The NMC has stressed the significance of Aadhaar-enabled biometric attendance system (AEBAS) for medical college faculty before inspection to eliminate phantom faculty.

National Medical Commission (NMC) constantly asks medical colleges to incorporate AEBAS. The Commission’s Medical Assessment and Rating Board standards standardize the application process for new medical colleges, adding seats to existing ones, and dealing with ghost faculty.

The apex medical education regulatory organization stated the new standards will start next academic year.

“The daily AEBAS of the required staff (faculty, residents and supporting staff), preferably along with face-linked recognition shall be made available to the NMC as well as on the medical college website in the form of daily attendance dashboard,” the rules read.

The NMC stated in a notice accompanying the recommendations that the Post Graduate Medical Education Board has decided to create a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) to evaluate the examination process immediately.

Medical colleges and institutes will conduct exams according to PGMER guidelines and record the exam process and all relevant data about the examiners, exam process, cases kept for the exam, student theses, etc.

The announcement stated that colleges can administer exams on time without physical or online inspection.

After the exam, medical colleges and institutes would be physically assessed for infrastructure, clinical material, investigative material, and other facilities and examination data, it stated.
