Further, we found a tweet by the Press Information Bureau dated September 28, 2021, in which it was clarified that the viral public notice is fake and the NMC has not issued any such notice.

"A public notice allegedly issued by @NMC_IND claims that students who commenced studying in foreign medical institutions on or after 1/1/2019 need to get eligibility certificate under Indian Medical Council Act by 31/12/2021. #PIBFactCheck. @NMC_IND has NOT issued this notice," PIB tweeted.



The team also checked the Twitter handle of NMC. We found NMC had retweeted the PIB tweet.

Hence, the claim is false.
