The students, who are pursuing MBBS at Nepal’s Janaki Devi Medical college affiliated to the Tribhuvan University, were to appear for their annual examination on December 20 last year. However, they were not allowed to appear in the exams citing none of them had cleared an entrance conducted by the Institute of Medicine.

Kathmandu: Nepal’s Supreme Court has ordered a prominent university to allow 32 Indian students pursuing MBBS course in one of its affiliated medical colleges to appear in their annual examinations, months after they were debarred for not passing an entrance conducted by the institution’s Institute of Medicine.

According to a recent PTI report quoting the the Himalayan Times, the apex court in its order May 17 ordered the Tribhuvan University to allow the 32 Indian MBBS students from appearing in their annual examinations, observing that they had cleared the Indian government-conducted National Eligibility cum Entrance Test (NEET), which meant that they had fulfilled the criterion set by Nepal Medical Council under the MBBS programme.
