Indore: The Medical Council of India in order to regulate regular attendance at MGM Medical College has decided to take biometric impressions of the faculty and link it to its aadhaar card details.
“A team of experts outsourced by MCI will visit the college next week for taking biometric thumb impression of the faculty members and linking it with their Aadhaar card details,” said Vice Dean Dr Sanjay Dixit.
13 biometric thumb impression machines have already been installed in the various buildings of the college and the hospitals associated with it.
