  1. Very very welcoming move, at last the Jhola chap private medical colleges doctors would be screened!!!. It\’s now the truth will come out, it\’s not only the FMGs who are duffers, but also the private medical colleges products. Both should be screened.

  2. It’s not that only private clg have jhola chap doctors!!!!! Both private nd gov students giving the standard professional exams every year !!! I think their is no need for exit exam???

  3. At last we will have quality doctors.

  4. EXIT exam is a must to check the quality of doctors. Doctors of private medical colleges, the FMGs from erstwhile Soviet countries, China etc should be screened putting them all to sit for the same licensing exam. For the health of we all all Indians it is certainly a good move.

  5. ALL exam and ridcules fees for MBBS and PG to the Medicine to be controlled in deemed and other universities and govt. medical collages instead of looting by all to the students. Why after MBBS exam an exit exam to put more troubles to the students- instead MBBS final year to be made as EXIT exam and they are eligible for PG. Govt. should look into it and control the looters as every year the fees increase for the education by few as per the commission of kick back they get from the Medical college owners in Deemed University and others
