A week after the state government dissolved the Maharashtra Medical Council (MMC), which regulated ethical practices of about 75,000 doctors across the state, the Bombay High Court has asked the state government to let the council management hold elections "without interference".
 
The council was dissolved over alleged irregularities on August 30, following a report by the state-appointed inquiry panel probing the allegations, including financial mismanagement while renovating the MMC's Chinchpokhli office, grant of concessions under a licence renewal scheme, and holding of an awards function in Nagpur in April.
