Ranchi: The Jharkhand government is framing new admission rules for MBBS courses under which aspiring medicos will have to sign an agreement to serve the State for at least three years after acquiring the medical degree.

Those willing to leave the State without serving the stipulated period will have to pay Rs 3 lakh as fine.

The new norms will become operational from the current academic session and would apply for all students who take admissions into the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS), Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College and Hospital (MGMMCH), Jamshedpur, and Patliputra Medical College and Hospital (PMCH), Dhanbad.

As per the recently approved guidelines of the Medical Council of India, these medical colleges will together enroll 250 students in different courses of MBBS. Of the total, 45 students will be from the Central quota, whose admissions are taken on the basis of merit list prepared by the Central Board for Secondary Education (CBSE). 

“This rule, however, would not apply on those taking admissions under the central quota,” Jharkhand Health Secretary K Vidyasagar said.

The State government is learnt to have proposed conditional service clause in the admission in keeping with serious shortage of medical professionals.

The State at present requires around 3,500 doctors, but it has less than 2,000 doctors, including 400 medical professionals working on contract.
