29 March 2018 Current Affairs: The Union Cabinet approved amendments to the National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill including removing the contentious provision of Bridge Course which would have allowed practitioners of alternative medicines to pursue allopathy.
Observing the need to act strictly against unqualified practitioners, the government approved an amendment to make the punishment for any unauthorized practice of medicine severe by including a provision for the imprisonment of up to one year along with a fine extending to up to five lakh rupees.
The cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi also approved that the final MBBS examination will be held as a common exam throughout the country and will serve as an exit test to be called the National Exit Test (NEXT). Thus, students would not have to appear in a separate exam after MBBS to get a license to practice and 'NEXT' would serve as the screening test for doctors with foreign medical qualifications in order to practice in India.
