The National General Secretary of YSR Congress Party V Vijaya Sai Reddy has sought action against the GITAM Deemed to be University alleging the institute management got crucial permissions submitting fake documents. In a letter to Suresh Chandra Sharma, chairman of the National Medical Commission, Reddy said the institution has violated various rules and regulations and sought action under Sec 19 of the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956. GITAM, Deemed to be University, has started a medical college GITAM Institute of Medical Sciences and Research at Yendada village in Visakhapatnam with the permission from erstwhile Medical Council of India.
Mr. Reddy alleged that there are many irregularities and violations of NMC (erstwhile MCI) regulations in the functioning of GIMSR and complaints are being received that GIMSR has obtained recognition based on illegal, fabricated documents and without valid legal sale deed of land and free from encumbrance.
The question arises whether the erstwhile MCI has verified the genuineness of the land documents at the time of giving permission to start the institution,” he highlighted. According to MCI norms, no institution shall be granted recognition under the regulations of the MCI unless it is in possession of required land on the date of application and the land must be free from all encumbrances, he contended.
Stating further, he said that MCI did not give permission to GIMSR for making admission into MBBS courses for the academic year 2017-18 for not having requisite infrastructure i.e., laboratories and adequate staff. Subsequently, on the submission of false and fabricated documents, the MCI has restored permission to admit the students basing on the assurance. Thus, the institution did not fulfill the assurances given and the irregularities and deficiencies remained unchanged’. Many of the faculty continue to work on a part-time basis and many others were shown only on record to satisfy the norms,” he alleged
