Rs 15 lakh fine for medicos who leave their postgraduate course midway

Friday, April 21, 2017

Patna: The state government has decided that medicos who leave their postgraduate medical course midway would have to pay Rs 15 lakh fine and also return the stipend money they received. Almost 50% PG medical seats, especially in non-clinical courses, remain vacant in the state.

“Medicos opt for clinical subjects because these help them earn more money. In the process, non-clinical and para-clinical courses are left with no student,” said Bettiah Medical College principal Dr Rajeev Ranjan, who was among those who had taken up the issue of PG vacancy with the state government.

The government has also decided that medicos who have completed their postgraduate medical course are bound to serve in the state for three years, failing which they will have to pay Rs 25 lakh fine along with the total stipend they received from the government during the course period, reports ToI.
