By virtue of this Act, the Institute awards its own medical degrees and other academic distinctions. The degrees awarded by the Institute under this Act are recognised medical qualifications for the purpose of the Indian Medical Council Act and, notwithstanding anything contained therein, are deemed to be included in the first schedule of that Act, entitling the holders to the same privileges as those attached to the equivalent awards from other Universities of India.
