The bill to constitute the National Medical Commission (NMC) which will replace the Medical Council of India (MCI) will be tabled in the next session of Parliament, said Union minister for health and family welfare J P Nadda here on Monday.
The draft National Medical Commission Bill, 2016 has already been circulated for discussion among the group of ministers (GoM). The reviews by the GoM are in the final stages, said the minister.
He said the,"NMC, which will steer medical education in the country in future, will not solely be a nominated body. It will also have elected members".
He also dismissed the reports that the educational institutions run by the minorities will be exempted from the purview of the NEET for selecting students for medical education. "NEET has ushered in transparency in the field and no institution will be exempted," Nadda said.
He said population will be the main criteria for allocating central funds to start diagnostic and medicine units in primary health centres and taluk and district hospitals. The same criteria will be considered to start dialysis units in district hospitals, under the scheme launched by the prime minister. The states have to submit a programme implementation plan (PIP) to the Centre for availing such funds, the minister said.
Study medical abroad at an affordable cost without NEET and Donation.
