The government proposes to establish an umbrella body to oversee medical education in the country and to prevent scams of the kind that have hit the Medical Council of India (MCI), Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said. Once the National Council for Human Resources in Health "comes into being, it will take care of everything", Azad said while responding to a calling attention motion in the Rajya Sabha on irregularities in the functioning of the MCI in giving approval to medical colleges.
