Supreme Court India

MBBS: Great news for those who pursued their MBBS degrees abroad! The Supreme Court has declared that foreign MBBS graduates undertaking internships in Indian colleges will now receive stipends equivalent to those received by MBBS graduates from Indian institutions. This decision, announced by the apex court, emphasizes that differential treatment towards foreign MBBS graduates is unjustifiable. Justices Sudhanshu Dhulia and Prasanna Bhalchandra Varale delivered this verdict in response to a petition.

The bench of the Supreme Court has requested information from the National Medical Commission on Monday regarding stipend payments to foreign medical graduates at three specified colleges: Atal Bihari Vajpayee Government Medical College in Vidisha, Dr. Lakshminarayan Pandey Government Medical College in Ratlam, and Employees State Insurance Corporation Medical College in Alwar.


The Supreme Court had demanded a response from the NMC (National Medical Commission).

In a recent update, the Supreme Court revisited a hearing held on January 23, concerning the petition of five foreign medical graduates. These graduates had urged responses from both the National Medical Commission and the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Government Medical College. Now, the Court has expanded its stance, asserting that foreign medical graduates interning at various other medical colleges should also be entitled to full stipends.
