    The Delhi High Court on Tuesday issued notice on the petition filed by a medical aspirant, challenging the vires of National Medical Commission (Foreign Medical Graduate Licentiate) Regulations, 2021, as ultra vires the Constitution.

    The Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Jyoti Singh has fixed the case for hearing on February 28.The petitioner is a medical aspirant, desirous of pursuing BS Biology (1.5 - 2 years) leading to Doctor of Medicine-MD (48 months) at at Lyceum North Western University, Philippines, which is at par with MBBS course in India.

    Section 36 of National Medical Commission Act, 2019 permits recognition of medical qualifications granted by medical institutions outside India.

    It is the petitioner's case that the impugned regulations of 2021 are ultra vires the parent statute. i.e., the National Medical Commission Act, 2019. Further, it is contended that the impugned regulations bring in certain new disabilities which will adversely affect her career and the careers of many Indian students who wish to take admission in foreign medical universities.

    The plea points out following issues:

    1. Regulation 4(i) of the impugned regulations has laid down the minimum duration of MBBS course (54 months) for recognition in India.

    It is stated that this will jeopardize careers of students pursuing, and those who wish to pursue undergraduate medical course (less than 54 months) from foreign countries.'...MBBS course with less than 54 months of course duration is already recognised by Section 36(4) of the NMC Act. Now, the impugned notification, which is a subordinate legislation, cannot override or  amend Section 36(4) of the NMC Act,' the plea reads.  Read More
