‘Medical colleges do not respond to ragging complaints’; NMC warns of action
The NMC has asked medical colleges to send the compliance report by June 30 and respond to ragging complaints received at nmc.org.in, on time.
NEW DELHI: One and a half years after the NMC framed the anti-ragging regulations in 2021, it was found that the medical colleges have not yet sent a compliance report. The National Medical Commission (NMC) has asked all medical colleges to send the compliance report on anti-ragging measures, incidents of ragging by June 30.
The commission directed colleges to comply with the ‘Prevention and Prohibition of Ragging in Medical Colleges and Institutions, regulations 2021’. The letter addressed to all colleges was issued after the NMC observed that some colleges did not respond to the complaints forwarded to them. “The report for the period ending March 31 should include all the complaints received after the UG, PG admission of 2021 and 2022 batch,” it said.
There is a designated module/ portal on the NMC official website, nmc.org.in, for lodging complaints by the medical students.
The NMC used to forward the complaints received to the respective college. However, it was noted that the medical colleges did not respond to the complaints in time. Therefore, all colleges are requested to promptly attend the complaints forwarded to them and send compliance reports immediately.
It further warned the medical colleges that “serious” action will be taken if not responded to complaints on time.
As per the regulations, medical students and their guardians will have to mandatorily submit an undertaking at the time of admission assuring that they will not involve in ragging.
