Medics protest against NMC Bill

Hundreds of medical students took part in a protest on Tuesday against the National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill.

"We strongly protest this unilateral and undemocratic move  of the Union Government," said Dr Sudha, the president of the Medical Service Centre. In her view, the  proposed commission would be  an undemocratic and bureaucratic body as all  its members would be nominated. The Central government will have a direct bureaucratic control over the commission, curtailing  its autonomy and democracy, she added.

V N Rajashekar, president,  All India Democratic Students' Organisation (AIDSO),  said: "As per the NMC Bill, massive changes in medical education, including exam systems, will take place that will be detrimental to the interests of medical students, doctors and people as a whole."
