Permission to Doctors with Foreign Degrees to Practice in India

New Delhi.  Medical practice in India is possible only when a person is given enrollment by a State Medical Council or the Medical Council of India (MCI) on the basis of the medical qualification recognized under the Indian Medical Council Act 1956. When an Indian citizen obtains medical qualification from any medical institution in any country outside India, which is recognized for enrolment as medical practitioner in that country, he/she shall be entitled for enrollment on any medical register maintained by a State Medical Council or to have his/her name entered in the Indian Medical Register only after qualifying the Screening Test prescribed for the purpose by the Medical Council of India (MCI).

As per the information furnished by MCI, they have not conducted any detailed survey about medical syllabi of foreign countries. However, in the recent past the Central Government had sent delegations, which included members from MCI, to China and Russia for assessing the standard of medical education in those countries.

This information was given by the Minister for Health & Family Welfare Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad in written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today.
