After the two doctors attached to the Nagpur and Yavatmal Colleges, were found working privately. Now, the DMER has taken a note of it. According to an official from DMER, “Three doctors from Yavatmal’s Vasantrao Naik government medical college were practising privately. We have written a letter to MMC on November 24, regarding the revoking of the doctor’s license.”

Dr Pravin Shingare, director, DMER said, “We have written a letter regarding the doctors who work in the government medical college but also practise privately. Since past few months, 2 matters have come to light.”

Doctors working with government medical colleges, draw salaries from the government and work in private hospitals. Now, these doctors will be under the scrutiny of government.

Speaking to My Medical Mantra, Dr TP Lahane, Joint Director, DMER said, “Even though, the government has banned doctors of government college  from practising  privately. Some doctors run their independent clinic. Due to which, the patients coming in the government hospitals are ignored. Owing to which, the DMER has written a letter to MMC to cancel the license of the doctors who work in the government medical college and also practise privately.”
