In an attempt to address the scarcity of doctors in the rural areas of Maharashtra, the State Government has decided to make bond service for MBBS doctors mandatory.
With this, the doctors in the state will no longer be allowed to get rid of their bond service duties for one year by paying an amount of Rs 10 lakh as penalty.
This new rule will be applicable for medical and dental colleges who will join MBBS/BDS courses from this academic year. Besides, students availing reservation benefits and fee concession in self-aided private institutes will also be liable to serve mandatory one-year bond service in the interior areas of Maharashtra, reports TOI.
