New Delhi: In order to tighten noose around the doctors violating medical norms, the Medical Council of India (MCI) is planning to take stringent action against them. The medical body has asked all the medical institutions to verify their teachers’ documents ranging from their identity proof, degree certificates, residence proof, experience certificates of previous organizations and other important documents and further submit them to the council.

According to the new rules and guidelines issued by the Medical Council, every medical teacher has to prove that he resides in the same city where he is employed.

 “The teacher has to submit electricity or telephone bills only in support of his address proof. No other document will be accepted as the mentioned document holds higher relevancy than any other certificate to establish the current location of the person,” said an MCI official.

Expressing disagreement over the MCI norms in connection with the address proof documents, the principal of Delhi-based medical institution said, “Acceptance of only electricity or telephone bill is totally irrelevant in current scenario. People hardly use landline connections or leave in their own flats now-a-days. The Council must accept other certificates in support of address proof.”

The documents required to be submitted by the teachers include photograph, identity proof, residence proof, photo copy of all education certificates and documents including MBBS certificates, joining and relieving letters of previous organisations along with experience certificates in duplicate.
