Can NRI doctors barred abroad work in India? IMA writes to MCI
At Delhi High Court, a bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice VK Rao, took a suo moto note to examine the issue whether Indian-origin doctors, barred from practicing by a foreign country, can practice in India?
Based on news reports that an Indian-origin doctor, who has been barred from practicing by a US court, is now treating patients in Delhi and Gurgaon, the court directed the member secretary of Delhi State Legal Services Authority, Sanjeev Jain, to verify the name and address of this doctor, carry out an immediate probe and file a report within four days; issued notice to the  MCI to file a report on the mechanism, statutory regime as well as rules and regulations in place to scrutinize and check such practices and also made Ministry of Health and Family Welfare a party. The next date of hearing was on May 15.
As per the US court, the doctor has been ordered "not practice medicine in any form within the United States or any other country"

IMA supports insurance for death due to mosquito bite 
Recommends an all-encompassing effort from the community as a whole to address this issue

New Delhi, 15 May 2017: According to the South Delhi Municipal Corporation, 79 cases of chikungunya and 24 cases of dengue have been reported in Delhi just three months since 1 January 2017. Of these, 11 patients acquired the infection from neighboring states. It is a fact that we have collectively failed last year in controlling the mosquito menace and consequently, the mosquito menace is back this year.
There is a need to over report and act in time and not only when the cases start appearing. Failure to act can be attributed collectively to Municipal Corporation, Delhi Government, Central Government, LG office, Medical Associations, CSR departments, Media, NGOs, and the private sector. It is time that last year's failure is converted into success this year.
