Can your license to practice be revoked if you are convicted of a fraud by the criminal court?


Dr KK Aggarwal and Ms Ira Gupta    11 June 2018

Yes. Here is one MCI order F.No. 124/2011:

The MCI Ethics Committee considered the complaint against Dr. SCJ filed by Supdt. of Police, CBI, Jabalpur, who forwarded an order of CBI Court dated 22.10.2010 whereby SCJ had been convicted for taking bribe and punished for 6 months of rigorous imprisonment along with fine of Rs. 5000/-.

The Ethics Committee feels that strict action should be taken against the Doctor who has been caught by CBI and convicted by a Court of Law and we deem it appropriate to suspend the license of SCJ. We also think a show cause notice be issued to SCJ and ……………….a letter should be communicated to State Medical Council informing that the license of SCJ has been suspended during the pendency of the complaint before MCI…” (MCI order MCI-211(2)/2011-Ethics/ 10th May, 2011)
