Gujarat govt curtails mandatory 3-year service in rural areas for new MBBS doctors

AIR PIC
In Gujarat, state government has curtailed mandatory three-year service in rural areas for new MBBS doctors to one year but raised the penalty amount to 20 lakh from 5 lakh rupees for refusing to serve in villages for the period. 

The state government announced this today. Deputy Chief Minister Nitin Patel said that this change in rule will apply to students taking admission in MBBS course from this year in government medical colleges. 

However, the norm will not be applicable to those taking admission in self-financed colleges or who have gained entry through all India quota. Gujarat currently has 5,360 MBBS seats, including those in self-financed colleges.
