MCI Asks IMA To implement URN For Doctors

IMA has over 2.15 lakh doctors as members through over 1,600 active local branches across the country.

The Medical Council of India has written to the country’s largest body of doctors to help digitise India’s registry of doctors through a unique registration number similar to AADHAAR as part of its ongoing e-governance initiative. The move is expected to help doctors practice in different States without seeking different licences across borders and also create a comprehensive database of specialists in different areas of medicine here.

IMA is expected to inform doctors that they are required to apply for a UPRN number under this current system and circulate documents to help them do so, according to the letter dated September 28, which ET has seen.

UPRN numbers are expected to be generated for approximately 10 lakh existing records in IMR, according to the letter.

IMA has over 2.15 lakh doctors as members through over 1,600 active local branches across the country.

MCI’s letter to IMA stated that “To successfully implement the new UPRN based IMR system, all the doctors in India, is to be informed about the new system. On implementation of the system, the existing registration numbers of the doctors shall be migrated to a standard system of UPRN. Doctors shall also apply online for additional qualification registration in IMR like PG, super specialty.”
