The state health and family welfare department has passed a resolution to allow colleges run by the Gujarat Medical Education Research Society (GMERS) to conduct post-mor-tem examinations. These colleges are semi-government institutions. Currently, only the government hospitals and colleges can conduct post-mortem examinations in medico-legal cases.

The resolution says that only those doctors working in colleges operated by GMERS and having expertise in forensic medicine and carrying medico-legal certificate would be issued permission for post-mortem.
And these doctors would be given approval only after a thorough scrutiny of their educational qualifications and practical experience by a committee set up by the state health and family welfare department.
