Reach Medical College at sharp 9 am: New rule to faculty

Mysuru: The Medical Council of India(MCI), has issued a circular to medical colleges and hospitals to install biometric machines to monitor attendance of doctors and faculty on a regular basis. This has been done in an effort to add severity to workplace punctuality rules and  rule out the possibility of ghost faculty  in all dental and medical colleges in the country.

The institutions are to pay a certain fee for the SIM cards being supplied to them

 Superintendent,  K.R. Hospital, Chandrashekar, revealed that the apex body planned to maintain a faculty database on the number of classes taken  and  time spent by faculty in the classrooms.

The MCI also wants to keep a track of doctors to ensure that patients visiting hospitals attached to colleges do not face difficulty, the superintendent added.

He also spoke of ghost faculty being organized on a temporary basis to show faculty strength, during MCI inspections as reported by the Hindu.

The monitoring of attendance is meant to tackle the problem of classes not being held or completed in time, said the Medical Superintendent.

Meanwhile, K.R. Hospital has issued a circular to its doctors and faculty members asking them to punch in at 9 a.m.daily. In case of failure to do so, they would be marked absent.

    Unless uniform pay scales and service conditions including gazetted holidays and other leaves related matters are addressed, the rule of tracking a faculty through Online Faculty Attendance Monitoring System (OFAMOS) is a violation of the Principle of Natural Justice with regards to individual rights of a faculty under Article 14 of the Indian Constitution, which guarantees EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK, and will invite legal processes against concerned offices and Officials.
