 Ketan Desaiís Medical License Revoked
The former president of Medical Council of India (MCI) will not be able to practice as a doctor after the Board of Governors of the MCI decided to suspend his license.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had arrested Desai earlier this year after he was found to be accepting a bribe of Rs 2 crore for granting recognition for a medical college in Punjab.

The Board of Governors acted on the recommendation of its ethics committee and said that they had a prima facie case against Desai, adding that they have also asked the World Medical Association not to confirm Desai as its president.

"In view of the serious and grave allegations against you having prima facie merit, permission granted to you to practice medicine has been suspended during the pendency of the complaint", the press release said.

According to reports, the suspension came on the back of Desai successfully applying a petition with the CBI to travel to Canada in order to attend the annual meeting of the World Medical Association late this week.

Dr Ketan Desai did wrongs in giving permission to colleges on the basis of bribe . Desai however took the strong action againt pharmaceutical which lead to his exit .The New MCI panel working under the roof of evil pharmaceutical Nexus . They are allowing docotrs in taking bribe from pharmaceutical company . No response against those doctors wine dine with pharma babus even media reports . His story reveal us how it is difficult to go against the corrupt system .If Dr Desai had not taken any step towards evil pharma doc nexus he might enjoy as MCI chief till now . He is a victim of our corrupt system.
