The provisions are being specifically notified after the Delhi HC ordered a stay on the implementation of the Ministry of Health order calling for nominations for the purpose of formation of the NMC MAC. The court was responding to a petition filed by a Delhi medical practitioner that alleged that till date no rules, regulation, guidelines or procedure have been laid down under the NMC act for conducting the nomination, and hence in absence of procedures, the Health Ministry is bad in law inviting the nominations for the purpose of formation of the body
