50 percent reservation in PG seats for MBBS who serve in remote areas: IMC Amendment Bill 2016

50 percent reservation in PG seats for MBBS who serve in remote areas: IMC Amendment Bill 2016

New Delhi: To address the acute shortage of medical practitioners in remote areas of the country, the government is soon going to offer a substantial benefit in the postgraduate courses for all those who serve in remote/rural areas.

In the draft of Indian Medical Council (Amendment) Bill, 2016 that has been recently issued by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the government has proposed  50% reservation of seats for post graduate courses in government colleges for those who have served at least three years in government healthcare institutions in remote and difficult areas.

Through the amendment bill , the ministry is seeking to insert a new section to the section 20B of the act, stating

Upto 50% of the seats in Post Graduate Courses in Government Colleges may be reserved by the appropriate State Governments/UTs for Medical Officers in the Government services, who have served for at least three years in remote and difficult areas. After acquiring the PG Degree, the Medical Officers may further be required to serve for a period up to three years in remote and/or difficult areas by the State Governments/UTs concerned. Admissions to this quota would strictly be on the basis of NEXT merit list only.

Ministry of health has issued the draft amendment bill and is inviting suggestions/feedback in respect of the draft Bill. Suggestions may be furnished to mepsection-mohfw@gov.in by 06.01.2017.

Do you think, there should be a 50 percent reservation in PG seats for MBBS who serve in remote areas?

  1. Why shouldn\’t be this compulsion applicable only for reserved category candidates in PG seats.If they do not agree why to give them advantage of reservation.In fact in pre medical test also reservation should only be given to those who agree to serve in remote/rural areas whichever is the caste

    injustice for general candidates. country may get poor quality of doctors.

  6. category and caste have nothing to do with such type reservation. This reservation is not on caste basis. seats are reserved here for the doctors serving the people in rural area inspite of memorising genes and dna, mechanism of anti cancer drugs and theories of rare diseases, memorising the stuffs already written in books.
