The National Medical Commission has asked Indian students not to take admission in medical colleges in Pakistan. Similar advice was given by the University Grants Commission i.e. UGC and All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) a few days back.
New Delhi, PTI. The National Medical Commission (NMC) has advised Indian students not to take admission in medical colleges in Pakistan. The public notice issued by the National Medical Commission (NMC) comes after a joint suggestion by the University Grants Commission (UGC) and the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) that Indian students should be admitted to any college or educational institution in Pakistan. I should not enroll myself. Students doing so will not be eligible to find a job or pursue higher education in India.
In a statement issued by the National Medical Commission (NMC), it has been said that all concerned are advised not to travel to Pakistan for medical education. Any Indian national/foreign national of India who wants to take admission in MBBS/BDS or equivalent medical course in any medical college in Pakistan will not be eligible to appear in FMGE. Not only this, on the basis of such educational qualification, no student will be entitled to get employment in the said category in India.
Earlier, the University Grants Commission i.e. UGC and All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) had also warned Indian students. Both the regulators had said that Indian students should not go to Pakistan for higher education as the degree there is not valid in India. However, both the regulators had also given relief to the refugees from Pakistan. Regulators had said that higher education degrees of refugees who have got Indian citizenship can be considered eligible for India jobs after the approval of the Ministry of Home Affairs. Not only this, concession has also been given to those who had enrolled for such degrees before December 2018.
