New Committee on MCI reforms, Parliamentarian Questions Intent

The issue of MCI restructuring has caused quite a ruckus in the parliament with the move of the government to appoint a fresh panel to suggest the reforms for the Apex Medical Regulator. This has indeed not gone well with some, who have questioned the need of a new committee report, when already a larger standing committee on health is given its recommendations, earlier this year. The
ISSUE Parliamentary standing committee on Health submitted its report the Parliament on March 8 this year, calling for radical reforms to the system. The very next day BJP MP Om Prakash Yadav filed a petition on MCI reforms and the issue was taken up by the petitions committee. Following this, on May 21st, 2016, Lok Sabha Secretariat announced that a petitions committee will now study the medical reforms needed in the country. The  15 member committee further sought memoranda from “experts, individuals, institutions, organisations and other stakeholders interested in the subject matter” by June 10, after which it will take oral evidence through hearings.
