The Maharashtra Medical Council (MMC) planned to take action against a doctor at Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital, Pune, for the first time. To bait doctors for post-graduate degrees from a foreign university, not recognised in India respective move is to be initiated. As per a MMC member, the doctors who were issued notices for practicing and showing fake degrees, named Dr Sangram Jadhav of Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital as the coordinator.
MMC member and the President Dr. Kishore Birla said the took initiative to send notice to the hospitals questioning about its role. MMC member said,
“We then decided to cross-check the claims by these doctors. The Website of University of Seychelles, which provides these degrees, had details about Dr Jadhav being their exam coordinator. It also had mention of Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital, where he worked.”
He said that a clarification will likewise be asked on how the hospital center has signed a agreement of comprehension with a foreign university without consent from the government. In this way, 30 doctors from Maharashtra have been summoned for showing foreign degrees at their hospitals that are not perceived by the Medical Council of India and the MMC. Dr Taori said, all of them gave us chilling records of how they were baited by this hospital for the course with the University of Seychelles. Every doctor paid huge fee, as $6,000 and even more for the degree. The notification will be sent to the hospital and to the doctors in a week.
The fake degree racket must stop. Doctors are falling prey to the tricks by such universities. Indeed, even patients are mistaken for these fake degrees. Since the PMC is approved for offering enlistment to the healing facility, it will be their right to take action. CEO of the hospital Rekha Dubey said, we have effectively sent our statement and agreement duplicate to MMC. Our order is to just conduct exams. We are not offering the degree. It is for the doctors showing up for the exam who need to choose if the degree is recognized by the MCI or MMC or not.
