New Delhi : Genuine concerns over the National Medical Commission Bill have been addressed and the legislation will be one of the biggest reforms, Union minister Harsh Vardhan said in Lok Sabha on Monday.

The bill would replace the 63-year-old Medical Council of India (MCI) with the commission to reform the medical sector.

It also seeks to repeal the Indian Medical Council Act 1956, stating that the council set up under it was corrupt. It has been alleged that the process by which the MCI regulated medical colleges was flawed.

Moving the bill for consideration in Lok Sabha, Vardhan said the bill seeks to put in place a new structure to tackle challenges in the medical education sector.

Emphasising that it is a pro-poor legislation, the Minister of Health and Family Welfare sought to assure that genuine concerns of the Indian Medical Association (IMA) have been addressed.
