Masood has been found guilty of cheating, forgery and corruption in the case.
The Rajya Sabha MP was taken to Tihar jail after the court pronounced its verdict.
Now Masood will have to lose his Rajya Sabha seat.
"Masood has been held guilty of nominating undeserving candidates to MBBS seats allocated to Tripura from the central pool. The fraud was carried out during Masood's tenure as MoS Health in 1990-91," reported CNN-IBN.
"The court has also found him guilty of conspiring with two others who have also been convicted," said the news channel.
