MCI has ruled that only MBBS doctors registered with it or with state medical councils are eligible to sign diagnostic reports. The Director of National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) had written to MCI to confirm the eligibility to sign medical lab reports among:
1. MSc with PhD candidates who are not registered with MCI
2. MBBS registered with MCI/State Medical Council
3. PhD scholars in various science disciplines
After being considered by Ethics Committee and Executive Committee, it has been decided that all lab reports are to be signed/countersigned by persons registered with MCI/State Medical Council.

All Lab work done by DMLT or BMLT qualified Person so it is better to sign on Lab report by a Lab Professional at the place of Plain MBBS Person.
