Registration to the Medical Council is necessary before practicing the Noble profession almost throughout the world. In India, a medical graduate has to register either with State medical council or Medical council of India before starting practice. On registration, a number is issued to the registered doctor by the respective council which also provides certain rights & duties to the doctor.

As per Indian Medical Council Act 2002, a doctor shall mention his registration number on all the documents he/she issues viz prescription paper, receipts, bills, Medical certificates etc. Also, as per the Drugs Act 1945, it is required by anyone to write the registration number who is prescribing the drugs. Presently, it is seen that many doctors are unaware of these regulations.

The present study was done in view of writing Registration number by the doctors taking the advantage of Right to Information Act, 2005.
