Amidst the Ukraine Conflict, the Government of India undertook "Operation Ganga," repatriating approximately 18,282 Indian nationals, predominantly medical students, back to India. To assist these students, the National Medical Commission (NMC) implemented several measures tailored to different stages of their academic programmes.



Dr. Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, addressing the Lok Sabha, outlined tailored approaches. Indian students completing their undergraduate medicine course and obtaining a course/degree completion certificate by June 30, 2022, were authorized to undertake the Foreign Medical Graduate Examination (FMGE). Successful clearance of the FMGE mandates a two-year Compulsory Rotating Medical Internship (CRMI) for registration eligibility.



Additionally, the NMC extended support for Ukraine's Academic Mobility Programme during the conflict. This initiative allowed the temporary relocation of students to universities outside India. Returning Foreign Medical Graduates (FMGs) from Ukraine were granted a unique opportunity to conclude their medical studies elsewhere, with degrees conferred by the migrating university. Notably, the relaxation period was prolonged by three months as of November 22, 2023.



These significant measures were communicated by the government in response to an inquiry by Lok Sabha member N. K. Premachandran, representing the Kollam Lok Sabha constituency. The initiatives underscore the collective efforts of the Government and NMC in aiding and facilitating the academic progression of repatriated Indian medical students affected by the Ukraine Conflict.
