    If any state govt desires, they “can recognise” these IGNOU degrees by suitably amending their respective State Medical Council act (Then the degree will be valid in that state only for the purpose of Medical practice)
    But still they will not be recognised for working in Medical Colleges.

    sounds good to hear.
    PG Diploma in Anaesthesia by IGNOU-
    Candidates after passing should have at least similar skills if not better than Candidates having MCI recognised Diploma from institutions and should be recognised by MCI
    Candidates should be paid equivalent stipend as being paid by institution as per different State Government or more..
    In many institution they work under supervision of Faculty for some years in difficult cases what would be status in freelancing..
    N.B.E. does not allow PG diploma not recognised by MCI to take admission as secondary candidates as far as my knowledge goes.
    Can Dr. M.C.Gupta be requested to throw some light on these 2 points too that what would be medico-legal status


    from which year the course will start

    Govt. does not recognize the IGNOU Degree and Diplomas, at least in Kerala. So what is the point in doing these unrecognized Courses. Before starting the courses IGNOU & the Govt. must see that these degrees and diplomas are recognized by Universities, MCI, State Govt.s and others.
