Golaghat �cardiologist� under Govt scanner

By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, May 12 - The Chief Minister�s Office has asked the Commissioner and Secretary, Health and Family Welfare Department, Assam, to look into the allegations against Dr Debraj Saha of Golaghat, who has been accused of practising as a cardiologist without having the requisite qualifications.

This comes in the wake of complaints filed by RTI activist Mustaque Ali who alleged, with the help of supporting documents, that the doctor was practising as a cardiologist on the basis of a postgraduate diploma in clinical cardiology awarded by the IGNOU � something not recognised by the IMC Act 1956.

Meanwhile, the Assam Council of Medical Registration has issued a show-cause notice to Dr Debraj Saha on the basis of the complaint made by the RTI activist.

Replies to the RTI activist�s queries by the Medical Council of India stated that diploma in clinical cardiology awarded by the IGNOU was not recognised/permitted under the IMC Act 1956.

Ali has further alleged that there are a number of such doctors who are practising without possessing the requisite professional qualifications.
