NMC Warns Medical Aspirants About Fake MBBS Allotment Letters
Police had arrested ‘MBBS Admission’ Racket scammers in Noida in January. 2 female students were caught with fake allotment letters in Kanpur medical college.
The National Medical Commission (NMC) issued a warning to medical aspirants against falling for scams involving fraudulent letters allotted MBBS seats that are becoming viral on social media.
The bogus allotment letters, according to NMC, are signed by the secretary in error. The commission has warned parents and guardians to watch out for criminals and avoid falling into any such scams.
The official announcement states, “It is brought to the public’s attention that none of the NMC officers and its Boards releases any letter either for admission in the medical college or participates in the medical college allotment procedure. According to the NMC, occurrences like this are also meant to harm the Commission’s reputation.
NMC has already spoken out to caution students against fraudulent notices or circulars that are meant to defraud hopefuls.
The commission warned applicants against fake allotment letters that were printed in its name and sent to applicants seeking admission to undergraduate (UG) programs in medical institutions all throughout India in April of last year.
Guidelines for medical students’ professional obligations were released by the National Medical Commission on April 10, 2023.
One of the recommendations in these rules advised medical students to refrain from posting random patient- and patient-related information on social media.
The recommendations emphasized the importance of learning the local tongue for successful patient communication.
In the meantime, NMC sanctioned two new medical schools in Telangana, each with 100 seats for the MBBS program during the academic year 2023–2024.
These brand-new medical schools are situated in Kamareddy and Kumuram Bheem Asifabad. Additionally, Sri Thaneeru Harish Rao, the Telangana Health Minister, announced the colleges on April 8.
The two new medical colleges are anticipated to improve healthcare amenities and medical institutions in Telangana’s rural districts.
Telangana’s health minister reaffirmed the progress and noted that “it is a significant step towards realizing Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao’s vision.”
He further emphasized that seven additional medical colleges, which have yet to receive approval, will be beneficial to aspiring medical professionals.
