After AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) and UGC (University Grants Commission) issued a joint advisory warning students against pursuing higher education in Pakistan, recently, the National Medical Commission (NMC ) also issued a similar public notice. Now, NMC and the Dental Council of India (DCI) have released a new statement.

NMC and DCI have advised all concerned to refrain from traveling to the neighboring country Pakistan to pursue medical/dental studies. Officials shared this information on Tuesday, May 3.

According to information released in this regard by NMC and DCI, Indian nationals/overseas citizens who hope to gain admission for MBBS/BDS or equivalent medical/dental course in any medical/dental college in Pakistan will not will be more eligible to attempt the Foreign Medical Graduates Examination (FMGE)/screening test or gain employment in India on the basis of degrees in any subject acquired in Pakistan. Except for those who had joined the colleges/academic institutions of Pakistan before December 2018 or later after obtaining security clearance from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) as stated in an IANS report.

“However, migrants and their children who have obtained a medical/dental degree or higher education in Pakistan and who have obtained Indian citizenship would continue to be eligible to appear in the FMGE/screening test or seek employment in India after obtaining security clearance from MHA,” NMC and DCI said.
