10 years service in Govt hospitals or pay fine of Rs 1 crore, UP Govt clarifies on it

Lucknow, 12 December: The Uttar Pradesh government has given clarification on the news of depositing an amount of Rs one crore for not doing a government job for ten years after studying post graduation in medicine from state government medical institutions.

The state’s Additional Chief Secretary, Medical and Health Amit Mohan Prasad has clarified that it is not new but a three-year-old Government Order (GO).

He said that misinformation is being spread on various social media platforms that doctors who do PG, after that they will have to work in government institutions for ten years otherwise they will have to deposit a sum of Rs 1 crore. He said that this is not a new matter.

This GO was issued only on April 03 2017. There has already been this arrangement, because those who are physicians of PMS are given special marks for doing post graduation. They get additional marks for working in rural areas for three years. Based on this, they are easily enrolled in PG courses.

He said that is why this condition has been laid long ago that when they return after doing post graduation then they should serve the public again. Continue your service in government department for at least ten years. This system is very old, it is not new news.

In fact, the government has made a provision in NEET exemption to meet the shortage of specialist doctors in hospitals. Most doctors avoid taking government jobs in the state after completing their studies. In view of this, this GO was issued in 2017.

MBBS Physician doing one year job in government hospitals of rural area is given a relaxation of 10 marks in NEET PG entrance examination. Two years service practitioners are given a relaxation of 20 and three years up to 30 numbers. These physicians can take admission for diploma courses with post graduation.
