PIL challenges Haryana Rs 10 lakh bond policy for MBBS students: HC issues notice to govt
Haryana: Following the petition against a state policy regarding the bond service of MBBS students, the Punjab and Haryana High Court on Thursday has issued a notice to the Haryana government seeking its response within February 2021.
This came after one of the petitioners approached the High Court stating that the government must reconsider their newly introduced policy regarding the bond service system for the MBBS medicos. They also that the authorities should at least put on stay on the same if not quash the policy altogether.
The petition was submitted following a notification issued on November 6th by the Haryana government which introduced a new bond policy system for MBBS medicos.
According to the notification following the new bond service policy, the medical students who will secure admission in government medical colleges will need to execute an annual bond for rupees 10 lakh minus the fee at the start of every academic year. The candidates can pay the whole amount of the bond without recourse to the loan or the state government will help them in availing an education loan for the amount.
