Private sector employees may not have to bother much to get medical certificates from doctors to get their leaves sanctioned from their bosses, because here too bare footed doctors (quacks) have taken lead from the registered medical practitioners. One such case has come to light following the complaint of Ram Kishan Yadav against a 'Registered Medical Practitioner' (in official term quack) practising in Dhoomanganj area. The chief medical officer has set up an inquiry against the RMP doctor.

According to the complaint, RMP Dr RP Pandey had issued a number of medical certificates without holding a valid medical degree. One such certificate was also recently issued to some Dileep Kumar, the copy of which is available with the district health department. Yadav had also complained that Dr RP Pandey was running clinic in Dhoomanganj market and was openly providing treatment to the patients.

"After checking the records it was found that there was no registration of Dr RP Pandey at the CMO office. Neither had we received any application from him for the registration. Moreover RMP is not recognised degree for practising medicine," said inquiry officer Dr VK Mishra.

Dr Mishra said the inquiry was set up on the complaints of Ram Kishan Yadav, a local resident. Dr RP Pandey had issued a medical certificate which was not valid. All these factors would be considered while conducting the inquiry. "We have also received more such complaints against unregistered medical practitioners," he added.
