Secretary’s Note

A review of last year looks at the ways in which we have fulfilled our purpose in all our areas of responsibility, and the way in which they will evolve in future as we implement our policies. We are determined that the Jharkhand State Medical Council will continue to meet the needs of the society and will merit and maintain the confidence of the public and the profession.

One of the major thrusts is the introduction of renewal of registration, which will require our registered practitioners to demonstrate that they remain up to date. We have succeeded in our endeavour of providing an equitable platform for the users and the providers of health care services.

Compliance of the law of the land : The Council took steps to disseminate information about the provisions of Jharkhand State Medical Council Act and extensively emphasized on it through print media, at medical professionals associations meetings, through correspondence with the Heads of medical institutes and hospitals. Awareness was created amongst the medical fraternity. The fraternity has reposed its faith in the Council by coming forward for registration in large numbers.

Initiative was taken by the Council by arranging for Field Camps at various medical colleges and institutes to facilitate registration of doctors with Jharkhand State Medical Council.

Better Communication

In order to achieve better connectivity with the registered practitioners and public the Council launched its website, ""


The Council through its fair and transparent functioning has not only established its reputation amongst the medical fraternity but also has won the confidence of the public, the investigating agencies and the courts of law.


The Council is leading a crusade against the self- proclaimed doctors, "Quacks", to free the State of Jharkhand from their menace. In this mission it has been coordinating with the Directorate of Health Services to bring these charlatans to book. We have issued more than one hundred show cause notices to quacks. Prosecution proceedings have been launched against quacks in the courts. We have been able to sensitize the judiciary and have evolved procedures to simplify the executive and judicial process to book these offenders. As a result many quacks have been arrested, some have been denied bail. A request has been made to the High Court of Jharkhand through the Jharkhand Govt. to appoint special magistrates for speedy trial against quacks. We propose to request for amending laws so that trial proceedings against quacks are done expeditiously.

We set the standards of professional practice by describing what is expected of doctors, in their day to day conduct &performance, by the profession and by society .To achieve this objective the Council formulated the Code Of Ethics for medical practitioners practicing/servicing in the NCT of Jharkhand .
