MGM Medical College, Dean to revoke deputation orders
Indore: The Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College Dean, Dr Sharad Thora on facing flak for having transferred 9 teachers to Khandwa Medical College, has decided to revoke the order of deputation.
The transferred 9 have raised voices of protest as their consent was not taken before sending them on deputation to Khandwa medical College. They had been sent by the Dean to ensure that the headcount was as per MCI norms and that recognition to the institution was granted.
With the Council inspection over, Dean, Thora is planning to revoke the deputation order in consultation with his seniors. “As the inspection has been completed, we will call back the faculty members to Indore,” Dr Thora told FPJ.
Meanwhile, the nine faculties on deputation have returned to Indore having taken leave and are awaiting the dean’s orders of revocation. They fear that they might be transferred to Khandwa Medical College permanently.
