Bangalore: Most private medical colleges bring fake patients to hospitals and ‘admit’ them to present before the committee sent by the Medical Council of India (MCI) for annual inspection, according to the state medical education minister S A Ramadas.

“The colleges pay Rs 500 per person to act as a patient and produce them before the committee. Sometimes two to three hospitals exchange the patients just to satisfy the MCI norms,” Ramadas has said.

According to the minister, “Not just the patients, the (private medical) colleges even exchange teaching and non-teaching staff.” [Source]
