Re-opening of Medical College – As per MoHFW
From quite a long time, educational institutions remained close, due to prevailing pandemic situation. However, it is now time that assuming classes becomes very necessary as the losses are concerned. Accordingly, to open the Medical Colleges once again, a notification is issued recently by the MoHFW.
However, for the sake of improvement as well as progress in the field of education in the sector of medicine, the NMC viewed that, starting the classes of the same as early as possible is of dire necessity. Further, the National Medical Commission looked for all the possible factors and decided that opening all the Medical Colleges in India on 1st December or so will be the best possible decision and action.
Other Important Decisions
The re-opening of the medical colleges is an excellent decision undertaken by the concerned authorities. Regarding the same, Home Affairs, PIB as well as MoHFW, has granted permission to the NMC. So, with immediate effect, it is hoped that the medical colleges will assume their classes soon.
However, this pandemic scenario has slowed down the educational process and thus, coming up with new decisions is a big task to be carried out. NMC has also stated that this decision will be in concordance with other norms of States/UTs laid down for pandemic.
Accordingly, the year of 2021 will experience a delay in the NEET PG Examination. Following that, even the 2020 batch students’ faced colossal loss in their academics amidst the corona situation and their classes will begin soon from 1st February in the year 2021.
