JK Medical Council to function soon
Srinagar, Nov 23: The State Health Department on Wednesday decided to reconstitute the Jammu and Kashmir Medical Council after having consultation with the Law Department over the issue.
While talking to Greater Kashmir Health Secretary G A Peer said, “We had a detailed discussion with the officials of law department over the formation of 13 member medical council including its president. The department asked us to finalize the selection list of the candidates either elected or nominated for the various posts of the council.”
Greater Kashmir in its Sunday edition had carried a news story about the Jammu and Kashmir State Medical Council being headless for past 16 months since the day its ex-officio head Dr Parihar completed his tenure in July 2010.
The Council oversees the medical profession in the state and provides registration certificates to doctors.
Every year thousands of doctors from the Valley based medical colleges as well as outside apply for registration in the council. According to officials the council has to undertake various processes in registering doctors especially those who pursue their studies from outside universities.
“Due to the headless council it took more than four months for any doctor to get his registration certificate. The same process usually used to get completed in a month,” an official said.
When contacted the Law Secretary said an SRO in this regard would be prepared soon after which the 13 member team including president would join the office.
