Medical MSc teachers demand rollback of NMC guidelines, protest at Jantar Mantar
New Delhi: Demanding immediate rollback of the National Medical Commission (NMC) guidelines concerning the appointment of Medical MSc/Ph.D teachers in medical colleges, the non-medical teachers and students pursuing medical MSc courses across India converged at Jantar Mantar under the banner of the National M.Sc Medical Teachers' Association (NMMTA) as a part of the nation-wide protest against the sudden reduction in the percentage of non-MBBS teachers.
At Jantar Mantar, where the faculty and students had gathered, slogans were raised denouncing the NMC and seeking the Health Ministry's intervention. The agitated members have submitted a memorandum to the Health Ministry seeking a rollback of the guidelines along with the fulfilment of many other demands.
Medical Dialogues team had earlier reported that aggravated by the non-action of the authorities to date, the association had decided to hold the protest at Jantar Mantar on 20th March.
