The minister said incentives will be provided to the doctors to retain them in the state.
He said there would be no shortage of doctors after two years as the state would produce about 1,500 doctors every year from various medical colleges.
Das also informed that new medical colleges would soon come up in Talcher, Puri and Sundergarh.
Efforts are on to make Odisha a surplus state in the field of doctors, he said.
Recently, the minister had asked the chief district medical officers to collect suggestions from the people on the preparation of the health policy. – India TV
