In contrast to the Government’s view and Draft NMC bill 2017 that the institutions like AIIMS, JIPMER etc should be exempted from Licentiate exam the Parliamentary panel think otherwise and suggested its inclusion. The panel stated ” Further, the Committee fails to understand as to how the MBBS students passing out from AIIMS, JIPMER and such other institutions on which NMC Act will not be applicable, will be allowed to get registered in the State/National Register or get admission into postgraduate courses in other medical institutions, without qualifying the NLE. In this regard, the Committee notes the views of the Government and recommends for inclusion of other medical institutions established by separate Act of Parliament in clause 15(1). The Committee also recommends suitable changes in the clause 15(5) to incorporate such medical institutions for conducting common counseling for admission to the postgraduate courses.”
