Jharkhand MBBS Admission: Disabled candidates face 2nd medical examination | Tech US News



Dhanbad, November 7: Now disabled candidates for MBBS reserved seats in the state will have to face 2n.d medical examination in medical colleges before admission in Jharkhand medical colleges.

Aggrieved by complaints from medical college authorities regarding the fake disability certificate in the first phase of admissions that ended on November 4, the medical education department of the state health ministry has directed the principals of five medical colleges to conduct the 2nd.n.d medical examination of candidates before their admission to the reserved seat for the disabled in the current academic session.

Dr SK Singh, director of medical education, state health department, has issued a notice to principals and admissions officers to get second opinion from specialists on the certificate of disabled candidates before admitting them to reserved seats.

National Medical Commission (NMC) has reserved 5% MBBS seats for handicapped (deaf, blind) candidates. Although the NMC has already designated 16 hospitals across the country to screen handicapped candidates, in Jharkhand they only admit on the basis of a civil surgeon’s certificate.

“Additional Chief Secretary (ACS) Health has taken serious note of the complaints of college principals regarding dubious certificates submitted by handicapped students during the first counseling admission. He discussed this at the meeting and ordered that a second opinion from a specialist doctor be obtained on the certificate of disabled students before enrollment,” said the medical director.

Dr SK Singh who is also the Principal of Hazaribag Medical College. said that he refused to admit a student in a reserved place for disabled people who came with wrong certificates.

Shahid Nirmal Mahto Medical College Hospital (SNMMCH) Dhanbad also sent back two students due to suspicious certificates. Responsible for admission prof. (Dr.) Ganesh Kumar said that the civil surgeon certificates of the candidates were in the wrong format and he sent them back and asked them to bring the correct ones.

In 2021, the SNMMCH authorities refused to admit two students to the first and second counseling due to incorrect disability certificates.

Dr SK Singh said that though the notification was issued on November 5, the students who were admitted during the first counseling will have to take the 2nd as well.n.d medical examination by a specialist doctor.

“In this academic session (2022), the department of medical education has instructed the principals of colleges to set up committees of specialist doctors to conduct medical tests of students. From next year, the health ministry is considering setting up a department at the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) Ranchi to screen disabled students,” he added.
