Dr. C.R. Srinivas

Dear Friends,

You asked me to navigate this ship on a set course for one long year.

Our team has worked on this task with enthusiasm.

The first MID-DERMACON was hosted at Hyderabad .The meeting has eased the financial commitment towards Central Council meeting.

MID- DERMACON, which will be executed by Special Interest Groups ( SIG) will provide opportunity for smaller cities to host national level

meeting. Its future directions will be planned by Special Operation Procedure (SOP) which will be in place soon.

IADVL has many state branches and if any one state branch faces problems and is not functioning as it should, then we should help find a

solution. A designer agreement has been arrived by mutual consent by the MP branch and hopefully the branch will grow stronger in the

days to come. Our team along with local team has worked hard to make this happen.

Therapeutic guidelines will be available soon and this project has involved many members to actively contribute to IADVL activity.

GSK Quiz has been decentralized and CITICON has been empowered at the state level.

You will soon receive a year planer. Use it well.

If you now ask me, "Srini, tell me one thing which has happened during this tenure and makes you most happy," my answer is, "the invitation

for projects by the ACADEMY for funding."

Dear friend, we have weathered few storms but have managed to stay on course and IADVL has a bright future.

Srinivas C.R.

President IADVL

President Elect - IADVL

Dr Suresh Talwar


Greetings from Lucknow !



IADVL is undergoing great transformation under our visionary president Dr CR Srinivas ,active secretary Dr PN Rao and enthusiastic

executive. Our secretary is already in control of all the activities of IADVL. He has worked laboriously to organize a very successful first

MIDDERMACON. The central council meeting organised alongwith was able to solve all the pending problems. The publication of

Undergraduate Text book of Dermatology is a real honour for IADVL .Initiation of activities in some of the IADVL projects like SIG groups,

SOP committee, Therapeutic Guidelines Committee, Dermatology Atlas ,E voting, IADVL directory is heartening . Many more schemes for

the benefit of members are in the offing. International conferences like SARAD meet and ICD being organised in India will further lift the

image of Indian dermatology

Lets keep the destiny away .Invoke the limitless thinking from within and conquer the limiting /destructive thought pattern. We all should

work with the aim of doing the best with what we have. This will greatly help the organization in its evolution.

IADVL News is a true mouth piece of IADVL so please go through it carefully and be updated. Member's involvement and suggestion are

must for healthy functioning of any organization, so do not hesitate and air your views on all available forums. You all are critical pieces in

the larger scheme of things. Your views will be given due consideration by our executive. Let us collectively see that IADVL grows to its full


Long live IADVL!

Immediate Past President


Dr. S.D.N. Guptha

Dear IADVLites,

It is my pleasure to write a message for the August Issue of IADVL News 2012.



The memories of recently concluded IADVL CC meet and the first ever MID DERMACON CME & Workshop are still fresh, I take this

opportunity to congratulate Dr. Rao, Dr. Murthy and Team AP IADVL for the successful organization of the maiden venture. SIG

Dermatosurgery also deserves special mention and appreciation for meticulous planning, co-ordination and execution of the CME &

Workshop. The smooth and immaculate conductance of the central council & special general body meet by our vibrant President Dr.

Srinivas is exemplary and puts forward a new path to follow.

It is indeed heartening to see the mix of seniors and juniors alike at such important meets, suggests the concern and love for our

organization. The unity and mutual respect are the corner stone for efficient working of any organization and I feel relaxed to witness the

same. I appreciate the systematic and tactical approach followed by Dr. Srinivas and the Vice-President in handling the MP issue. The

recently held symposium on “Leadership, Entrepreneurship and clinical Management in Dermatology” by Dr. Venkatram Mysore and Dr.

Chandrasekhar at Bangalore was an much required workshop for today's dermatologists. We all should join our hands and strive together

to promote our organization and thus bring dermatology on the pinnacle of glory and success in the coming years.

I welcome all to participate in first exclusive nail conference “Onychocon” in Bangalore.

Long live IADVL

Warm Regards

Dr. S.D.N. Guptha

Hon. General Secretary


Dr. P. Narasimha Rao

Dear members,

Greetings from IADVL secretariat.


From The Desk Of Organising Committee NEWS

The first six months of my office has been a busy and eventful affair with regards to activities of IADVL. The EC meeting at Coimbatore was

conducted on 28th and 29th of April 2012 successfully following which Mid Derma CC meet was held at Hyderabad on 14th and 15th July,

2012. The first ever combined meet of CC Mid DERMA meet along with 1st MID DERMACON CME & workshop at Hyderabad can be termed

as a success, both in terms of logistics involved as well as in the feasibility of conduct of both events together. The MID DERMACON CME &

workshop which was attended by more than 300 delegates from all over India was well appreciated. I owe my thanks to the national and

regional faculty for the help and cooperation extended in conduct of these events.

This year IADVL is participating in the EADV Prague 2012 meet by hosting a sister society meeting on 26th of September and more than a

dozen participants have already confirmed their participation. More members are welcome to participate.

The new initiative of informing about of activities of IADVL to its members through bulk SMS was started 3 months back. However, only up

to 3000 members are receiving them at present as mobile phone numbers of the all the members is not available with our office. With the

publication of new IADVL member directory (which under preparation), mobile numbers of more members would be available in future.

One more issue we are need to tackle is of problem of wrong addresses of our members. About 1000 IADVL news booklets have come

back to us due to his problem. We seek cooperation of state IADVL offices in correcting these and providing updated addresses.

Now we are at the second part of the year and elections of new office bearers is going to take place. IADVL seeks your active participation in

the election process. Those of you, who wish to cast their vote through web, please register yourselves for e-voting.

With best wishes and season's greetings,

P Narasimha Rao

Hon. Treasurer


Dr. D.B.N. Murthy

Dear Colleagues,

I sincerely thank you once again for making maiden Mid-DERMACON a great success.



As promised earlier we could raise some funds for staging combined Mid Derma CC meet and Mid-DERMACON without chipping a huge

portion from our most valued IADVL funds. Hope in future with proper planning, we will be able to mop up more funds and make Mid Derma

CC meet pay for itself without utilizing IADVL funds.

Since the issue of merger of DERMACON & ICD was solved amicably, we all should focus on making this international meet a grand

success and build confidence in the international community to stage more international conferences in India in future.

Long Live IADVL

With best regards

Yours sincerely

Dr. D.B.N. Murthy

President Dr. C R Srinivas and Hon Secretary Dr. P. Narasimha Rao

conducted the proceedings. The issues in the agenda taken up and

discussed were as follows.

1. Solution to Madhya Pradesh IADVL problem: Proposal by Dr CR


Background: There has been lot of discontent between MP IADVL

members and divisions have developed between them based in

regions. Number of complaints were received by IADVL national

body over last two years and Dr Chetan Oberoi and Dr Deepak Parikh

have attempted to bridge these gaps but could not succeed. : Society

or Association is far more important than any individual or place. I

firmly believe that mutually respectful and trustworthy dialogue will

help you resolve this issue. The central IADVL can help by appointing

central observer to convene and preside over the meeting of major

players of MP IADVL. To decide a venue and date if MP members


Discussion: The EC observed that there are divisions in the MP

IADVL and there is a need to bring them on to one platform and make

then united. Matter discussed for about solving the problem. Various

options were considered including holding elections to MP by central

EC. However, the EC considered appointing a central observer to

preside to convene and bring MP IADVL together. Dr Devesh Mishra,

Vice president of IADVL, volunteered to act as a central EC observer

and promised that he would try his best to bring the all the parties

concerned to the table and try to resolve the MP issue. The EC after

some deliberation has accepted his suggestion and appointed him as

central observer for MP Branch of IADVL and gave him mandate to

proceed with the task.

2. Allocation of DERMACON Venue through ballots:- Proposed by

Dr Suresh Talwar: Dr. Talwar proposed having DERMACON venue

through ballots for 1 year. If is successful then bids it should be next 3

years. Bids for the DERMACON venue should be 2 ½ years in

advance as per norms form various stated IADVL. Name of proposed

city, name of the bidding state, name of the organising secretary,

name of the scientific preferred secretary should be included in the

bids, he suggested. The election officer will prepare a ballot paper for

venue selection having details. Voters can have 1,2,3 choices of

venues. This will be sent in a separate envelope along with ballot

paper envelope and would be dispatched in one common envelope to

the members. Inspection of the venue will be done inspectors if the

1st venue fails preference will be given to 2nd one. Decision: It was

passed unanimously.

3. Zonal activivies of IADVL, involvement of Vice presidents and

Joint secretaries: Proposal by Dr Devesh Mishra. He suggested to

the house that as there are two vice-president/ joint secretaries in

the National EC, they should be involved in zonal activities. Both VPs

and Joint secretaries can look after 4 zones of IADVL and a few states

as the EC decides. He pointed out that such relegation of

responsibility to these EC members is is already there in our IADVL

Constitution, page no. 28. Hence, they should also be have a active

role at state IADVL conferences, elections of CUTICONS, etc..

Expenses if any should be borne by local branches for inviting

president, vice-president, secretary. Decision: It was passed in


4. All of the elected IADVL executives be given a chair in the front

row during their installation ceremony in the inauguration,

valedictory and other functions of our DERMACON. Proposal by Dr

Devesh Mishra and Dr Torsekhar: At present, the VPs (Two), Joint

Secy. (Two) get only a bouquet. Please give them their a few

moments of glory. That way, their posts get some sanctity and

credibility. I believe that they will share more the ever increasing loads

of IADVL duties and responsibilities. I declare that I am not an

interested party as is obvious as my installation is already over.

It was discussed in detail. Dr. Joshipura said EC members should be

on the dais when installation is going on. If EC recommends only

elected person can be on dais and not the nominated persons. Dr.

Rajeev Sharma opined that when installation of new EC is taking

place the persons who being installed must be there on dais. Once

you are doing valedictory function of IADVL, whole team including

the nominated members can be on the dais. If the number is more,

two rows of chairs should be on the dais, 1st row for the elected

people, 2nd row for nominated and valuable members during

inauguration. Decision: It was passed.

8. Opinions given by Constitution committee on two issues

referred them: Constitution committee. Constitution committee of

IADVL consisting of Dr. Suresh Joshipura (Chairperson), Dr. Ameet

Valia (Convener) Dr. Byravarathinam, Dr. Arijit Condoo, Dr. K.H.S

Rao, Dr. Putta Srininivas & Dr. Ramesh Bhat M. (recused himself)

opined in two issues referred to them as follows: Issue 1: Whether

the decision of ABGM to permit Karnataka Branch to host



DERMACON 2015at Mangalore is valid?” Opinion: The unanimous

opinion of the Constitution Committee is that this decision does not

conform to the provisions under the Constitution of IADVL. The

situation has arisen because of the decision to merge DERMACON

2014 with the ICD. Though this issue has not been specifically

referred to the Committee, the Committee is of the opinion that the

constitutional validity of this decision should be determined by

scrutinizing the minutes of the AGBMs in the Jaipur DERMACON.”

Issue 2: Whether the decision of ABGM for commencing year 2012

to merge ICD and DERMACON 2014 is constitutionally valid?

Opinion: “The unanimous opinion of the Constitution Committee is

that the decision does not conform to the provisions under the

Constitution of IADVL because of the following reasons: Combined

CC & AGBM for commencing year 2011 held on 5th Feb, 2011 at

Gurgaon had resolved against the merger. The minutes of the above

meeting were confirmed by the CC & closing year AGBM held on 9th

Feb, 2012 at Jaipur. As per the IADVL constitution, an international

conference can be combined with DERMACON only in “exceptional

circumstances” and such a situation has not been brought out before

the GB to reverse the decision of the two previous GBs”.

Both issues were put to vote for EC member's opinion: Issue one: 1.

Merger of ICD and DERMACON 2014. Decision: EC passed it

unanimously in favor of merger. Issue 2. Organising of DERMACON

2015 by Karnataka branch of IADVL at Mangalore: Decision:

Passed by majority decision of EC members.

The consequences and reasons of these decisions taken by the EC

against the opinion of Constitution committee was discussed. The

house finally decided to hold an Extra ordinary General body meeting

(EGBM) during MID DERMA CC meet for approval/ratification of its


9. ICD Venue issue: Dr. V. K Sharma informed the house regarding

the details of reasons for change of venue from Noida to New Delhi.

He stated that this change of venue has been informed to

international society. IADVL also informed. Hotel Ashok has been

booked which is a large hotel. Near by Samrat hotel complex which

has a capacity 255 rooms - has also been booked. The house pointed

to the fact that maximum capacity of the largest hall is only about

2000 and a larger hall of expected capacity of 4000 delegates need

to be erected if a combined DERMACON and ICD conference is to be


10. SARAD Meet 2015 venue selection: Selection of venue As both

Dr Jayadev Betkerur and Dr P. Narasimha Rao wanted to host 2015

SARAD conference which was allotted to India, during Jaipur

DERMACON 2012, it was decided that it should first get approval

regarding modalities of selection of venue for SARAD meet in India in

EC meet. Taken up at the EC meet. Opinion: Estimation of guest

would be around 1500 members. SARAD meeting will be in

Vol: 8 Issue: 2 14

August 2012

November Month. It should not be combined with national

conference, as per the decision of SARAD's GBM. Decision: As more

then one city is contesting to bid for it, the house decided to

announce it for all interested to bid through IADVL news letter and

if more than one bid is made, it should be selected through

national ballot as was proposed for DERMACON venue selection.

11. IADVL-GSK Postgraduate Quiz - Dermacon 2013:

Dr. Ramesh Bhat represented IADVL quiz committee. He stated that

all state CUTICONs will conduct Quiz under the supervision of Central

body with the help of National coordinator, under the IADVL-GSK

banner. Quiz master for the CUTICON should be from different state,

preferably from a different zone. Each zone is combined with two to

three states. Two teams will be selected from each zone. There will be

no zonal quiz this year. National observer will be select quiz master.

Regarding Question bank Quiz master should have freedom to frame

his own questions as long as they are noncontroversial. State level

Preliminary screening test, MCQs covering Correct answer carries (

+`1 )mark. wrong answers (-1/2). Financial implications would be

Rs. 16 Lakhs, which being sponsored by GSK Pharma.

12. IADVL text book UG: Details of the progress of the project by Dr.

Vishalakshi Viswanath. The first edition of IADVL Concise Textbook

of Dermatology has been successfully published Wiley Blackwell.

CD- ROM (MCQ and images), to be completed by March 2012.

Textbook and CD- ROM expected to be released in market in June

2012. Initially, approx. 7500 copies to be published- 4300 copies to

be marketed by CBIS distributors, 3200 to be distributed by Abbot

pharma who are sponsoring them, throughout India. The sponsors

has initially wanted to have their logo on the back cover of the text

book but later withdrew their request. Dr. Shaym Verma suggested to

have a permanent legal advisor for IADVL on the lines of auditor we

already have, for advise on all the legal issues which arise in its

administrative procedures.

13. Indian Dermatology Online Journal (IDOJ) Editor issue:-

Proposal by Dr Shyam Verma. The Editor and team of Indian

Dermatology Online Journal (IDOJ) have completed the term of 3

years. He requested the EC of IADVL to grant him and his team one

more term of 3 year up to 2015. Reasons: IDOJ is a new journal. It is

still in a state of evolution. It is waiting for getting indexed in PubMed.

Many creases are being evened out. We are currently working as a

very cohesive team with a common aim of taking the journal to newer

heights. It would therefore be a good idea if there is no change of

guard for IDOJ for the next term of 3 years to streamline this journal.

Since this journal is new I humbly suggest that all rules and

guidelines that dictate the IJDVL be employed for IDOJ as they are

both official organs of IADVL. Decision: Passed.

14. Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology



(IJDVL) issues: by Dr. D.M Thappa: Medknow is the publishers of

IJDVL. He opined that IJDVL could generate more revenue by

charging for downloading PDF files. There are new features and it

make it compactable for IPAD. In India will be free. In outside India it

will be chargeable.

29th April, 2012: EC meeting session 2

15. Request for participation of IADVL EC in a press conference

along with L'Oreal grant team in India: Proposal of L'oreal: There is

an upcoming jury meeting in India of L'oreal along with IADVL and it

would be the third year of the grant program. L'oreal would like to

seize the opportunity of the jury meeting and of IADVL presence as

scientific and dermatology experts along with the presence of L'Oreal

scientific experts, for a press conference dedicated to the

importance of skin research in India. This could give more light on the

sustainable effort of IADVL in supporting more research and will

increase awareness on the grant program. Decision: Sharing the

same stage at a press meet with L'oreal by IADVL is a different matter

altogether from the IADVL -L'oreal grant jury meeting. IADVL EC felt

such a combined press meet may not be ethical and hence not

approved by EC.

16. DERMACON 2013 Progress report by Dr. Ranjan Rawal (Org.

secretary): There is a good progress in the matter of DERMACON

2013 to be held from 24th to 27th January, 2013 at Ahmedabad,

and of IADVL Conferences.

20. International Speakers and Resource Person Database:

Proposal sent by Dr Rashmi Sarkar: Proposal: Every time IADVL

needs to find information on speakers/Resource persons for our

national conferences, we have scarcity of data on them. We choose

the speaker then the subject, rather than the other way round.

Discussion: It was proposed that Dr Rashmi Sarkar and Dr Shyam

Verma should start working on this project of organizing names who

are well known experts in their areas as a ready reference. Make

different headings of important diseases; build up database of

names, sex, department or place, city, country and area of special

interest, also most importantly their emails. Decision: passed.

21. The IADVL Academy report and proposals was presented by it

Convener Dr. Shyamanta Barua. The changes in the structure and

composition of the IADVL Academy and the SIGs were highlighted. It

was also reported that several SIGs are working on preparing

therapeutic guidelines in coordination with the IADVL Therapeutic

Guidelines Committee. In a related matter it was suggested by Dr VK

Sharma that existing guidelines if already present should be modified

and updated where ever possible rather than writing an entirely new

guidelines. Dr CR Srinivas agreed for the suggestion. To the question

whether the Convener can be a Special Interest Groups (SIGs)

member, Dr. Rajeev Sharma suggested that if he is doing well he can

me member of SIG as well.

A. The task of evaluation of the SIGs has been undertaken by the

Academy based on a set of criteria prepared by the Academy and the



its recommendations would be passed on to the Executive for

continuation/termination/ revamping of each SIG. In this regard, it

was mentioned that reports for evaluation has been received from

most SIGs but there has been no response from certain SIGs.

B. Conferences by SIGs were proposed by Dr CR Srinivas & Dr Barua

and suggested the name, DERMASIGCON followed by the SIG name

e.g. DERMASIGCON-Psoriasis/Pemphigus/Urticaria/Pigmentary

Dermatoses for them. It was suggested that even a non SIG member

can hold a conference involving SIGs members. The calendar can be

prepared by the Academy and bbidding can be done on the floor

during ABGM or by Election and voting in case of multiple bids.

Preference will be given to non-metro cities that may not have the

infrastructure to host a DERMACON at this point of time. The

concerned SIG members will be the national members of the

Scientific Committee and there will be a local Organising Committee.

The rules regarding finances and profit sharing could be the same as

applicable for DERMACON or with minor modifications and an

amount of Rs. 2 lacs could be made available as seed money.

C. IADVL Training Fellowship issues: Guidelines to be framed for

Evaluation of existing Fellowship centres, for deletion of nonfunctioning

Fellowship centres and for approving new Fellowship

centres. Dr. Manas Chatterjee and Dr Arijit Coondoo had prepared

evaluation forms previously and can be used with some

modifications. One is evaluation is programmer by the trainee other

is trainee by the programme Director. Grading to be given rather than

percentage. The increase for stipend for trainee from Rs 5000 to Rs.

10,000 has been suggested and approved. The Academy will,

henceforth, screen applications for Fellowship Centres & training

fellowships by constituting a panel of members for such screening.

Evaluation of existing Fellowship centres would be initiated and

criteria for approving new Fellowship centres would be drafted by the


D. IADVL SIG Research Grant: It was proposed that an IADVL SIG

Research Grant be instituted to fund research projects/ Multicentric

studies in the thrust areas of each SIG. The funding mechanism was

discussed. The format for application of the Research grant was


IADVL Academy on the web: The proposal for a dedicated web page

of the IADVL Academy in the iadvl association website iadvl.org was

passed by the EC. The proposed webpage will have links for each SIG

and Links to the IADVL and IJDVL/IDOJ websites.

E. DERMACON Orations & Award Papers: Dr Barua apprised that the

GB has passed the proposal to advance the abstract submission

deadlines for DERMACON Award Papers & orations to Aug 31.

However, the Organising & Scientific Committees of DERMACON

2013 have proposed to accept applications for orations and award

Vol: 8 Issue: 2 16

August 2012

papers till July 31, 2012 this time. It was further proposed that the

online abstract submission process should be updated and should

have all modalities for rejecting incomplete or invalid applications,

wherever applicable.

F. IADVL Academy Fellowships: Revision of criteria to award

Honorary Fellowships and revision of fees for applicants for paid

fellowship were discussed but it was finally decided that status quo

be maintained.

G. Regarding very poor at DERMACON AGBMs: Dr. Shyamanta Barua

proposed that a committee of 3 people has to form to look at the ways

of improving its attendance" should actually be "Regarding very poor

attendance at DERMACON AGBMs: Dr. C. R. Srinivas proposed that a

committee be formed with Dr. Devesh Mishra, Dr. Suresh Joshipura,

Dr. Narendra Patwardhan and Dr. Shyam Verma as members and Dr.

Shyamanta Barua as Member Secretary to look at the ways of

improving attendance in DERMACON AGBMs.”

22. Guidelines for Pharmaceutical support for SIG activities: Dr

Kiran Godse had brought forward this issue by a proposal of IADVL

approval for their SIG activity supported by a Pharma company. EC

felt that it is heartening that the activities of many SIGS are being

supported by Pharma industries. However, they may use this

opportunity to promote their products by labeling them as being

approved/supported by these SIGs of IADVL. Dr Barua suggested

that the guidelines for Pharmaceutical support for SIG activities can

be as follows: CMEs/Workshops/ Conferences can be supported by

pharmaceutical companies as is done in CUTICONs/DERMACONs

and will be governed by Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs)

when they are in place. If a grant has to be accepted for scientific

publications, it would be acknowledged with – "This publication has

been made possible by an educational grant from ..…." or "Print

courtesy from educational grant of …... ". It should be categorically

mentioned in an official agreement with the concerned

pharmaceutical company that it cannot construe such sponsorship

as an endorsement of any product or instrument or similar by IADVL.

23. DVL welfare trust issues were elaborated by Dr. Chetan Patel.

Proposed a single payment mode to become life member if any

member accepts to pay one lump sum amount Rs. 10,000/- as it

would suffice for 30 years of his life to take care of yearly

contribution. We can open this for members all who had already

joined also. As of now the annual membership is Rs. 300/- apart

from the joining fee. We need to encourage younger generation to join

it. The indemnity coverage for those would like to opt for it would be

be Rs. seven lacs, per case and Rs. fifteen lacs aggregate per year,

once it is applicable. One legal advisor should be at Baroda and there



is a need for legal support at state level as consumer protection act

issues need to be addressed in the local courts. Dr P. Narasimha Rao

had a long discussion with Dr Chetan Patel on various aspects of the

DVL trust guide lines and Dr Chetan Patel at the end said that he would

come with modified rules after discussing with DVL trust trustees by

MID DERMA cc meet.

24. Proposal by Dr Cr Srinivas- The Kandhari award: The

prestageous Kandhari award of IADVL should not be given to any

person form the state which is organizing DERMACON to avoid

conflict of interest and selection bias. It should preferably from other

states of India. Decision: Passed by EC.

25. Additional advance of Rs 20 lakhs to ICD from IADVL: Proposal

by Dr VK Sharma: Dr VK Sharma came with the request to IADVL

that he is need of 20 more lakhs, in addition to 50 lakhs already

given, to him for expenses involved in the preparations for ICD.

Decision: It was passed in principle by EC.

26. Return of Seed money by DERMACON 2013 organizing

committee: The organizing committee headed by Dr Joshipura gave

back the part of the seed money of Rs.10,00,000 to IADVL during EC

meet through a Cheque, 6 months before conducting the

conference!!. It has happened for the first time in history of IADVL and

indicates the strength of the Gujarat IADVL branch and people behind

it. Congratulations to all!!

27. DVL Welfare Trust Dr. Chetan N. Patel brief the members

regarding the Activity & Progress made by Trust. He informed the

members that till 31st March 2012, total 59 members have joined. He

also presented the unaudited Income - Expenditure Account &

Srinivas & Vice President Dr. R. G. Torsekar have joined the trust. Dr.

Chetan N. Patel requested to accommodate Immediate Past

Advisors. He also suggested taking one time fee of Rs. 10,000/- in

place of annual membership fees from the members of IADVL who

implementation of providing disability benefit & other benefits as well

as modalities of indemnity coverage. Dr. Chetan N. Patel answered

the queries raised by the members. He informed the members

regarding provisions of disability fund and health benefit etc. He also

informed the members regarding the procedures to be followed in

Vol: 8 Issue: 2 17

August 2012



New Proposals received and to be discussed in the CC Meet on 14th & 15th July, 2012

1. Dr. C.R. Srinivas - President Proposal

Proposal for cancellation of Workshop during DERMACON

As per our constitution DERMACON should not be for more than 3

days and one day CME. However many local body organize a

standalone workshop apart from CME and even along with CME

as a parallel session. CME is a plenary session and no parallel

workshop should be organised. No workshop should be permitted

one day prior to CME also as this prolongs the stay and some may

choose to attend the workshop and skip CME and conference to

cut short duration of stay. Even if permitted the organizers should

obtain prior permission and it should be merged with DERMACON.

2. Proposal by Dr Devesh Mishra

Regarding Quorum for CC meet and our AGBMs

The number of members to be present as a must should be 7 (at

least 3 can be other than office-bearers) for CC meet and 40 for

AGBMs respectively, is grossly less than desirable. Our member

strength is now nearing 7500 (around 6000 being LMs) . Also

number of state presidents and Sec. + EC members is over 50

without adding CC members from states.

We can have more numbers for fulfilling the “quorum” to reflect

our true member’s strength at these meets. As the present no’s

from the present constitution is old and grossly insufficient. Ref.

IADVL Constitution 2010, page 42, Quorum.

3. Dr. S.D.N Gupta Proposal

Dr SDN Gupta wanted to bring to the EC notice the fellowships

being conducted and held by non Dermatologists at Tamil Nadu.

One such advertisement was as follows: “We are conducting

various fellowship certificates courses to update and empower

the General Practitioners. One of the certificate course is on Sexual

Medicine. The course is co-ordinate and conducted under the

Directorship of “Dr. M. Balasubramanian” course fee: Rs.

15000/-, Duration-3 Months, Venue-IMA Hall, Tambaram.” For

Discussion at CC meet.

4. Proposal from Dr P Narasimha Rao and Dr DBN Murthy

Proposal 1. Increase in the allocation/provision for

telephone/mobile bill expenditure in constitution for President, Hon

Gen Secretary and Hon Treasurer: Proposal from Dr P Narasimha

Rao and Dr DBN Murthy.

Background: At present our constitution (page 25 under head

expenditure) limits the expenditure on telephone bill of HOn Gen

Secretary and Hon Treasurer to maximum of rs 5000 per year

which is grossly insufficient in this era multiple usage of mobile

(texting, telephoning, emailing, downloading info etc) for IADVL

official purposes. More over it does not include Presidents

telephone bill in the expenditure at all. Hence we propose as


Proposal: The expenditure of phone/mobile usage may be limited

to a maximum of 36,000 per year (3000 per month) for Hon Gen

secretary and 24,000 per year (2000 per month) for President

and Hon Treasurer which is the reasonable and realistic

expenditure expected in this era of increased communications and

usage of mobile for multi-tasking (texting, telephoning, emailing,

downloading info etc) for the activities of IADVL.

Proposal 2. Proposal for opening current account for IADVL -

propose the following for your perusal and consideration: IADVL

EC may be permitted to open a current account in addition to SB

account and fixed deposit accounts in same branch of the

nationalized bank, fully following existing rules and guidelines of

opening such an account.

Background: As per our constitution,(page 24 , No. 20) IADVL

can open a SB account and fixed deposit account in any

nationalized bank in its name. However, there is no provision for

opening a current account, which is required for smooth

functioning of IADVL financial activities.

Reasoning of need for current account: With increasing need for

online bookings (such as booking of online tickets for EC meet,

CC meet etc) and increasing international monetary transactions

(transfer of membership fee to ILDS, or other international IADVL

transactions, participation in society meetings) there is a need for

IADVL secretariat to perform internet based national and

international banking transactions, for which a current account

facility is required, as such facilities are not being extended to SB


This may be permitted on the similar guidelines as applicable to

the opening of SB account and should be in the same branch on

the name of IADVL only. Both account may be linked and shown as

Vol: 8 Issue: 2 18

August 2012

IADVL accounts only. A small part of IADVL funds may be kept in

current account as and when needed for such transactions.

5. Proposal from Dr P Narasimha Rao Proposal for inclusion of

names of states Goa, Uttarakhand etc in our constitution I have

observes to my dismay that in whole of our constitution there is no

mention of two states, Goa and Uttarakhand. They have to be

mentioned as part of combined branches of "Maharashtra& Goa"

and as "UP and Uttarakhand" Maharashtra is wrongly mentioned

as single state branch in our constitution, although it has been a

combined branch with Goa for a very many years.

Also the details of the states and UT which form a part of North

East branch has to be clearly mentioned. In effect, all the states

and union territories of India have to have mention somewhere in

our constitution, stating to which larger state they form a part or

mentioned as a part of combined branch. This would make IADVL

truly a pan Indian DVL association.

6. Agenda by Dr. Venkataram Mysore

Point 1: I had submitted the following point to central council in


The constitution states on Page no 34, 35 post of secretary,

treasurer, Joint secretary that they Must have been actively

involved in the affairs of the Association in an official capacity

*either at the central level or in the branch, combined branch level

or a Central Council member from the branch for a minimum

period of 2 year either continuous or with breaks. However it is not

specified what the official capacity is. This means that any

member with no significant administrative experience or even

minimal experience (such as CC member for two years) in the

association can contest for the two most important positions in

IADVL. This is a serious lacuna which needs to be addressed. This

was then referred to the constitution committee which accepted

the suggestion and recommended modifications in their report

and submitted to AGM in DERMACON Jaipur. However, to the best

of my knowledge, these have not been implemented in this year’s

election. I request you to kindly inform the house about the status

of the changes as advised by the constitution committee.

Point 2: All iadvl award winners should be recognized by printing

their names, along with their work done and reason why he/she

was given the award, and the nature of the award, in iadvl

newsletter and in conference abstract book. Presently only their

names and names of awards are being announced and it becomes

unclear as to why the awardee has been awarded.

Proposal: Nomenclature of sub-branches of IADVL State


The local city/town/region sub-branches of IADVL State Branches

should be named as IADVL Chapters for clarity and ease of

administrative hierarchy and function. This has been followed

successfully in the North East States Branch of IADVL. For e.g., the

local IADVL sub-branch at Dibrugarh is called Dibrugarh Chapter

of North East States Branch of IADVL. This nomenclature of

"Chapter" should be made applicable for all new local units of

IADVL as well as for those who have been functioning previously

by the name of sub-branches.

Proposal: Mandatory inclusion of all IADVL Life Members into

the IADVL General Yahoo e-Group

The membership of IADVL General Yahoo e-group should be made

mandatory for all Life Members (LMs) of IADVL. Once all the



existing LMs are enrolled into the group, all new LMs should be

automatically drafted into the group at the time of validating their

membership. We must ensure this so that IADVL becomes a 24 x 7

institution for all. All may not be active but even the lurkers will get

first hand information pertaining to all that is happening in their

association under a single umbrella. Moreover, this will inculcate

e-awareness amongst the members.

Name of the secondor: Dr Sanjeev Gupta LM/H/3000

Subject: Levy of fee for contesting elections- Regarding

Introduction: Respected Seniors and Dear Friends

A steep 'fee' (ranging from Rs 5000 to 20,000)has been decided

by the AGBM at Jaipur for contesting for the various posts of the

IADVL elections. Shouldn't it just be a nominal 'deposit' which

can be forfeited if the candidate fails to secure a certain

percentage of votes. For all others the 'deposit' is usually refunded.

That will deter the 'non-serious' candidates. And this deposit

should also be preferably reasonable / nominal so as not to deter

anybody. Otherwise to serve the association, one has to have

deep pockets too.

And why the 'grading' please. Why the fee should be different for

different posts? The electoral exercise is same for all posts then

why the difference?

The Proposal: 1.The Deposit for all posts under IADVL - election

should be nominal - for all posts preferably Rs 5000/- or less.

2.This Deposit should be same for all post. 3. The Deposit should

be forfeited in case the candidate polls less than 1/5th of the total

votes polled. 4. On withdrawal of the candidature, before the

prescribed date, the Deposit should be refunded in total. 5.The

changes should be effective immediately, and fee already received

should be considered as the deposit and excess fee if any, should

be refunded via DD or cheque.

New structure of IADVL-GSK National Quiz for Programme

for Post Graduates Students (IGNQPP) - 2012


This is the new structure of IGNQPP proposed and accepted by the

IADVL annual geral body meeting (AGBM) held at Jaipur on 11th

February, 2012. The changes in the structure and logistics of

conducting the IGNQPP were proposed to smoothen and

circumvent the issues and problems faced in the organizing of the

IADVL quiz all over India for the last 2 years.

A National IADVL IGNQPP committee has been formed to

coordinate and conduct the IADVL-GSK quiz, consisiting of Dr KA

Seetaram (Chairman), Dr Ramesh Bhat, Dr P. Narasimha Rao,, Dr

Ajith Tarakan and Dr Akshay Jain.

Structure of IADVL-GSK Quiz:

Stage 1:

State level Quiz: The IADVL IGNQPP committee would coordinate

with the state IADVL braches and would ascertain the dates of

CUTICONS to plan for state level quiz. The responsibility of

organizing the State level IADVL Quiz rests with the organizers of

the CUTICONS. Intimation should be sent to all departments of

medical colleges of that state by the CUTICON organizers to invite

PG students to participate in the quiz. State level quiz should be

conducted under IADVL-GSK banner and in the PRIME time slot

preferably on the FIRST day of CUTICON as it would be attract

post graduates and also would be informative to delegates. The

conduct of the Quiz would be supervised and coordinated by the

IADVL with the help of regional GSK representatives.

Method of conduct of Quiz: If there are 4 or > 4 colleges per state,

there will be a separate quiz for each state. If there are less than 4

colleges, then they would be clubbed with neighbouring states. A

panel of quiz masters would be provided to all state CUTICONS by

the IADVL IGNAPP committee. CUTICON organizers can call any

quiz master from that panel or any other IADVL member of their

choice but s/he should be from outside that state and should be

considered invited faculty. They should also appoint a senior

member of their state IADVL as observer for the conduct of quiz.

The logistics of arranging the travel and accommodation for the

Quiz master rests with the CUTICON organizers.

Finances: Participants from the same state will not be paid any

expenses. If Post graduates from two states are clubbed together

for State level quiz, the PG students from the neighbouring state

would be paid fixed amount of Rs. 5000/- for each participant

(Maximum of Rs. 10000/- for team) toward travel and other

expenses. To the CUTICON organizers, a cheque for Rs. 25,000/



would be handed over by IADVL in the presence of GSK

representative to towards the conduct of Quiz, to cover the

expenses for travel and accommodation of the quiz master.

Stage 2:

One team from each state qualified in the CUTICON finals, or in

their absence the runners up will participate in the national finals.

There will be probably 16-18 participating teams from states level

CUTICON quiz. (The exact number would be known once we

receive information from all the state secretaries). A preliminary

screening round conducted on the day of CME day (DERMACON

venue - Ahmadabad On 24th JAN) of the conference in one of the

halls predetermined. All the teams would be asked/given the same

questions or MCQS, a set of 30 to 50, and will be evaluated by the

quiz masters and the results announced the same day evening.

Four top teams among all the state finalists will be selected. By this

all the state teams will get the equal opportunity. National finals in

the similar format as it was being done till now and would be held

on 26th JAN 2012. There will be two quiz masters and one national

observer at DERMACON.

Finances: All the participating teams shall arrange their travel and

accommodation to the National level (stage 2) Quiz on their own.

Each member of the selected CUTICON team will be given

Rs15,000/- (Rs. 30000/- per team) to participate in the screening

test at DERMACON. The travel, accommodation and local

hospitality of the two quiz masters and the national observer at

DERMACON will be paid by IADVL. Arrangements for the

screening test at DERMACON venue (such as for Hall,

audiovisuals, Desks for the participants to write the test etc) would

be done by IADVL with the help of organizers of DERMACON.

GSK would be take care of arrangement of mementoes certificates

and prizes to a) CUTICON winners, CUTICON quiz masters and

coordinators, b) to the National quiz winner and runners, along

with National QUIZ masters and National observer.

Pattern of Quiz

State level: Preliminary screening test, if more than 4 teams.

MCQs covering all sub-specialities (Clinical Dermatology,

Venereology, Leprosy, Cosmetology, Pediatric dermatology,

Report of MID DERMACON CME/Workshop held on July 14 & 15 2012 at Hyderabad

Dr Anup Lahiri

IADVL had started a new concept of having a

mid-annual conference or CME between the

annual DERMACON from 2012 and fortunately

Hyderabad was the first city to hold the

conference. The most popular choice among

young Dermatologists is to learn aesthetic

Dermatology and Dermatosurgery and those

are the subject we choose to highlight at our

MID DERMACON meet in Hyderabad. Like our Dr IS Reddy

Hyderabadi cuisine, the renowned Biryani, we wanted all the delegates to remember this

conference experience with nostalgia. Hence, we organized a 2 day CME & workshop on

Cosmetology, Lasers and Dermatosurgery to provide” what's the latest?” in these fields,

apart from the live demo of Dermatosurgery which included procedures which can be

performed in day to day office practice.

CME was conducted by national Faculty of repute. Dr Niti khunger, Dr Munish Paul, Dr Zawar,

Dr Raghunath Reddy, Dr Ganesh Pai, Dr CR Srinivas, Dr P Narasimha Rao, Dr Satish Sawant,

Dr Swapnil Shah, Dr Sacchidanand, Dr Kiran Godse, Dr Suresh Talwar, Dr Niteen Dhipe are

some of those who shared their experience with the audience on topics wherein they have

rich expertise and interest. We had talks on subjects like use of Platelet rich plasma, fractional

lasers, fractional RF and relevance of sun screens in Indian skin, management of adult acne

etc. Newer procedures in Dermatosurgery and Dermatology and ever-sought-after advances

in chemical peel were also included, both in CME and workshop. We had two panel

discussions with experts in acne scar management and Laser hair removal, which gave

beginners the idea on how to start and deal with these situations. Use of Botox and fillers were


Workshop was a big success with all the registered delegates attending sessions till the end

with rapt attention. We had live demo on Nerve blocks, Nail surgery, acne surgery, chemical

peels, Botox , Fillers and fractional lasers. Demos were performed by experts in these fields,

like Dr Anup Lahiry, Dr Manas Chatterjee, Dr Sanjeev Aurangabadkar, Dr Niti khunger, Dr

Rajitha Damisetty and Dr Uvaneswari. Dr Niteen Dhepe kept the audience interested by his

pleasant compering of the workshop. We had a very able and enthusiastic guide of Dr

Raghunatha Reddy, central scientific committee member and co-coordinator of SIG

Dermatosurgery, without whose able guidance we would have fell short of expectations.

Finally Hyderabad will be grateful to Dr CR Srinivas, President of IADVL, Dr P Narasimha Rao,

Secretary IADVL and Dr DBN Murthy, treasurer IADVL and the executive of IADVL AP state

Branch, to have organized the 1st Mid DERMACON meet of IADVL in our twin cities,

Hyderabad & Secunderabad.
