The Medical Assessment and Rating Board (MARB) of the National Medical Commission (NMC) has recently uncovered a case of forgery involving a letter issued to GSL Medical College in Rajahmundry. The forged letter falsely claimed an increase in seats for MD-Radio Diagnosis from 10 to 24 for the academic year 2023-24. MARB would like to clarify that no such application was received from GSL Medical College for the mentioned seat increase, and consequently, no communication regarding this matter was dispatched to the college by MARB.
It is imperative to note that the letter in question, which purported to grant permission for the seat increase, is entirely forged and fake. The Member/President of MARB did not issue this letter. As such, it cannot be considered as valid permission from the Medical Assessment and Rating Board of the National Medical Commission.
MARB, NMC, wishes to bring these facts to the attention of all concerned parties and the general public. It is crucial for everyone to be aware of this fraudulent activity and to refrain from taking any action based on the counterfeit letter. This incident serves as a reminder of the importance of verifying official communications and ensuring their authenticity, especially in matters as critical as medical education and seat allocation.
MARB, NMC, is actively investigating the source of this forged letter to identify those responsible for this deceptive act. Further updates on this matter will be provided as the investigation unfolds.
In the meantime, all educational institutions, students, and stakeholders in the field of medical education are urged to exercise caution and vigilance to prevent any potential miscommunication or misrepresentation related to seat allocations and educational programs.
