The project aims at maintaining a database of faculty that contains details including how many classes they take and the time spent on taking classes.

MCI sub-committee studied the project, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) system, which was started and dropped in 2009 during the last government. All medical colleges, including private ones, have been informed about the project.

The project was conceptualized to address complaints of 'ghost faculty' who were arranged by medical colleges during scheduled inspections by MCI teams. "We received such complaints from several inspectors," a senior member of the MCI executive committee said.

Sources said the project was dropped in 2009 after being vetted by the then board of governors of MCI because it was considered too expensive and 'not very feasible'.

"This will also address the issue of classes not being actually held or being finished earlier than the stipulated time. Now, the time a teacher spends in taking a class will be monitored. So another complaint we face about syllabus not being completed despite classes being taken throughout the year will be addressed," the senior member explained.
