0

A post is being widely shared on social media claiming that the National Medical Commission (NMC) had notified students studying abroad to register for an eligibility certificate by 31 December 2021. The post even claims that the students who started studying in foreign medical institutions on or after 01 January 2019 must register under the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956 at the NMC. Let us fact-check the claim made in the post.

Claim: National Medical Commission (NMC) recently notified about an eligibility certificate for students studying abroad.

Fact: No such notification was issued by National Medical Commission (NMC) notifying students studying abroad about an eligibility certificate. PIB Fact Check debunked the claim that students who started studying in foreign medical institutions on or after 01 January 2019 need to get an eligibility certificate by 31 December 2021. Hence, the claim made in the post is FALSE.

There are no recent news articles about the National Medical Commission (NMC) notifying students studying abroad about an eligibility certificate. We could not find any such circular/ public notice/ notification about an eligibility certificate for students studying abroad issued recently, on the official website of NMC. The Information Desk for students studying abroad, provided on the website, does not mention any such notification of a deadline of 31 December 2021 for an eligibility certificate.

PIB Fact Check had tweeted about a similar claim saying that the NMC had not issued any such notice. The tweet debunked the claim that students who started studying in foreign medical institutions on or after 01 January 2019 need to get an eligibility certificate by 31 December 2021. The official Twitter handle of the National Medical Commission had retweeted the fact-check made PIB.

The National Medical Commission (NMC) has been constituted by an act of Parliament known as the National Medical Commission Act, 2019 which came into force on 25 September 2020. ‘The Board of Governors in supersession of Medical Council of India constituted under section 3A of the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956 stands dissolved thereafter’, according to the official website of NMC.

To sum it up, the National Medical Commission did not notify about an eligibility certificate to be registered by the end of the year by students studying abroad.
