The National Medical Commission (NMC) will constitute a committee on the issue of live demonstration of medical surgeries and discuss with stakeholders the way forward on the subject, noted a senior health official.

Last month, the Supreme Court issued notice to the Centre and the NMC in a plea challenging the live demonstration of surgeries especially at medical conferences. The PIL was heard by a bench comprising CJI D.Y. Chandrachud, Justice J.B. Pardiwala, and Justice Manoj Misra.

The petitioners had sought directions for the NMC to appoint a committee that will regularly monitor live surgery broadcasts and establish comprehensive guidelines. The Supreme Court issued a notice, returnable in three weeks.
