Instructions for students who are not attending lectures for a long time on medical grounds.

3. Medical Certificates

The following circumstances require students to submit Medical Certificates:

a) Students registering for examinations who do not have 80% attendance for their lectures.

b) Students who are ill and cannot sit for examinations.

The Medical centre issues medical certificates to very sick students who are unable at that time to attend lectures or sit for examinations after an examination by one of our Doctors. Students should request at the time of presentation whether they need a Medical certificate or not. Medical certificates will not be issued for previous encounters with our Doctors.

Students who are not able to come to Medical centre can present themselves to a Government Medical Officer ( A Doctor with MBBS degree and working at a Government institution) or a Medical Consultant ( A Doctor having MBBS and other post graduate qualifications making him a specialist in his chosen field) and get a Medical Certificate. These certificates have to be produced at the Medical centre for approval before submitting to the relevant departments. Private Ayurvedic Medical Certificates have to be submitted to Ayurvedic Medical Council for approval.  Government Ayurvedic certificates can be directly submitted to respective departments. Students who are admitted to a hospital can provide a Medical certificate from the respective hospitals.

All other Medical certificates which do not belong to above categories shall be rejected.

4. The Ambulance is available at all times to take critically ill patients and emergencies to hospital. This service is coordinated by the Medical centre during 8:00 a.m-4:00 p.m. on weekdays.
