National Medical Commission Act Is Student Friendly: Health Minister


NEW DELHI: The National Medical Commission (NMC) Act is a student friendly initiative, said Dr Harsh Vardhan, Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare while addressing media persons on the NMC Act 2019. After describing the NMC act as a "progressive legislation", the minister said it "will reduce the burden on students, ensure probity in medical education, bring down costs of medical education, simplify procedures, help to enhance the number of medical seats in India, ensure quality education, and provide wider access to people for quality healthcare".
"It is a game changing reform of transformational nature. I am sure that under the NMC, medical education in the country will attain its zenith in the years to come," he said.

He added that one of the mandates of NMC is to look at the cost of medical education.

It also provides for a common entrance examination for MBBS (NEET) along with common counseling for all medical institutions in the country.

"This provision will prevent seat blocking in parallel counseling processes and will eliminate the need for students to approach multiple colleges and take part in multiple counseling processes for admission," he said.

"This will save students and their families from unnecessary physical and financial trauma," he added.
