  1. Does such bonds were applied to other high quality professionals?
    There is no such deficiency of doctors as opposed by governments. They are just hiding their deficiency of infrastructure, other, poor salary structure, poor living condition, poor quality government schools for education of their child. They are making doctors handicap by lacking even basic infrastructure needed.
    They are getting away from their responsibility. Once a Doctor work in these hospitals he forgets all his quality and just become a clerk and pharmacist to see what medication they have to purchase, taking meetings updating their register, understanding complex official language etc.
    Can this government tell me that how many CHCs are well equipped according to norms?
    How many doctor s àre given good quality residence?
    Government has taken up pension scheme? Does this was done for attracting or repulsing government employees?
    Government does not give permanent jobs, moreovere it gives contract job and want to give minimum salary.

    More important is to improve the infrastructure and working conditions of workplace especially for doctors

  3. First , abolish such stupid and absurd bonds.They are not bonded laborers. You cannot force anybody to work for you.Is there similar bond for IIT and IIM Graduates? They have got admission due to their hard work and merit and not charity done by the Government.
