A Group of Ministers (GoM) headed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley approved the draft of National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill, after which the Health Ministry moved a Cabinet note on the Bill seeking to replace apex medical education regulator Medical Council of India (MCI) with a new and transparent body, the National Medical Commission (NMC) and enabling forward movement in the area of medical education reform which began last year with the introduction of NEET examination for undergraduate and postgraduate admissions. The Bill is now sent for inter-ministerial consultations.
Some of the important aspects of the NMC Bill, 2017 are:

1. The NMC, which would replace the MCI, will have four autonomous boards tasked with conducting undergraduate and postgraduate education, assessing and rating medical institutions, registering practitioners and enforcing medical ethics.

2. Unlike for MCI where all members were elected, the GoM has allowed only 9 out of 29 commission members for NMC to be elected while rest will be selected.

3. All doctors must be registered in the National Register to practice in the country.

4. An exit examination, called National Licentiate Examination, is made compulsory for all MBBS graduates to clear for the purpose of grant of a licence to practice and enrollment in Medical Register(s). This exam will also be used as the entrance examination for postgraduate admissions...

Selected candidates instead of elected..... Who will select them again politicians /business men influenced people..? So again same thing chance for lobby and chance for corruption much more... Bucket system of lobby to get selected will start... More over as per my knowledge of nmc draft only 4 are medicine specialist from modern medicine remaining are not from modern medicine so voting power is too low and then all other alternative medicine people will take final decisions..... Not a good thing I feel... Read more
