.11.2013 and subsequent notification dated 09.12.2013 as a result of which the learned members present have been notified as a members of the MCI and the Council as defined at Section 2(b) of the Act has been put into place.

It was at the 137 th session of the General Body of the Council held on 10.12.2013, wherein the elections to the post of President, Vice-President, members of the Executive Committee and that of 3 members of the Postgraduate Committee came to be conducted, which were unanimous in nature which goes to bring out the consensus evolving capacity of this body created that has illustrious members like all of you.

It was in this meeting that she was bestowed with the privilege of being first amongst the equal as unanimously elected President of MCI and ‘custodian’ of your trust and faith. she know it for certain that this has definitely put an added responsibility on her shoulders, but her main strength is the committed co-operation of all the members of the Council and their determination to work as an united, cohesive team untiringly and incessantly towards the fulfillment of the ‘objectives’ for which MCI stands constituted by the Parliamentary enactment.

10

The nominations of the members to the Postgraduate Committee by the Govt. of India was notified on 09.01.2014 and 15.01.2014 respectively. Upon this the first meeting of the Postgraduate Committee constituted u/s 20 of the Indian Medical Council Act came to be held on 20.01.2014 wherein Dr. S.B. Siwach has been elected unanimously as the Chairman of the Postgraduate Committee.

As a matter of fact the dispensation of the responsibilities by the Council pervades all throughout the year. However, in reality the reconstitution of the Council took place almost at the end of the year 2013 and the entire yearly dispensation had to be dispensed of in the remainder of less than 4 months of the financial year ending on 31 st of March,2014.

Postgraduate task dispensation

The Presidentfurther stated thatthe extent and magnitude of the task dispensed can be gauged from the depiction that in the academic session 2014-15 the number of applications received for the starting as well as increase of postgraduate courses in various specialities were about 1446. These applications were received by the Council in the month of April- May,2013. Not a single application was decided till 10.12.2013. Since the

new team took the charge all applications were processed, assessments were completed in 1097 applications and PG Committee within a period of barely two months decided each of them and the office has sent the decisions on all these applications to the Central Govt. well before time i.e. 28.02.2014. Of the remaining, 303 applications were rejected/disapproved due to non- fulfillment of the prescribed requirements and 46 applications were withdrawn by the college authorities themselves. The entire task was worked out at the

postgraduate committee meetings Jan.,2014; 6 th & 7 th Feb.,2014; 12 25 th Feb.,2014.

th

held on 20 th & 21 st Jan.,2014; 28 th & 29 th & 13 th Feb.,2014, 20 th & 21 st Feb.,2014 and

The total number of applications received pertaining to super speciality courses are 159 of which the assessment has been completed pertaining to 98 applications till date. 17 applications were disapproved due to non- fulfillment of the prescribed requirements and returned back to Govt. of India and 19 were withdrawn by the applicant colleges.

About 600 assessment reports pertaining to recognition of postgraduate courses which were pending finalization for more than a year have been cleared by the Postgraduate Committee till date from its constitution on

20.01.2014, vide the

meetings held on 10 th & 11 th March, 2014 and 20 th & 24 th

March,2014 and they are included in the agenda of the today’s General Body. Here also the said task was completed by the PG Committee in just 3 weeks time. In such a short span at their disposal, the PG Committee led by Dr. S.B. Siwach as a Chairman has done a commendable job and therefore, I record my compliments to the learned Chairman and all the members of the postgraduate committee for their timely immaculate and diligent work. A word of appreciation is a must for the staff of PG section in making this task accomplished successfully in the prescribed time.

11

Undergraduate task dispensation:

The Presidentfurther stated thatthe status of task dispensation for the year 2014-15 as on 24.03.2014 is to the extent that of the 105 applications received for the establishment of new medical college, 36 applications have been disapproved and returned back to the Govt. of India. 8 have been sent to the Assessment Cell for the appointment of assessors and 61 are under consideration at various stages due to want of certain documents not provided by the applicants till date. Of the 79 applications received for renewal of permission, 37 assessments have been conducted and decisions have been taken with reference to 23 applications by the Executive Committee. 14 assessments reports are expected to be taken up for consideration at the ensuing meeting of the Executive Committee and 42 files are with the Assessment Cell for the appointment of assessors.

The number of applications for recognition/approval u/s 11(2) of the Act are 13 of which assessment have been conducted for 10 applications towards which the Executive Committee has taken necessary decision thereon. The number of applications for increase of seats for the year have been 42 against which assessment have been completed for 3 and the decision by the Executive Committee has been taken pertaining to one report. 19 applications have been disapproved and 21 files are with the assessment cell for appointment of assessors and other 2 files are under consideration at various stages for want of information from the concerned applicants. 124 applications have been received for the renewal of permission against the increase of seats of which assessments have been completed for 8 and decision by the Executive Committee has been taken for 6 applications. 2 assessment reports are in the pipeline for the purposes of consideration of the Executive Committee at its ensuing meeting and 116 files are with the assessment cell for the appointment of assessors. Of the 9 applications received for recognition/approval u/s 11(2) of the Act, all have been assessed and decisions have been taken by the Executive Committee.

Registration task dispensation:

The Council is required to grant provisional/permanent registration to Indian as well as foreign graduates, besides it also grants registration of additional qualification to the applicants who possess recognized postgraduate medical qualification from India and/or abroad. The number of applications for provisional registration of Indian graduates pending on 09.12.2013 were 37 of which 29 have been cleared as of now. Similarly, the number of applications for provisional registration of foreign graduates pending on the said date were 750 of which 599 have been cleared as of now. Likewise, of the 95 applications for permanent registration of Indian graduates pending on the said cut out date, 64 have been disposed of and of the 975 applications for grant of permanent registration to foreign graduates, 450 have been dealt with. Of the 300 applications for additional qualification certificates, 258 have been dealt with. The remaining applications for grant of permanent registration for foreign graduates are pending for want of verification of the relevant documents.

12

In terms of the legal opinion dated 23.01.2014, the matter in respect of grant of provisional/permanent registration to foreign graduates u/s 25(1), 13(3) and 13(4A) of the IMC Act,1956 was considered by the Executive Committee and in the light of the decision thereat in the context of Section 15 of the IMC Act,1956 a circular has been issued to the Registrar of all the State Medical Councils on 24.02.2014 for enrolment of such foreign graduates with the State Medical Councils respectively. No fresh applications from the foreign graduates for the grant of provisional/permanent registration are being entertained by the Council from 01.03.2014.

Issuance of Eligibility certificates:

The status of dispensation of eligibility certificates is also significantly satisfactory in as much as that of the 21,166 applications, received from the year 2009-2010 onwards, till 09.12.2013, 7818 were disposed of which was 36.9% of the total task at hand. However, from 10.12.2013 till 26.03.2014 well over 5052 applications have been processed which speaks volumes about the efficient dispensation of the task at hand.

Administrative Efficacy:

It was also ensured that the administrative efficacy is strengthened and the functioning of the employees of the Council is disciplined. Surveillance system has been tightened and all the CCTV cameras have been put to effective functioning. As a result of this, the staff attendance and punctuality has improved remarkably. The visitors entry has been restricted exclusively to visiting hours only. Security system has been substantially improved. All daily wages staff has been phased out so that fresh and efficient appointments can be effected against the same.

Academic tasks dispensation:

In addition, to the targeted efficient dispensation of the tasks at hand, the academic frame towards formulation of the academic policies by the Council has been provided by constitution of the Academic Council thereunder recommendations with regard to rationalization the regulations of the MCI, update of the national faculty development programme, launching of the advance course for the up-gradation of the faculty orientation, strengthening the medical education units in various medical schools, up-gradation of the said units to full fledged departments of medical education at the nodal centres recognized by MCI and evolving an apical cell in the Council for the long term co-ordinated fulfillment of the faculty development programme have been evolved.

The concept of accreditation of medical schools vital for ensuring incorporation of quality concerns, has been worked out. Likewise, the requirement of putting into place the competency based curriculum for undergraduate, postgraduate and super speciality courses is also underway

which will give a long term fillip to the face and facets of medical education of

the country in times to come.

All these recommendations of the Academic

Council were considered by the Executive Committee and these

13

recommendations are part of the agenda for today’s meeting for taking final decision.

Participation at International Forum:

She was happy to share with you that the MCI as a part of the South East Regional network of the various Councils in the South East Asian Region under WHO has been assigned with the responsibility of the convener of the multi country group for the purposes of registration and licensing modalities. It has also been incorporated as a member for the multi country working groups on the accreditation of medical schools in South East Asia Region as well as for evolving of competency based curriculum respectively. The inputs provided by the Council at the said forum have been widely appreciated by all the 12 member countries other than India.

Disciplinary tasks:

She would like to inform the learned members of the Council that some cases in regard to procurement of fake/false and forged permanent registration certificates were detected during the period 2009 to 2013. However, the same remained unprocessed for necessary action during the impending period. As such, considering the gravity of the matter wherein it had emerged that impersonation, cheating and fraud had taken place in obtaining the registration from the MCI, the matter was handed over to the investigating agencies including the CBI so that the guilty including the employees and officials of the Council, if any, are appropriately punished as per law. I am making it loud and clear that all those who have colluded, in any wrong impermissible act in the eyes of law be it anybody high or low including the officials and employees of the Council, nobody would be spared on the consideration of fear or favour. The matters would be remitted to investigating agencies as and when needed so that the guilty are booked and the guilt is punished.

She emphasized with the active co-operation of all the members of the Council, the functioning of the Council would be accountable, transparent and to the satisfaction of all the stakeholders in times to come.

Motion of thanks to the Presidential address was moved by Dr. VedPrakash Mishra and seconded by Dr. Ajay Kumar on which several members made lauding observations and suggestions which are as under:-

President, officials and employees of the Council need to be complemented for timely dispensation of the task in an effective manner. Letters of appreciation be issued to the concerned officials and employees of the Council towards their committed efforts facilitating effective dispensation of responsibilities, to be included in their respective service records. Non-conferment of Dr. B.C. Roy Memorial Awards during last 4 years and therefore inevitable necessity of holding the same ceremonially forthwith for all the cumulative years.

  • 18. Violation of MCI’s code of ethics by the Indian Academy of Paediatrics (IAP)-Reg. Read: the matter with regard to violation of MCI’s code of ethics by the Indian Academy of Paediatrics (IAP). This item was considered together with item No.19 since both pertain to the same subject.

The

Council

Committee:-

noted

the following recommendations of the Executive

“The Executive Committee considered the matter alongwith opinion of the Law Officer and the Committee accepted the legal opinion. The Committee also considered the relevant aspect that the IMC Act, 1956 is for the constitution of the MCI and maintenance of medical register and for the matters connected therewith. The entire scheme of the Act makes it abundantly clear that it deals with the medical practitioners who get registered with the State Medical Council(s) and whose names are then entered in the Indian Medical Register. The prescription of standards of professional etiquettes and a code of ethics postulated u/s 20A of the Act is also with regard to the conduct of the medical practitioners. It is to be seen that this Act

24

(IMC Act, 1956) has nothing to do with regard to conduct of any association and / or society. The MCI under the Act have no jurisdiction whatsoever regarding any association / society.

The clarity in the scheme of the Act in this regard i.e. to say that the MCI has no jurisdiction whatsoever regarding the conduct of any association / society, does not require anything further in support of this legal position, however, recently, in a case where besides allegation of medical negligence having been made against the treating doctors, grievance was also raised against Max Hospital, Pitampura, Delhi. The Ethics Committee of the Council in its observations / recommendations regarding the allegations of medical negligence had also made adverse observations against the said hospital. The hospital had challenged the decision of the MCI where the Ethics Committee had made adverse observations against the hospital, by filing a writ petition being W.P.(C) 1334/2013 - MaxHospital, Pitampura Vs. Medical Council of India. On behalf of Max Hospital, it was, inter alia, contended before the Hon’ble Delhi High Court that the MCI regulations do not govern or have any concern with the facilities, infrastructure or running of the Hospitals and that the Ethics Committee of the MCI acting under the Regulations had no jurisdiction to pass any direction or judgment on the infrastructure of any hospital which power rests solely with the concerned State Govt.

The MCI had filed an affidavit in this writ petition filed by MaxHospital before the Hon’ble Delhi High Court. In the MCI affidavit, it had been, inter alia, submitted as under:-

“………

..

(iii)

That the jurisdiction of MCI is limited only to take

action against the registered medical professionals under the Indian Medical Council (Professional Conduct, Etiquette and Ethics) Regulations, 2002 (hereinafter the 'Ethics Regulations') and has no jurisdiction to pass any order affecting rights/interests of any Hospital, therefore the MCI could not have passed and has not passed, any order against the petitioner which can be assailed before this Hon'ble Court in writ jurisdiction……………”

After consideration of the legal position and the affidavit submitted on behalf of the MCI, the Hon’ble High Court in its judgment dt. 10.01.14, in the above-mentioned writ petition filed by MaxHospital – held as under:-

“………7. It is clearly admitted by the Respondent that it has no jurisdiction to pass any order against the Petitioner hospital under the 2002 Regulations. In fact, it is stated that it has not passed any order against the Petitioner hospital. Thus, I need not go into the question whether the adequate infrastructure facilities for appropriate post-operative care were infact in existence or not in the Petitioner hospital and whether the principles of natural justice had been followed or not while passing the impugned order. Suffice it to say that the observations dated 27.10.2012 made by the Ethics Committee

25

do reflect upon the infrastructure facilities available in the Petitioner hospital and since it had no jurisdiction to go into the same, the observations were uncalled for and cannot be sustained.

  • 8. Since the MCI had no jurisdiction to go into the infrastructure

facilities, I need not also go into the aspect that in the year

2011, the facilities available in the hospital were inspected and were found to be in order.

  • 9. The petition therefore has to succeed. I hereby issue a writ of

certiorari quashing the adverse observations passed by the MCI

against the Petitioner hospital highlighted in Para 1 above………”

On the plain and simple reading of the provision of the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956, it is apparent that the ambit of statutory provisions relating to professional conduct of registered medical practitioners under the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956 is restricted only to persons registered as medical practitioners with the State Medical Council and whose names are entered into the Indian Medical Register maintained u/s 21 of the Act. Under the scheme of the Act, the complaint of alleged misconduct against a medical practitioner is to be entertained by the concerned State Medical Council. In the event a State Medical Council removes the name of any medical practitioner from the State Medical Register, the MCI becomes obliged to remove the name of the said medical practitioner also from the Indian Medical Register. There is no ambiguity of any kind in the scheme of the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956 that it neither deals with nor provides for any conduct of any association / society and deals only with the conduct of individual registered medical practitioners. There is no other interpretation, which is possible under the Act.

Hence, any reference to “professional association of doctors” in terms of clause 6.8 of the Indian Medical Council (Professional Conduct, Etiquette and Ethics) Regulations, 2002 is untenable. Further, independently and additionally the affidavit filed on behalf of the MCI before the Hon’ble Delhi High Court in the writ petition filed by Max Hospital stating the correct legal position and the acceptance thereof by the Hon’ble High Court in its judgment dt. 10.01.14 – leaves no room for any doubt whatsoever regarding the complete absence of jurisdiction of the MCI in relation to conduct of any association / society.

Hence, any action that may have been taken by the MCI opposed to the above-mentioned only possible interpretation regarding the scheme of the Act, against any Association by the MCI – the same would be non est / nullity for want of authority and jurisdiction. Accordingly, any proceedings that have been initiated by the MCI against any Association by virtue of clause 6.8, being without authority/jurisdiction shall be a nullity, non-existent. As such, any such proceedings stand annulled with immediate effect for want of authority and jurisdiction.

26

The Council also noted that the Executive Committee of the Council at its meeting held on 17/11/2009 (vide Item No.67) considered the report of the Sub Committee in regard to building a healthy relationship based on self regulation between doctors and pharmaceutical and allied health sector industries so as to prevent unscrupulous practices by the doctors. Amongst other things the Executive Committee proposed about the “Code of Conduct for Doctors and Professional Association of doctors in their relationship with pharmaceutical and allied health sector industry”. It was proposed therein that in dealing with the pharmaceutical and allied health sector industry a doctor and professional associations of doctors, separate codes of conduct were worked out.

  • 1. Code for doctors shall deal with the issues pertaining to the following:

    • a) Gifts

    • b) Travel facilities

    • c) Hospitality

    • d) Cash or monetary grants

    • e) Medical Research

    • f) Maintaining Profession autonomy

    • g) Affiliation

    • h) Endorsement

With reference to relation of professional medical associations/institutions and organizations, it was brought out that ”relation of professional medical associations, institutions & organizations of doctors that are constituted under law with pharmaceutical and health care industries are very important as the office bearers of these are professional doctors and they have the responsibility to uphold the prestige

of the profession for which a separate code of conduct needs to be worked out as under:

  • 2. Code for professional associations shall deal with the issues pertaining to the following:

    • a) Sponsorship

    • b) Endorsement and

    • c) Financial Grants

The said recommendation of the Executive Committee were considered by the General Body of the Council held on 18/11/2009 (vide Item No.298) wherein it was approved that the Indian Medical Council (professional conduct, etiquette and ethics) regulations 2002 be amended by incorporation of a clause 6.8 titled “Code of conduct for doctors and professional association of doctors in their relationship with pharmaceutical and allied health sector industry”. However, under the said clause the proposal of the Executive Committee in regard to code of conduct for relation of professional medical associations/institutions/organizations of doctors constituted under law with pharmaceutical and allied health care industries was not approved.

In accordance with the modified recommendations of the General Body of the Council the Govt. of India approved of the said amendment which was notified on

27

10 th December, 2009 titled as “Indian Medical Council (Professional Conduct , Etiquette & Ethics). (Amendment) Regulations 2009.

The said notified amendment to the regulation did not include code of conduct for professional associations of doctors with health care industries ..

However, the inadvertent error which seems to have occurred was that the caption of clause 6.8 in the regulation talks of code of conduct for doctors and professional association of doctors. As a matter of fact the word ‘professional association of doctors’ included in the caption of clause 6.8 should have been correspondingly deleted.

Further in terms of the meeting of the Sub Committee held on 18.2.2010 for consideration of review/revision of the Indian Medical Council (Professional Conduct, Etiquette and ethics) Regulation 2002, a Draft of the proposed new Ethics Regulations was made. The same was considered in the meeting of the Executive Committee of the Council held on 4/3/2010 vide Item No.72 wherein it was

unanimously approved that the “The title of the Section 6.8 be amended by deleting the words “and Professional Associations” whereby Section 6.8 would read as

under:-

“6.8 Code of conduct for doctors in their relationship with pharmaceutical and allied health sector industry”.

The said decision of the Executive Committee was approved by the General Body at its meeting held on 11/3/2010 vide Item No.98. The necessary draft of the amended regulation to the required effect titled “Indian Medical Council (Professional Conduct, Etiquette and Ethics) (Amendment) Regulations, 2010,” was communicated by the Secretary Medical council of India to the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of India, New Delhi for their approval u/s 33 of the IMC Act 1956 vide this office letter dated 11.3.2010 and the letter of approval and authentication was received from the Government of India vide their letter dated 24/5/2010,wherebty it was to be notified in the official gazette of the Govt. of India. However, the Board of Governors(BOG) did not notify the said amendment in terms of the communication from the Govt. of India.

The BOG recommended further amendment to the penalty clause. The amended draft notification was sent to Government of India for approval by the Council on 3/5/2011, in response to which the Govt. of India by their communication dated 19/5/2011 addressed to the Chairman, BOG urged that while sending proposals for amending regulations, apart from the draft of the gazette notification, a comparison in a tabular form indicating the existing regulation in one column and the proposed amendments in the next column, even if the proposal seeks to introduce a new clause or sub clause be furnished to facilitate the examination of the proposal in the Ministry and seeking approval from the Hon’ble Health Minister.

By another communication dated 20/5/2011, the Under Sectary to the Govt. of India informed the Chairman, BOG in response to the communication dated 3/5/2011 to the effect that the proposal be modified in the mode and manner as has been sought vide their communication dated 19/5/2011. A reminder dated 13/6/2011

28

was sent by the

Under Secretary to the Govt. of India to

the Chairman BOG to

expedite the said matter. However, neither any action nor any communication has

been sent by the BOG to the Govt. of India till they laid down their office on

05.11.2013.

It is self evident that the Board of Governors have modified the amended regulation approved by the Government of India in respect to the penalty clauses only and the said amended proposal is pending consideration. The material reality is that the amendment to the title of 6.8 as approved by the Govt. of India by their letter dated 24/5/2010 deleting the words “and Professional Associations” wherein it has been specifically asked that it be notified in the official gazette on its receipt and has been authenticated as well has remained un-notified till date.

In view of the above, the Council unanimously decided that the amendment to title of section 6.8 of the Indian Medical Council (Professional Conduct Etiquette and Ethics) Regulations, 2002vide notification dated 10/12/2009 and further amended by deletion of the words “and professional association of doctors” duly approved, and authenticated by the Govt. of India vide their communication dated 24/5/2010 be notified forthwith in the official gazette of the Government of India.

    2002.

Amit Biswas, Under Secretary to the Govt. of India, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, has requested the Council to rectify the proposed amendment stating that in place of “legible preferably in capital letters’ the following phrase may be added – “legible and only in capital letters’.

The Executive Committee further noted that inadvertently in earlier decision, the word ‘preferably’ had not been deleted in the proposed amendment and therefore decided to rectify the amendment as follows:-

“legible and in Capital Letters”

  • 21. Approval of Annual Report and Audited Statement of Accounts of the MCI for the academic year 2012-2013. Read: the matter with regard to approval of Annual Report and Audited Statement of Accounts of the MCI for the academic year 2012-2013.

the

recommendations

of

the

Executive

“The Executive Committee of the Council noted that the item regarding approval of Annual Report of the Council for the year 2012-13 was included in the agenda for the meeting of the Executive Committee which was scheduled to be held on 18/02/2014. Meanwhile a D.O letter dated 10/02/2014 was received from the Additional Secretary, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of India stating that the annual report of the Council has to be placed in the LokSabha and therefore, requested the Council to furnish 50 copies each of Annual Report for the year 2012-13 both in English and Hindi alongwith audited annual accounts, urgently latest by 12/02/2014. As it was not possible for the office of the Council to submit the Annual Report by 12/02/2014 as the meeting of the Executive Committee was scheduled to be held on 18/02/2014, therefore in view of the urgency of the matter, it was decided by the President to get the approval of the Annual Report from the members of the Executive Committee by circulation.

Accordingly a letter dated 11/02/2014 was sent to all the members of the Executive Committee through e-mail and also contacted telephonically and the members approved the Annual Report for the year 2012-13.

In view of above, the Executive Committee ratified the decision of the President for sending the Annual Report for the year 2012-13 to the

30

Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of India, which was already approved by the members of Executive Committee by circulation.”

However, the members observed that the approval of annual report and audited statement of accounts of the MCI for the academic year 2013-14 would be attributable to the reconstituted Medical Council of India and therefore they would not take the onus of the annual report/audited statement of the previous three impending years. They emphasized that there has been a definite statutory lapse in respect of timely approval and submission thereto of the annual report/audited statement to the concerned authorities and the responsibility thereto needs to be fixed on those responsible for the same.

  • 22. Appointment of Joint Secretary in the Council Office. Read: the matter with regard to selection of Joint Secretary in the office of the Medical Council of India was placed before the Executive committee of the Council.

The

Council

Committee:-

approved

the

following

recommendations

of

the

Executive

“The Executive Committee considered the matter with regard to the appointment of Joint Secretary in the Council Office and noted as under: -

  • (i) It was way back on 26.10.1994 that the office of the Medical Council of India had been informed by the Ministry of Health & F.W., Govt. of India that if the MCI does not require Government grants for creating new posts / revise pay scales and can meet the additional expenditure for such purposes out of its own resources raised from inspection fees etc., the Council would take its own decisions in all such matters. It is a matter of record that this position has remained in existence from October 1994 itself in that, all the necessary decisions for new posts and/or for revision of pay scales etc. have been continuously and consistently taken by the MCI without there being any requirement for obtaining any approval from any other authority. Needless to state that the approvals for these purposes, where there is no additional liability for the Government of India, have always been granted by the appropriate authorities of the MCI, including the Executive Committee of the Council.

(ii) It is also a matter of record that the MCI undertakes the necessary steps for appointment / promotions of various posts in the office of the Council, in accordance with the Recruitment Rules which are approved by the Govt. of India. The status of the said creation of posts as on 10.12.2013 is depicted as under:-

Both these tables show that all these posts in the MCI which had stood created by the decision of the Executive Committee and/or General Body of the Council/Board of Governors from 1994 onwards are without there being any requirement for obtaining any approval from any other authority.

(iii)

Insofar as the post of Joint Secretary in the MCI is concerned, that as on August 2010, there was 1 post of Joint Secretary in the MCI which was held by Dr. P. Prasannaraj. The Board of Governors had then created 1 post of Jt. Secretary in August 2010. The then Board of Governors had taken a decision to promote Dr. Devinder Kumar as Joint Secretary to the one post of Joint Secretary which was newly created by them. The promotion of Dr. Devinder Kumar was approved by the Board of Governors on 24.08.2010 and he came to be promoted as the Joint Secretary on that date. Thereafter, the Board of Governors had taken a decision on 07.10.2010 for creating one post of Additional Secretary, 2 posts of Joint Secretaries, 2 posts of Deputy Secretaries and 3 posts of Assistant Secretaries in the MCI. The entire financial burden for these additional posts is from within the resources of the MCI and no further sanction / grant has been sought from the Ministry of Health, Govt. of India. Further, no approval of Ministry of Health & Family welfare, Gov. of India, was taken by the Board of Governors either while creating all these posts or while promoting Dr. Devinder Kumar to the newly created post of Joint Secretary by the Board of Governors.

(iv)

In the meanwhile, Dr. P. Prasannaraj who was holding the post of Joint Secretary, had been promoted to the post of Additional Secretary. The vacancy of the post of Joint Secretary on the promotion of Dr. P.

33

Prasannaraj as Additional Secretary, had been advertised. 17 applications had been received.

  • (v) The quantum and the nature of work including the critical time bound schedules which are required to be met by the office of the Council, is known to one and all. This, therefore, does not permit the Council to allow any of the posts to remain vacant as it creates shortage of hands thereby creating impediment / obstructions in the discharge of time bound functions to be carried out by the Office of the MCI. It had, therefore, become necessary that the process for selection of the Joint Secretary to the post which had been vacated by Dr. P. Prasannaraj, is completed as expeditiously as possible. The Selection Committee for this purpose was convened for 2 nd January, 2014. The applicants had been interviewed by the Selection Committee and the proceedings of the Selection Committee stood concluded and they had put their recommendations to be placed before the Executive Committee of the Council in its meeting scheduled on 3 rd January, 2014. The Executive Committee after detail deliberations unanimously decided to approve the recommendation of selection committee and directed the office to issue the appointment order to Dr. ReenaNayyer for the post of Jt. Secretary.

In view of above, it may be requested to Ministry of Health & F.W. to forward the copy of the so-called complaint by one ShriAmrender Kumar, as referred to in their letter dated 02.01.2014, it may also be reiterated that the steps which have been taken by the office of the MCI for concluding the process of filling up of the vacancy of Joint Secretary is completely in accordance with the Recruitment Rules. This post of Joint Secretary is duly sanctioned. There is no requirement under the Recruitment Rules for seeking any sanction from the Government. The position in this regard in existence since 26.10.1994, as stated above, may be reiterated. The candidate who has been selected for the post of Jt. Secretary, fulfills and meets all the requirements and has been found to be the most suitable candidate for filing up of this sanctioned post of Joint Secretary of the MCI and it was neither possible nor was it open for the MCI, having regard to the time bound statutory functions to be discharged by it, to not to fill-up the vacant post of Joint Secretary and not to conclude the selection process in this behalf.

In view of above, the Executive Committee decided that the decision so taken may be made known to the Director (ME), Ministry of Health & F.W., Govt. of India and the appointment order may be issued to Dr. ReenaNayyer accordingly.

The above decision of the Executive Committee was read and confirmed in the meeting itself and the office was directed to issue the appointment order to Dr. ReenaNayyar”.

The above decision of the Executive Committee was conveyed to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare vide Council’s letter dated 06.01.2014.
