New Delhi: The Union government has decided in principle to dissolve the scam-hit Medical Council of India. In its place there will be a seven-member doctors panel which will carry out the functions of the MCI till the Indian Medical Council Act is amended.
The Health ministry will identify the doctors on the panel that will include former AIIMS chief Dr Venugopal and Dr Deka. The medical council is to be dissolved through an ordinance.
The panel, empowered with the approval authority of medical colleges for now, will also submit a blue print to the Prime Minister on constitution of a new body to replace the Medical Council of India.
