1yr Rural Service for PG rule already facing controversies

   HYDERABAD: The new Act making one-year rural service compulsory for new MBBS doctors is all set to snowball into a major controversy as chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy has already signed an agreement with private medical colleges, exempting management quota students from rural stint. Representatives of private medical colleges who hold 60% stake in the medical education sector in Andhra Pradesh say since management quota candidates do not get any government aid unlike merit students, it is unfair to force them to do a year's rural stint. But the consensual agreement signed with the state government two months ago is likely to be overridden as the Centre is firm on fresh medical graduates across all categories doing a rural stint. Currently, there is one doctor for every 1,950 people, but the ratio gets worse in rural areas as 75% to 80% of hospitals are concentrated in urban areas, whereas 70% of the population live in rural areas. The government might

Government to make 1yr rural service compulsory for appearing in PG entrance

New Delhi: MBBS doctors aspiring to pursue post-graduation will now have to compulsorily undertake a one-year rural posting before becomming eligible for such a course. In a major decision aimed at improving rural healthcare in India, the Government has decided to make it mandatory for all MBBS doctors to undergo one year rural posting to sit for post-graduation entrance examination. Highly placed sources in the Health Ministry told PTI that Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad cleared a proposal in this regard and the Medical Council of India (MCI) is in the process of issuing a notification. The decision will be applicable from the next academic session (2014-15) and all MBBS graduates seeking a post- graduate degree in medicine or surgery would have to work for one year in a village before they can take the PG entrance examination. The decision came after two years of deliberations, as the earlier proposal of increasing the duration of the MBBS course to include a rural

State Govt responsible for NO AIIMS in WB

KOLKATA, 8 JUNE: The conflict between the state and the Centre came to the fore when Union minister for health and family welfare, Mr Ghulam Nabi Azad, today squarely held the previous and present state governments responsible for the All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) not coming up in the state. “While the Uttar Pradesh government has sanctioned land in Rae Bareily for AIIMS, the West Bengal government is yet to do so," the minister said while addressing a Press conference at the Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) office here today. Mr Azad said though five years have passed since land was identified in Raiganj, the state government is yet to give its nod. He said that things did not change even after the Trinamul government came to power. "The previous government in Uttar Pradesh too did not sanction land, but the present dispensation did it," he said, drawing a parallel. Mr Azad said it is unfortunate that the West Bengal government is not realising that
