Students graduating from government medical colleges in Uttar Pradesh with an MBBS degree will have to work in rural areas for two years unless they opt for higher studies, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Monday. Those pursuing MD and MS will have to work in the villages for a year, he added.
“The doctors will be made to fill up bonds. Those who did MD and MS will also work for one year in rural areas and no one will be allowed to influence the government for internship,” the Chief Minister, who was speaking on the occasion of the first anniversary of the Ayushman Bharat Diwas, was quoted as saying by PTI.
On the success of the Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana, Adityanath said while approximately 1.18 crore families have benefited, 8.45 lakh families have benefited through the CM Jan Arogya Yojana scheme and golden cards have been distributed to 1.89 lakh people.
“We had to face several challenges when we launched this scheme around a year back. There was a dire need to make the benefits of this scheme reach the beneficiaries in a time-bound manner. We chalked out such a strategy that could help in making this scheme reach the citizens,” he said. – Indian Express
