Dr. KV Singh OSD to CM Haryana has been nominated as member of prestigious Medical Council of India (MCI).

Dr. KV Singh did his MBBS degree from Sardar Patel Medical College Bikaner, Rajasthan in 1972 and joined as Medical Officer in Haryana Government in 1974. He remained in the service as Medical Officer upto 1994. He worked as OSD to Chief Minister Haryana in the year 1987-88 and OSD to Deputy Prime Minister of India from 1988 to 1989.
At present, he is working as OSD to Chief Minister Haryana, Mr. Bhupinder Singh Hooda since March, 2005.

The Medical Council of India was established in 1934 under the Indian Medical Council Act, 1933, now repealed, with the main function of establishing uniform standards of higher qualifications in medicine and recognition of medical qualifications in India and abroad. The number of medical colleges had increased steadily during the years after Independence. It was felt that the provisions of Indian Medical Council Act were not adequate to meet with the challenges posed by the very fast development and the progress of medical education in the country. As a result, in 1956, the old Act was repealed and a new one was enacted. This was further modified in 1964, 1993 and 2001. Some of the objectives of the Council are: Maintenance of uniform standards of medical education, both undergraduate and postgraduate.
Recommendation for recognition/de-recognition of medical qualifications of medical institutions of India or foreign countries.
Permanent registration/provisional registration of doctors with recognised medical qualifications, Reciprocity with foreign countries in the matter of mutual recognition of medical qualifications.
