Migrant Pakistani Hindu doctors seeks regularisation of MCI registration to permanent

Subject:  Regularisation of MCI registration to permanent one from temporary for migrant pak Hindu doctors, who have gor Indian citizenship. . 

That due to the disturbed political conditions for Hindus in Pakistan, many families have migrated for permanent settlement in India.

Amongst these, many qualified professionals like Doctors , Engineers, Academicians, Chartered Accountants ,Lawyers, pharmacists , Management graduates & other professionals have migrated to India due to persecution , religious intolerance & unsafe conditions for family residence.

That these professionals were well settled &earning  handsome package. They were well placed in their respective organisations or some even in Govt. jobs. They have to quit their career mid way& forced to migrate to India for saving their religion & families. Apart from male professionals, many hindu women doctors also migrated.

That Sir, these Hindu professionals , majority doctors from Pakistan are well qualified doctors & are registered with Pakistan Medical & Dental Council Islamabad. They all have passed the MBBS from recognized & well known medical colleges. These doctors had been practicing   in Pakistan for 10-20 years. That these doctors hold MBBS degrees, are recognized by Medical Council of India and included in schedule Three part II of IMC Act,1956

That migrant doctors had also worked and served in India as qualified Doctors for 8-10 years after getting  temporary registration of MCI , during Long Term Visa period of stay in India . These migrant Hindu Doctors are not fresh Medical graduates.

That in past migrant doctors has been granted permanent registration of Medical Council of India, once they get Indian Citizenship.

That as per PMO advice & Union cabinet decision MHA Govt. of India issued notification F.No.25022/50/2015-F.1 dt.7th Sep.,2016 for relaxation of residential conditions for Hindu Migrants rehabilitation in India.

The migrant doctors who have got Indian  citizenship recently, face problem of registration. When they were foreigners, they get temporary registration to work in India .But when they get Indian Citizenship, they can notpractice , until they pass screening  test, which is mandatory for fresh graduates. 

That PERMANENT MCI Registration will help these doctors to earn their livelihood & feed their families on one hand & serving the patients in society on other hand. That way they will not become burden on Govt. but contribute to development of society.

We request    Ministry of Health & Family Welfare Govt. of India officials to REGULARISE to permanent  MCI registration from temporary for  migrant hindu doctors , who have got Indian citizenship. These migrant doctors should be exempted from  screening test, considering their registration &  long professional experience in Pakistan & India.

This rehabilitation of migrant Doctors will help them integrate into mainstream society & serve the country.
