The National Medical Commission Act, 2019 is a significant reform brought in the field of medical education, and the Act received its assent from the President on 8th August 2019 and it came into force on 25th September 2020. The main purpose of the Act was to bring in positive changes in the field of medical sciences as well as in the medical education system in order to enhance the quality of medical studies and make it affordable to more students. 

The legislation regulating before NMC Act 2019 was the Medical Council of India which was repealed and replaced by the NMC Act as per the recommendations and suggestions made by the NITI Aayog. There were many points lacking in the Indian Medical Act and even with the operation of the body of the Medical Council of India. There were increasing complaints against the regulating body alleging corruption charges and the functioning of the body was not completely transparent and seemed fishy to many. The quality of medical studies, infrastructure, institutions, and research was also deteriorating. The Medical Council of India was composed of only doctors and other members like health experts, social scientists, and health economists.
