Regarding the FMG Examination/NExT, the NMC has synchronized the time limit for appearing in alignment with regulations applicable to Indian students. It mandates that FMGs must complete their internship in India within 10 years of their enrollment in foreign medical institutions.



Discussing the allocation of internships for FMGs in Indian institutes, the NMC reaffirmed previous guidelines. Old colleges with students enrolled in the Comprehensive Rotatory Medical Internship (CRMI) program are allocated 7.5% of permitted MBBS seats. New medical colleges, where students aren't enrolled in CRMI, are granted a 100% internship quota.



Furthermore, the NMC emphasized continuity in FMGs' compulsory rotating medical internships, necessitating that they continue this phase at the same institute or college where they undertake their clinical clerkship. This ensures consistency and coherence in their educational journey within the medical field.
