The health de­part­ment of Navi Mum­bai Mu­nic­i­pal Corporation (NMMC) has given no­tice to all private prac­ti­tion­ers run­ning op­er­at­ing in­de­pen­dent clin­ics and dis­pen­saries to regis­ter them­selves with the corporation.

All clin­ics or dis­pen­saries will be reg­is­tered un­der the Bom­bay Nurs­ing Home Reg­is­tra­tion Act1949.

The last date for reg­is­tra­tion is Septem­ber 30.

Of­fi­cials said that till now only the hos­pi­tals and nurs­ing homes were re­quired to be reg­is­tered but the rule has now been ex­tended to the private clin­ics and dis­pen­saries as well.

The no­tice was sent around a month ago and a time pe­riod of 90 days has been given to com­plete the reg­is­tra­tion process.

“The reg­is­tra­tion of all clin­ics and dis­pen­saries is nec­es­sary to pre­vent any bo­gus ac­tiv­i­ties by the med­i­cal prac­ti­tion­ers,” said Dr Ramesh Nikam, as­sis­tant health of­fi­cer (in-charge), health de­part­ment of NMMC.

To com­plete the pro­ce­dure, the clin­ics and dis­pen­saries need to sub­mit their aca­demic cer­tifi­cates and clinic de­tails which will be ver­i­fied by the mu­nic­i­pal corporation.

“Once we check and cross check the doc­u­ments, we will regis­ter them un­der the act and pro­vide them reg­is­tra­tion num­bers,” said the as­sis­tant health of­fi­cer.
