The Supreme Court has decided to intervene and assist Indian students who have returned to their home country owing to the Ukraine conflict and Covid. The Supreme Court has now directed the National Medical Commission (NMC) to draught a programme allowing students to finish clinical training in medical institutions throughout the country within two months. The panel of judges Hemant Gupta and V Ramasubramanian was hearing the NMC's appeal against a Madras High Court judgement allowing Chinese university students to register provisionally in India. The Supreme Court, on the other hand, decided that refusing the provisional registration was correct. The bench, on the other hand, was sympathetic to the situation of Indian students who were unable to complete their clinical/practical training at foreign institutions because to the Covid issue and the Ukraine-Russia war. The Supreme Court ordered NMC to draught a scheme as a one-time measure within two months to allow the student and other similarly situated students who have not yet completed clinical training to do so in India at medical colleges identified by the appellant for a limited period of time and at such charges as the appellant determines.
