PMDC stops MBBS evening shift
Larkana: The Pakistan Medical and Dental Council
(PMDC) has warned vice chancellor and registrar of the Shaheed Benazir
Bhutto Medical University and principal of the Chandka Medical College
not to admit or advertise for admission students in evening shift unless
the institutions were allowed by the council.
The council said that no medical or dental institution was allowed to
launch evening shift. But the CMC has already conducted entry test for
admission to the evening shift on 100 seats.
The council said that MBBS evening course at CMC was not recognised
and was in violation of PMDC Ordinance 1962 and Medical and Dental
Amendment Act 2012.
A letter issued on May 14 by Dr Shaista Fisal, acting registrar of
PMDC categorically directed the VC, registrar of SBBMU, principal of
CMC, principal of Bibi Assefa Dental College, Larkana, director of
admissions at SBBMU and secretary of health not to admit or advertise
for admission students for evening shift unless the institution
concerned was allowed to do so by the council.
The letter said the evening shift was not covered under relevant laws
and "shall have penal consequences as ordered by the honourable Supreme
Court of Pakistan and violations of PMDC Ordinance 1962 and Medical and
Dental Council (Amendment) Act, 2012 and liable to action under section
22A and 22B of Medical and Dental Council (Amendment) Act, 2012."
She asked for a response within a week after the letter's issuance to
avoid action under rule No.20 of Medical and Dental Institutions
(recognition, eligibility, criteria for enhancement in annual admissions
and accreditation standards) regulations, 2012.
CMC principal Prof Assadullah Mahar said that they were preparing a
reply to the PMDC letter and also to another notice (on similar subject)
the college had received from the human rights wing of the Supreme
Court of Pakistan. The reply would be submitted to the apex court by
June 1, he said.
Meanwhile, the PMDC has posted another 'public notice' on its website
titled "Notice to the administration of SBBMU". It says: "The MBBS
evening course at CMC is not recognised and is in violation of PMDC
Ordinance 1962 and Medical and Dental Amendment Act 2012. So you are
strictly warned not to advertise for admission/admit MBBS/BDS graduate
in the above mentioned programme. Any violation of the notice shall
result in penal action under section 22 A and 22 B Medical and Dental
Act, 2012 and under the decision of Supreme Court of Pakistan PLD.2007
The notice warns students' parents "you are advised in your own
interest to refrain from taking admission in the above programme."
The registrar of SBBMU invited through advertisement applications for
admission to MBBS evening course at CMC on 100 seats for the districts
of Larkana and Sukkur divisions. The university engaged National Testing
Services to hold the entry test on May 5 and was to announce its result
on May 22 but later withheld it without giving any reasons, much to the
annoyance of students who had appeared in the test. Dawn
