NEW DELHI: Delhi Medical Council has requested the National Medical Commission (NMC) to grant permission again to allow foreign medical graduates to undergo Compulsory Rotating Medical Internship (CRMI) in non-teaching hospitals. The council is apprehensive about providing internships even for FMGE candidates belonging to Delhi domicile.
