The National Medical Commission (NMC) has issued a stern warning to medical colleges across the country regarding the accommodation policies for postgraduate students.

While colleges are required to provide suitable residential facilities to their PG students, the NMC emphasised that students cannot be compelled to stay in the hostels.

"As per the regulation 5.6 of the Post Graduate Medical Education Regulation (PGMER), 2023, it will be mandatory for the college to provide appropriate residential accommodation to postgraduate students. However, it will not be mandatory for the postgraduate students to

stay in the hostel," read the official notification.

The warning comes in response to numerous complaints from students regarding the exorbitant fees levied by colleges for hostel accommodation.

"However, numbers of complaints have been received from PG students alleging that the medical colleges/institutions are compelling them to stay in the hostel offered by the medical colleges/ institutions and hefty amount is being charged on this account," states the notification.

It says that such practices violate Regulation 5.6 of the Post Graduate Medical Education Regulation (PGMER), 2023.
