Union Health Minister of India Anbumani Ramadoss has said that Union Government of India has taken a unilateral decision to recognise postgraduate degrees in medicine obtained from foreign institutes in UK, USA, Canada and New Zealand. This would mean that Indian doctors who have obtained their postgraduate qualifications from these countries would be able to legally practice in India as a specialist in their areas of post graduate qualification.

This is a welcome move from Indian government as the demand for the recognition of such qualifications has been a long standing demand of Indian medical diaspora.

The Health Minister clarified that this decision doesn't come under the purview of Indian Medical Council (IMC). However he indicated that the decision would be informed to IMC.

"In fact this unilateral decision of the union government to recognize foreign degrees in medicine would help thousand of Indian doctors in UK who are out of job because of recent changes in the recruitment of foreign doctors," Ramdoss said. Anbumani Ramadoss is the Cabinet Minister in India in Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. He was elected to the Parliament as a member of the Rajya Sabha in 2004.
