Govt doctors in UP to serve in native departments for 10 years

Failing to comply will lead to a payment of Rs 1 crore as compensation

Government doctors in Uttar Pradesh completing postgraduate courses will have to give their services in the department for 10 years or pay a compensation of Rs 1 crore, according to an official. 

The order, issued recently, reiterated an earlier one issued on April 3, 2017. It said had been cases of some doctors completing the PG course and seeking a no-objection certificate (NOC) for doing senior residentship, which would not be allowed and they had to return to their native departments. 

According to the earlier order, the PMHS (provincial medical and health services) doctors opting for postgraduation get additional marks, especially for serving in rural areas. 

“On completion of the course, it’s mandatory for them to serve in the government department continuously for 10 years,” Additional Chief Secretary (Health) Amit Mohan Prasad said in a statement recently.

He added that those leaving the PG course midway would be debarred from seeking admission for three years.
