Lok Sabha is all set to finalize National Nursing and Midwifery Commission Bill 2020 in the monsoon session

The efforts made for the last two years can be given full shape in this monsoon session of the Parliament. Yes, we are talking about NNMC Bill 2020 which was proposed by Nirmala Sitaraman in Lok Sabha last year but could not be passed. In the session starting from July 18, total 24 bills will be presented, out of which two bills related to health services have also been included which are as follows:

National Nursing and Midwifery Commission Bill 2020
National Dental Commission Bill

The process of creating and implementing the National Nursing and Midwifery Commission by abolishing the Indian Nursing Council started with the draft bill in 2020 and public comments were also taken on it. This session of Parliament will try to pass the NNMC BIll so that the series which runs from 2021 can be completed. Many health-related bills were passed in the year 2020 and 2021, out of which only one NNMC bill remained, which will be presented now.

Many provisions have been kept in the National Nursing and Midwifery Commission Bill, which is going to happen for the first time in the history of India, in which it is important to abolish the National Nursing Council Act of 1947 and the formation of new boards and councils will start.

The monsoon session of Parliament will run from 18 July to 12 August 2022.
