Sir,

This has reference to views expressed in an editorial by B Gitanjali[1] and in a letter by Srivastava et al[2] in the IJP.

A similar dilemma as expressed by Srivastava et al[2] was faced by us. In this context, I have sent a letter to the Secretary, Medical Council of India (MCI), New Delhi wherein I have given details of equipment vis-a-vis the 'objectives' and 'skills' needed to be acquired at the end of the course as per the 'MCI regulations on graduate medical education, 1997'. Through my letter, I have tried to draw MCI's attention to this anomaly. I am yet to receive a response to my letter which was sent to the MCI in December 2002.

However, hopefully, the ball has been set rolling and if a concerted effort is made we may hope that the list may be corrected / modified.
