NMC Regulations for Transfer of Indian Students Pursuing MBBS Abroad

Because of the increased rivalry in the medical industry in India, many Indian students are looking for MBBS possibilities abroad. Every year, hundreds of Indian medical students study MBBS at overseas medical universities/institutions. However, many Indian students studying in medical universities in Ukraine and other foreign countries are now pursuing university admission to Indian medical colleges to finish their medical degrees. The National Medical Commission, on the other hand, has dashed the aspirations of foreign returning Indian students by rejecting their applications. This is now the only option for such Indian students.
