Supreme Court raps Medical Council of India and dental body for misleading it

Supreme Court  accused the Medical Council of India (MCI) and the Dental Council of India (DCI) of regularly making false statements and misleading it using their lawyers in college recognition and student admission matters and threatened a CBI probe.

A bench headed by MY Eqbal said that  judicial notice has been taken by us of the fact that the aforesaid Council/authorities are not complying with the orders of this court as also the high court’s ,after hearing many similar matters involving the issue of grant of renewal or permission where the Medical Council of India, the Dental Council of India and the Veterinary Council of India are one of the parties . He also rebuked the Dental Council of India’s lawyer for giving an assurance to the court that it would permit a college in Tamil Nadu to admit students for the ensuing 2015-16 year while the Council, acting in contrast told the college, despite it rectifying all deficiencies, that it will only allow admission of students for 2016-2017 session.
