NEET 2018: Center to review scrapping of PG Quota for Government Doctors

By: R Chandrakala on November 15, 2017

Apart from Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and Punjab has also urged the Central Government to grant more liberty to states to implement their medical education policy so that the hospitals that are run by States attract better medical talent. This meeting was convened by the Union Health Ministry in the month of October to discuss ways of strengthening health services in various states. State Health secretaries and officials from the Directorate General of Health Services and Medical Council of India were the invited dignitaries at the meeting.

Strong reaction favoring reservation for Government Doctors

Some states had expressed their strong opposition over the abolition of reservation for Government Doctors and said that they would be following their own method in implementation of State and National Programmes. They were also of the opinion that the Central Government cannot intervene in the medical policies of the States. The Union Health Secretary provided assurance that the Center would be considering their position and has asked the States to submit their respective demands in writing.

Few States were known to be following different quota and incentive marks with relation to PG Admissions for doctors who were serving in Government Hospitals. This was abolished by the MCI regulations while giving limited incentive marks and that too, to only those who were serving in Government Hospitals in the remote parts of the State. When the High Court also had upheld the position that the MCI had taken earlier this year, several states had raised their objections and government doctors also held protests, as it would be the end of the incentive that an MBBS Graduate would be getting at the time of joining Government Service. 

Enrollment for NEET Coaching starts early

In the meanwhile, NEET Coaching centers are being flooded by students from Grade 10 onwards registering for the next academic year at least 5-6 months early. Being only the month of November, Coaching Centers have already been flooded by queries for IIT JEE and NEET in comparison to the previous year. It is always obvious that Engineering and Medical Exams always have a huge demand from students. Enquiries on JEE Main and NEET seemed to have been seeing a 70% increase.

Students not only across Metro Cities, but all over the State as well have been posing a lot of questions as they are keen to crack IIT-JEE this year. A 30% rise in online queries for the JEE Main coaching is also being seen by the respective coaching centers. On account of the slowdown existing in the IT Sector, Engineering seems to be on a low and lost its sheen, therefore NEET being the sole medical entrance examination is seen to be getting huge demand from candidates also from the remotest of the locations.

Apart from this, it is also being expected that a huge number of students would sign up for competitive exams like KVPY as well, that gives candidates a good direction in the branch of pure sciences. As associated with NEET and over its ambiguity on being the sole medical entrance examination in the country, queries are being raised by the students on that too as well.
