The State Government is understood to have decided to accommodate around 100 more doctors for admission in Post Graduation under its service in scheme. Earlier, the Government had given this benefit of bonus marks to only 80 doctors working in rural health centres of the State. After accommodating around 100 more doctors, about 200 will remain to receive bonus marks for PG admission.

Medical officers had even told the Government that they would ready to serve rural health centres as Community Health Centre and Primary Health Centre without getting money addition to their salary, but they should be given bonus marks under the in service quota.

However, some medical officers still doubt whether they can get admission in any Government or private medical colleges if those students who have already taken admission in PG courses go to court. Reason, the medical education will have to revise the admission list. It is not yet confirmed when the Government will issue second list of in service doctors for PG admission, but medical officers think it will be issued most probably end of this month.

According to information, the Madhya Pradesh Medical Officers Association (MPMOA) has been demanding bonus marks to all those MBBS doctors working in rural health centres for the last some years and wanting bonus marks to do Post Graduation under the Government’s in service scheme.

Senior medical officer working for the last many years, said the medical officers association did not only come on road to get justice rather had fought legal battle and even won it. Then the senior health officers agreed to give benefit to give benefit of bonus marks under in service quota.

Dr Devendra Goswami, State President, Madhya Pradesh Medical Officers Association said the association had found battle on road and court. Later, the Government agreed for some more MBBS doctors serving rural health centres for admission in PG courses under its in service quota. He said that some students, who had already taken admission in PG courses, might go to court when their admission would be cancelled, he said.
