Supreme Court to hear batch of pleas by Ukraine returned medicos today
The pending case in Supreme Court related to Ukraine's returned medical students will be heard today, September 23. In this case, through a batch of pleas, Ukraine returned medicos have demanded to study in Indian medical colleges. The Centre has said that there is no provision in NMC to allow these students to continue studies in India and this will also affect the medical education standard in India. The Centre also said that if these students get accommodated in Indian private medical colleges, they would not be able to afford the fees as due to affordability they chose to study medical education in Ukraine. The court had advised the Centre to create a portal for these students to maintain transparency.
