AHMEDABAD: In 2001, Dashrath Kela, 38, started his career as a doctor with a monthly salary of Rs 25,000. Nine years later, he is a shop assistant at his cousin's shoe store in Maninagar, earning Rs 15,000 a month.


Kela is an MBBS from Karachi University. He fled to Ahmedabad in 2006 fearing for the safety of his family. He can't practice medicine here until he gets a certificate from the Medical Council of India (MCI). There are around 200 such Pakistani doctors in Gujarat - mostly from Sindh - who have the skill to heal but their hands are tied by red tape and uncertainty on citizenship.


Without the MCI's permission to practice, these doctors often work in pharmacies or even mobile repair shops - all for a pittance. Some also work the graveyard shift in hospitals offering their services as "charity" because they can't be hired legally.


Most of the Pakistani doctors fled to Gujarat for safety. They say kidnapping of girls from the Hindu community settled there, as well as extortion by anti-social elements, was common place. A large Sindhi population in Ahmedabad made the relocation that much easier.


"In Pakistan, patients used to treat us like gods. Here we are forced to beg for jobs to stay alive," says Dr Jayram Lohana, 46, who used to earn Rs 1 lakh a month in Sindh before he came to India in 2012. In Ahmedabad, he works at his cousin's mobile store right next to the airport. "We escaped terrorists and found safety here, but nobody is willing to help us put our lives back on track," he says.

Lohana now offers 'sewa' in a charitable hospital for Rs 20,000 a month. He had applied for the job of a medical officer in rural areas and his application was forwarded by the state government to MCI, which declined to certify him as he is not an Indian citizen.


"A foreign-educated doctor has to obtain Indian citizenship and clear the mandatory screening test to practice in India," says MCI chairman Dr Jayshree Mehta. Very few of these doctors have Indian citizenship, much as they would like to get it. They stay on long-term visas, renewable every year, which prohibit them from taking jobs.


As per the rules, Pakistanis can apply for Indian citizenship after staying here for seven years. The process takes another two to three years and then one encounters the red tape at MCI. Dr Girdharilal Sinchani, 42, knows it all too well. He did his MBBS from Karachi in 1997 and came to India in 2001. He got citizenship in February 2014 but has been waiting for MCI approval for the past 14 months. "We came here hoping for a better life, but while there is safety, we can't get jobs or buy property to live or do business."

Dow was a college and affiliated with KU. MBBS degree was issued
by KU. I think Dow is a university now so it can issue degrees.

Many medical colleges were affiliated with Karachi University such as Dow, Sindh and Karachi Medical and Dental Colleges until few years back. I think some are still affiliated with Karachi University.

These doctors are shameless characters. They received education at highly subsidized rates in Pakistani government medical colleges. When it came to return the favor, they migrated to India.

Not all the hindus are like them. Most of them are loyal to Pakistan. I personally know many hindus, specially in Big4 audit firms, who have completed their CA from Pakistani institute and are now earning more than 200,000 per month. They feel secure in Pakistan, they cheer for Pakistan during cricket matches and they are satisfied with the equal treatment. They themselves say that the hindus who have migrated to India are those who were extremely greedy and when they saw better salaries in India compared to Pakistan, they didn't give migration a second thought. Now they are regretting their decision but can't speak publicly their future will become completely dark in India after that.

Re: Pakistani doctor is forced to sells shoes in India

This news is blown out of proportion. Pakistan's medical degree is not confirmed to practice medicine unless they appear and pass the certification exam abroad. To name a few, USA, Canada, UK etc. Most of the doctors migrated abroad failed the test and are doing some other jobs. Lady doctors are either housewives or doing some petty jobs. And this dillema for Pakistani doctors is not new, it is very very old. The only substance to debate in this thread, is the education standard in Pakistan so low that they cannot clear the certification exam abroad?

After the brutal wave of terrorism in Pakistan most of non-Muslims migrated from Pakistan. Zoarastrians and Hindus mostly migrated to India. Well off people from these two religions migrated to Canada, USA, UK, Australia etc. Hand to mouth migrated to India. If we have to discuss this situation, we should first discuss our education system

Moreover, they haven't seen India yet. India is now being considered as world's rape capital.

Colleges that were affiliated with good universities like Karachi Uni, provide excellent education. I haven't seen a single doctor in my circle, who has not passed enabling examinations required for registration in foreign countries in first attempt. And it's not only Pakistan, when doctors migrate to any developed country from developing world, they have to pass certain examinations to register as medical practitioner. And I don't see any harm in this. Maybe you are talking about graduates from private medical universities where a below average student can get a medical degree if he/ she has money. Every country has such universities and they can't even be considered by their own countries employers.

First of all their is no MBBS offered by Karachi University, and second why are we worried about those who left Pakistan because they felt unsafe here in Pakistan and decided to go to INDIA, now they sell shoes, or clean toilets it shouldn't be our concern or news.
