4 member MCI team visits Kalahandi Jaring Medical College

Bhubaneswar,November 2: A four-member team of the Medical Council of India (MCI) today is reportedly inspecting into the infrastructural, appointed faculty and financial status of the contentious institution in the state.

Previously, Supreme Court on Friday last week rejected the plea of  Kalahandi Jaring-based Sardar Rajas Medical College's private management.

Amazingly, the Kalahandi district administration has been kept in dark about the visit.

The team is also scheduled to interact with the aggrieved 124 medicos whose fate still hangs in balance.

Pertinent to note that, the piquant situation has arisen after the MCI has withdrawn its recognition and affiliation raising objections to infrastructural lacunae and inadequate faculty strength.

The Orissa High Court in its recent verdict in favour of the students has ruled to accommodate the 124 medicos in other medical colleges in the state and the MCI has also nodded for it.

In the wake of the High Court verdict and following months-long agitation by both the medicos and district citizens as well as pressures exerted on the Odisha Government during the last Monsoon Session of the Assembly, State Government 
has decided to accommodate the 124 medicos, admitted to Jaring-based Sardar Rajas Medical College, in three private medical colleges in the state capital here.
