Health Ministry amends MCI rules on Disability Quota for MBB
In a major victory for candidates with disabilities aspiring to become doctors, the Union Health Ministry amended the controversial Medical Council of India’s (MCI) guidelines debarring admissions to people with specific disabilities.

Earlier there was a representation by 75 doctors with disabilities from across the country to frame new guidelines. Dr. Satendra Singh, who lead this advocacy group had also filed writ petition in the Supreme Court appealing to quash these guidelines.

The ministry in its response to the SC query accepted the MCI guidelines with several amendments benefiting candidates with disabilities. The ministry rejected the MCI recommendation that learning disability is not quantifiable.
