Can you please enlighten us on the medical process that you went through.
Regards & Thanks
MEDICAL Examinations (as they were in our case)
With the MR comes the list of the registered DMPs(Designated Medical Practitioner),citywise..There are about 3-4 in Mumbai.We chose one nearest to our residence.Set an appointment for the next day.
Do carry your original passport with 2-3 photocopies, about 10 photographs(passport size or visa photos any are fine),IMM1017 form printouts & MR email copy from NDVO (comes in the email with the MR letter),all your medical reports,xrays,hospitalisation/surgery records & documents,drug prescriptions etc(carry photocopies of the latest reports & prescriptions if any- we were asked to attach them in our report.)
There is no need to fast(usually required for pathology blood tests) as was told to us while setting up the appointment but my spouse & I did anyways.Arrived at the medical centre at 8.30am, the fees as recommended on a sheet which comes with the MR is INR 3100 per head(adults) was paid by us & the receipts obtained are to be kept safely as they are to be sent to NDVO as proof of undergoing tests.
We had a clinic's co-ordinator who guided us through the process there.
Tests started with depositing a Urine Sample followed by a blood extraction.
Next, we were provided with copies of forms-IMM5419(DMP will give you these) which was told to be filled in certain places & signed in many places on its many pages(along with affixing the photos). This form, along with the copy of IMM1017 that you bring along is to be filled in duplicate.
The form filling will take about 15-20min tops..hand over the forms to the co-ordinator once done..
Next, we had our height,weight & BMI measured & was noted on the form by the co-ordinator. Then, we were called in for the Chest Xray. Following that was a full physical.
In the physical, you will be asked about the history of your illnesses(from childhood) & about the above mentioned reports/documents that you share with the DMP.It has been mentioned on a few threads that its good to share all your medical history-just in case something comes up in the bloodtests that you suffer & have not disclosed then you will be asked for a retest.. so better to be honest..I took this advice:)
Next in the physical your BP,pulse will be noted,your body will be examined for inoculation marks scars,tattoos,surgery scars, birthmarks(females have a breast exam as well)
Then there was an eyetest-colourblindness,nearsightedness & farsightedness(you have to be able to read/discern the numbers/patterns on the chart basically) & then the DMP in conversation also ascertains if your hearing is ok..I had a lady doctor & she was asking me about my work,designation,duties etc(probably meant to assess the candidate's mental health as well) & suddenly she started talking very softly to see if Im able to hear her..
Lastly, I was told to attach photocopies of a couple of medical reports & prescription druglist that I take on a regular basis..same for my spouse
I have a slight BP problem & cholesterol/lipids as well(she made a note of it on her report)..I asked her if it was a thing of concern- she said its common so no need to worry...I read on some other threads that even diabetes(unless its major) is not an issue
Then before leaving on asking,we were told it would take about 10 working days for them(DMP) to process & send all medical reports to NDVO. The whole MR Test process took just over 2 hours..
Hope this is helpful for whoever are taking the MR.. anybody have any additions/inputs from their MR experience pls do add-in
Lotsa Best Wishes to all awaiting the MR...
Best regards & take care...
