Surrender NOC and activate old TNNMC Registration

 Surrender NOC and activate old TNNMC Registration

– Procedures simply explained

Lot of nurses registered in Tamil Nadu have migrated to other states. So many of them want to return and work in Tamil Nadu.  But they cannot do that reasons being they don’t know how to take back their old TNNMC Registration Certificate.  This article will explain how to revive your old Tamil Nadu Nursing Council Registration.

It is true that while transferring Nursing Registration from one state to another NOC is involved and you have to obtain NOC from your present Nursing Council and surrender it to TNNMC.  There is no uniform rules for Nursing Councils in India, most of them have their own set rules. So it is essential to know the procedures first and apply accordingly. After surrendering the NOC to TNNMC, you can take back your TNNMC Registration Certificate. 

Since nursing registration transfers are done on reciprocal basis, in between these nursing councils they follow same reciprocal rules. For example, the KSNC registered nurses can apply for NOC directly to KSNC by paying their NOC Fees and surrendering the Regn Certificate.  KSNC will send the NOC by registered post to TNNMC and another copy to the candidate also by post. Whereas the TNNMC registered nurses can also apply for NOC to TNNMC by surrendering their certificate and paying NOC Fees directly to TNNMC. Only difference is TNNMC will give a copy directly to the candidate’s hand, and the original by Registered post to KSNC.  The procedure is almost same. However it is futile to think all nursing councils are reciprocally fair to others.

To issue NOC to DNC/UPNMC/HNNMC –Tamil Nadu Nursing Council demand NOC Request letter/Clarification Letter from TNNMC registered nurses, so it is fair to think registered nurses from DNC, UPNMC, HNNMC will have to obtain NOC Request letter from TNNMC and submit to above nursing councils then only they will get NOC.

However, if nurses want to cancel their reciprocal registration and return to work in the state they studied or in the state their parent nursing council is situated, they can do so by cancelling the registration, surrender the Registration Certificate and obtain No Objection Certificate in favour of their Parent Nursing Council. This NOC they have to surrender to TNNMC. And in this article this procedure is explained in detail.
