The Supreme Court sought a response from the National Medical Commission on petitions by foreign students at eight Rajasthan medical colleges and Ram Manohar Lohia Institute, Delhi, seeking stipends for internships like their Indian counterparts. A bench of Justices B R Gavai and K V Vishwanathan issued the notice. Advocate Tanvi Dubey argued that non-payment violates their fundamental rights, noting other colleges pay stipends to foreign graduates. The petitioners, undergoing internships in Rajasthan, claim they were misled into unpaid internships despite NMC regulations mandating stipend parity with Indian graduates. They face significant expenses, including accommodation and travel, for which they were unprepared.
