The National Medical Commission (NMC) on Friday warned MBBS aspirants against a “misleading” advertisement published by Singhania University in newspapers in connection with MBBS seats. The commission clarified that if any medical student enrolls in the college, the admission will be treated as illegal.
“The said institution has stated in its advertisement published in various newspapers that the Hon’ble High Court in the case of IGNOU, has held that there is no provision in the Medical Council of India Act which authorizes and authorizes BoG-MCI to grant permission or recognition. to IGNOU so that it can take admission and impart training in MBBS and other medical courses. The said institution maliciously claims that it is covered by a judgment of the High Court without reference to the title of the case and to the Court that pronounced it,” the NMC said.
NMC labeled Singhania University’s advertisement as baseless and frivolous and added that it was in complete violation of the law.
“It may be noted that the claim made by the Singhania University violates the provisions of the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956 and also the NMC Act, 2019 and the regulations made thereunder. Accordingly, any admission made by Singhania University, Pacheri Bari, District Jhunhunu, Rajasthan in the course of Medicine (MBBS) is illegal and void ab initio,” NMC clarified.
