The Apex Court has ruled that the power to grant recognition to medical colleges rests with the government and the MCI can only make recommendationsSubmitted on 07/05/2012 - 08:46:48 AM
New Delhi: The Supreme Court has said that Medical Council of India (MCI) was not empowered to grant recognition to medical colleges and this power rested with the Union government,
A bench headed by Justice Altamas Kabir said that the role of the MCI in grant of recognition to a medical college or institution is recommendatory.
The bench further added that there was no provision in the MCI Act relating to grant of sanction.
Setting aside the Delhi High Court’s order, the Apex court observed, "In our view, the position is quite clear that in terms of the scheme of the MCI Act and the regulations framed by the Council, it is the Central government which is empowered to grant recognition to a medical college or institution on the recommendation made by the MCI."
Delhi High Court has observed that permission granted by the Council to run a medical college amounts to recognition. But the apex court turned down this observation saying, "No provision is available under the Act relating to grant of recognition of a medical college/institution, as Section 10A speaks only of permission and not recognition.”The bench added that it was unable to agree with the reasoning of either the learned single judge or the division bench of the High Court in arriving at the finding that once permission had been granted under Section 10A of the Act, it would amount to grant of recognition and, thereafter, the medical college/ institution, was free to enhance the number of seats without the permission either of the Council or the Central Government.
