    1. Registrar ship during DM should be counted as teaching experience for MBBB as asstt prof of medicine. Means it should counted for eligibility for assoc prof in Medicine.
    2. Some weightage should be given case reports published. May be four case reports as one original article. It will encourage paper writing.
    3. DNB teachers teaching experience should be condoned as 15 yrs and 10 thesis prof, 10 yrs 10 thesis as asso and 5 yrs and 5 thesis as asst prof. If they are having MD or MS. Also some exceptional academics should be considered for asso prof,as paper, dnb teacher, dnb examiner , question bank contribution etc. For mbbs and md assoc teacher after retirement.
