Punjab takes steps to encourage doctors to work in rural areas

In a bid to encourage government doctors to work in rural areas, the Punjab government today revised the eligibility guidelines for admission in state-run medical colleges to pursue post graduation. According to the policy, 60 per cent PG seats will be reserved for Punjab Civil Medical Services (PCMS) doctors who have completed three years of rural service. Every year's additional service beyond three years would fetch one extra mark, a spokesman said. The revised guidelines would be implemented with effect from November 1, 2010. Rural service for this purpose means service at health institutions situated beyond 15 km of the notified municipal areas. The 15-km limit has been fixed for all the municipal towns irrespective of their size and the category of municipal committee, the spokesman said.
