Delhi High Court upholds MCI's regulation making NEET mandatory to pursue medicine abroad

Delhi High Court has upheld the Medical Council of India's (MCI) amended regulation making the National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET) qualification a prerequisite to study medicine in a foreign university.

The court directed the MCI to grant eligibility certificates to candidates, who want to study medicine abroad but could not pass NEET, for this year. However, from next year, the students will have to pass NEET to study abroad, as required by the amended screening test regulations.

The bench stated, "This court is of the opinion that the MCI’s amended regulations, mandating that those desirous of studying abroad, had to appear and qualify in NEET has direct nexus with the quality of professionals who wish to practice the medical profession and seek enrolment in the State register, for that purpose. It is now essential that everyone wishing to secure admission to any medical college in India has to appear and clear the NEET. Such a requirement is neither unreasonable nor arbitrary."

The order came on a batch of petitions filed by the MCI, challenging the amendments to the Foreign Medical Institution Regulations, 2002, and Screening Test Regulations, 2002.
