In order to curb the rampant Cut Commission Practice in the state, the Maharashtra government has mulled a law. The draft of the law is likely to be tabled before the cabinet for discussion this week.
While speaking to My Medical Mantra, Dr Praveen Shingare, Director of the Directorate Medical Education and Research (DMER), said, “The Law and Judiciary department had raised certain questions on the provisions of the law. The cabinet will decide upon the questions and give its final approval. Once the cabinet chaired by the Chief Minister clears the draft, it will be placed before the legislature in the winter session. The draft will be likely to be placed before the cabinet in the coming week.”
While speaking to My Medical Mantra, Dr Jayesh Lele, Member of the Indian Medical Association, said, “Till the time the government introduces the law, we can’t comment on it. But, before implementing the law, the government must look into the aspect that not every doctor indulged in the Cut Commission Practice. Those who are doing their work in a fair manner must not unnecessarily face the trouble.”
