As per the notice, the responses have to be submitted in a Word (.dox) format or machine-readable PDF format. Responses have to be mailed with the subject tagline "Comments on draft Post-Graduate Medical Education Regulations-2023" to this address: comments.
The Federation of All India Resident Doctors' Association (FORDA), on X, has separately asked stakeholders to send their feedback on the NMC notice. "Attention! Kindly send your suggestions/ feedback/ points of contention against the PG regulations issued by @NMC_IND to our official email id. firstname.lastname@example.org Every voice is important!" the tweet says.
The NMC, on August 1, published the revised Undergraduate Medical Education Regulations 2023. Several doctors' associations approved of the changes and lauded the NMC for introducing them. However, a section of non-medical teachers, the MSc and PhD holders, in medical colleges were unhappy with the new regulations and continue to demand its rollback.
