Dr. A. Niswade, Dean of Nagpur Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) explained that the new regulation by MCI would bring the desired discipline in teachers. Some of the teachers do not come to college on time, and the new system will ensure that they use the biometric system and swipe their cards to mark their attendance on time. However, there is no limit on the total number of hours a teacher should be present in the college.

The government has implemented biometric attendance not in only in medical colleges but also various universities and degree colleges.

Recently, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana governments have also implemented biometric attendance in all the universities and polytechnic colleges and stated that students with less than 75% of attendance would not be allowed to take the examinations. The initiative taken by the government will mandate the students to attend the classes regularly. The move has also been taken to make teachers attend the classes on time.

On the other hand, most of the parents of medical aspirants in Maharashtra are also planning to write to the Directorate of Medical Education (DMER) requesting to start an ‘’additional batch’’ for the aspirants who did not secure seats in medical colleges.

Accountability of Teachers in Medical Colleges India, With Biometry A good move by Medical council of India to tame the teachers in particular senior professors, and ever green colored retired teachers from Medical colleges, Many complaints were lodged by junior teaching staff and paramedical people, after a wide discussion MCI lashes the whip to track the erring teachers and Doctors, and the software made to account the matters, and MCI and state bodies / universities can act in times of issues, legal issues and student litigations as it is found In government colleges many clinical professors disappear from the workplace and encourage many mushrooming hospitals around, leaving even the complicated cases to resident doctors, It Was reported independently most teaching hospitals are manned by very inexperienced doctors after 2.0pm and practically few Doctors are available in all the weekend's most incidents of attacks happen when the very juniors are handling the emergencies, putting everyone at risk and loss of property by vandalism and junior doctors are facing the brunt of attacks, Soon an end to Inspector Raj to amass wealth from Private managements, All types of deficiencies will bar the colleges from further progress, Soon a law to tame the deemed universities and private universities with self governance
