Member Secretary



Hello everybody,

When I reviewed my earlier commitment, where I had promised to ensure transparent system of functioning of the Council and to create better employment opportunities, I found that during my two years tenure in RCI, my earlier months were utilized to understand in depth the functioning of the Council.  Couple of months I spent in clearing the pendency and backlogs, and after about one year, I was in a position to make the Council up to date in terms of pending references.  Next few months were used for upgrading and revamping the existing practices and systems of the Council that included online payment/receipt transactions, authorization to National Institutes to sanction CRE’s without financial assistance, re-allocation of works, digitization, e-tendering and many more. After it, I could get comfort zone to plan about the extended scope of the Council.  In this process I tried and got approved many new programmes and reviewed many drop-out programmes which are required now in the changed scenario.  This exercise also included the efforts to co-ordinate with US university, Indian Universities, National Institutes for good programmes including Doctor in Audiology from Salus University Pennsylvania, US.

            But now, when RPD Act-2016 has been enacted where the scope and responsibility of the Council have been multiplied many folds,  it has become greater challenge to meet-out the expectations of this Act I reiterate that this Council is committed to carry out all responsibilities entrusted to it with the support of our able officers and good guidance and helping attitude of our Chairperson.  But I may not fulfill all of the tasks assigned to the Council without the positive support of eminent experts, NGO’s and yours.

            With warm regards.
