Medical Dialogues team had earlier reported that strong objections were raised from various sections of the Medical Community, which had opposed the limited representation of the medical fraternity in the impending commission. Clarifying on this the minister stated that the NMC, which will steer medical education in the country in future, will not solely be a nominated body. "It will also have elected members," he said.
The minister also added that the many objections had been raised by the Indian Medical Association, whose issues have now been addressed and its office bearers are now taken on board.
Regarding objections raised by other groups, he stated that many groups are opposing the bill due to lack of understanding. "They have not seen the bill. Once they know the contents, they will withdraw the objections," he told TOI.
