Jharkhand Medical Council bans display of doctors’ degree not recognised by NMC 

Dhanbad: The Jharkhand State Medical Council (JSMC) has put a ban on the display of degrees by registered practitioners of modern scientific medicine (doctors) on a signboard that is not recognized by the medical college monitoring body of the country’s National Medical Commission (NMC).

An attention letter issued by the Jharkhand State Medical Council in this regard has instructed all doctors of the state and said, “All registered practitioners of scientific medicine are hereby advised not to display any degree/ qualification which is not recognized by Medical Council of India/ National Medical Commission”.

Jharkhand State Medical Council member secretary- cum-registrar Dr Bimlesh Kumar Singh, giving this information, today said that it has been seen that several doctors display signboards claiming to be specialists/super specialists in a branch without special qualifications in that branch. “ That is not only illegal but also unethical. Any claimed specialty/expertise must be backed by a special qualification in that branch, recognized by MCI / NMC,” he said.
