NAB orders on medical, dental colleges flouting admission ban


The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has directed its regional offices to get tough with the medical and dental academic institutions offering admission despite the Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) restriction.
Lately, the PMDC stopped 11 medical and dental colleges, including one of the government, from enrolling new students over lack of teaching and clinical facilities after surprise inspections.
Among them were the government-run Federal Medical and Dental College of Islamabad (MBBS), and privately-run Pakistan Red Crescent Medical and Dental College of Lahore (MBBS), Mohiuddin Islamic Medical College of Mirpur (MBBS), Abbottabad International Medical College of Abbottabad (MBBS), Independent Medical College of Faisalabad (MBBS), Women Medical College of Abbottabad (MBBS), Hashmat Medical and Dental College of Gujrat (MBBS), Al-Razi Medical College of Peshawar (MBBS), Sahiwal Medical College of Sahiwal (MBBS), Muhammad bin Qasim Medical and Dental College of Karachi (BDS), and Bhittai Medical and Dental College of Mirpur Khas (BDS).
The Peshawar High Court has already barred substandard medical colleges in its jurisdiction from giving admission to students in the ongoing academic calendar.
In a letter issued to the additional directors (staff) of the NAB, Punjab, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh and Rawalpindi after the chairman’s approval, Deputy Director (coordination) Sajid Ali at NAB headquarters said 11 medical and dental colleges, which had been banned from enrolling students over failure to fulfil mandatory requirements and comply with rules and regulations, continued to offer admissions for year 2013-2014.
According to him, public notices have appeared in the newspapers about the ban, while alert messages are flashed on the PMDC website but its violation continues, an act, which is tantamount to cheating the people at large and criminal breach of trust as defined in Section 9 of the National Accountability Ordinance, 1999.
The NAB headquarters asked its four regions to crack down on the said colleges to save the time and money of the parents or students.
Also, they’re directed to initiate inquiry into the matter, seize necessary record pertaining to admission notices, list of students admitted for year 2013-2014 for MBBS/BDS, and other relevant documents, and affix the public awareness notices about admission ban on the main gates of the said colleges with a warning against removing them ‘until NAB allows.’ The NAB headquarters asked the said regional offices to send in compliance reports by February 4 for the perusal of the chairman.The news.
