NMC Warns Against Fake News On New Medical Colleges or Increased Seats

The National Medical Commission (NMC) has issued a public notice urging caution against misleading news reports. These reports are concerning the establishment of new medical colleges and the allocation of undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate (PG) medical seats for the academic year 2024-25. This notice was issued on April 10, 2024.

The NMC identified instances of “fake news” in print and electronic media regarding these topics. They highlight that some news reports contain either misleading headlines or unsubstantiated content.

As of now, the Medical Assessment & Rating Board (MARB) under the NMC has not approved any applications for establishing new medical colleges or increasing UG/PG medical seats for the 2024-25 academic year. Applications received for this session are still under review.

Any decisions made by the NMC regarding these matters will be promptly uploaded on their official website.

In light of this, the NMC cautions all stakeholders and the general public to be wary of misleading or baseless news circulating in print and electronic media.
