These Notices were issued for Renewal of registrations by RMPS, before 31st July 2016.  This was done to elicit early response, and to cover all the Districts within this period for Renewal.

Provided that the name so removed may be re-entered in the register on payment of the renewal fee in such manner and subject to such conditions, as may be prescribed by rules.


As per Amendment of KMR Act in 2003, Section 19 – In Section 19 of the principal Act:-


(1)    in sub-section (1), for the words “on or before the thirty first day of December of every year a renewal fee of two rupees” the words “a prescribed fee on or before such date as may be prescribed” shall be substituted.  Prescribed fee by Council is Rs.1,000/- and prescribed date is 31st December every five years.


The renewal of registration will be done at K.M.C. office, Vasantnagar, on first floor. Registered Medical Practitioners are advised to renew their registration without penalty before 31st December 2016.


RMPS who have already done updation of data have fulfilled requirement under KMR Rule NO 44 – “Change of Address - Every registered practitioner shall immediately give notice to the Registrar of any change of name or change of permanent address for being entered in the Register. Whenever there is a request for entering a change of name, documentary evidence in support of the change of name being recorded shall also be furnished to the Registrar”.
