FIA to scrutinize NOCs of Medical Colleges


The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) will start probing the issuance of approvals to medical colleges lacking requisite facilities and faculty.

The Federal Investigation Agency has been directed after the Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan took notice of media reports that some medical colleges have been issued NOCs despite the fact that they lacked the required facilities to run MBBS classes, and the FIA has been directed to probe the case.

The Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PMDC) is the authority to issue the permission for setting up a medical or dental college after taking into account that the applicant institute meets the required criteria. A comprehensive inspection protocols are followed before the permission is granted.

However, there are a number of colleges who do not meet the criteria but haven managed to get the permission using their influence and financial muscles.

The FIA has been tasked to ascertain if this is the result of negligence of PM&DC or there was some connivance of its officials in this illegality or both.

A probe has also been initiated against the illegal sale and transplantation of human organs by organised gangs in connivance with some doctors.

The FIA would report both the cases to the interior ministry within 15 days.

  1. I don’t know if it’s just me or if everybody else experiencing issues
    with your site. It looks like some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let
    me know if this is happening to them as well?
    This could be a issue with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Many thanks
