The National Medical Commission (NMC) has cautioned Indian students against enrolling in Pakistani medical schools. The NMC's public notice came just days after the University Grants Commission (UGC) and the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) issued a joint advisory urging Indian students not to enrol in any college or educational institution in Pakistan, warning that if they do, they will be unable to find work or pursue higher education in Pakistan. It is strongly urged that anyone interested in pursuing medical education in Pakistan refrain from doing so. Any Indian national/overseas citizen of India who wishes to enrol in an MBBS/BDS or equivalent medical course in any medical college in Pakistan is ineligible to sit for the FMGE or seek employment in India based on educational qualifications obtained in Pakistan, with the exception of those who enrolled in Pakistan degree colleges before December 2018 or later after receiving security clearance from the MHA. The FMGE/NEXT is an exam that candidates must pass in order to practise in India. Migrants and their children who received a medical degree or higher education in Pakistan and were granted Indian citizenship would be allowed to sit for the FMGE/NEXT or seek work in India after receiving security clearance from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).
