Lackadaisical approach of J&K government to issue centre’s directions in UT

In an attempt to curb the plan of anti-national elements present in Jammu and Kashmir, an order was issued by National Medical Commission (NMC) and Dental Council of India (DCI) have issued an order on April 28. DCI and NMC have advised all concerned not to travel to Pakistan for pursuing Medical/Dental Education.

The order was issued by NMC and DCI on April 28, but allegedly due to the lackadaisical approach of J&K administration order was issued in Union Territory six days later. Although the order was issued on April 28, the J&K government issued directions in this regard on May 3, as per Early Times.

According to order issued by Secretary NMC and Secretary DCI, any Indian national/overseas citizen of India who intends to take admission in MBBS/BDS or equivalent medical/dental course in any medical/dental college of Pakistan shall not be eligible for appearing in FMGE/screening test or seeking employment in India on the basis of educational qualifications (in any subject) acquired in Pakistan except those who had joined Pakistan degree colleges/institutions before December 2018 or later after obtaining Security Clearance from MHA till date. Despite of the fact that this order was specially issued for the Union Territory because every year over many students from Kashmir Valley go for medical studies in Pakistan, administration showed its careless attitude in issuing order. It is pertinent to mention that in the year 2020, the National Investigation Agency (NIA) exposed the scam between students, Pakistan High Commission officials, and separatists of Kashmir Valley.

The J&K Police had recently unearthed a scam of selling MBBS seats of Pakistani colleges to fund terror.
