The students aspiring to do MBBS or BDS abroad will be given a no-objection certificate by the Medical Council of India   only if they have cleared the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test (NEET UG 2018). The Central Board of Secondary Education  has  issued a notification on NEET 2018 saying that the decision was on the basis of a recommendation of the ministry of health.

    Then there should not be exit exam for foreign medical graduates. If exit exam is to be done, it should be made compulsory for those who have passed from India too.

    The Ministry of Health, GOI and the MCI has taken a right decision to maintain the quality of medical education in India by introducing NEET for those who want to pursue MBBS or BDS courses abroad. Otherwise earlier only those used to go abroad either the wards of rich people or duped by the agents by paying hefty sums. In some cases their main purpose was to get degree by hook or crook. And some of the countries are offering MD degrees (equivalent of MBBS). They just mimic the real MD (post- graduate) degree which even educated people cannot distinguish it but to talk of layman or illiterates.

    The MOH should also make sure that anyone who goes for a medical qualification in India or abroad, should have basic eligibility as per NEET. Also, anyone who wants to be licensed by the MCI to practise clinical medicine of the modern scientific curriculum should also pass the NEXT, the licensing examination proposed by the MCI. henceforth, ie. from 2019 onwards. Those who are already registered may need a recertification when the rules are finalised by the MCI or its successor NMC.

    Why the Govt wants to send Doctors and Dentists abroad? Is it becos they believe that there are surplus of Doctors & Dentists here in India?? Remember that there is a political outcry that we dont have enough doctors here... and hence Govt is advocating legalised quackery by permitting Vaidyars and Homeopaths to practise Modern Medicine!! Totally unacceptable double-standards threatening the health of the poor Indian citizen!!! Legalised quackery zindaabaad!! Pity my Incredible INDIYAA!!!

    For once the ministry seems to have made a right decision, hope there is no "catch22" or loophole!
