Going abroad? First serve the country, doctors told
Kolkata: The Indian government plans to bring a regulation to ensure doctors have a compulsory stint in the country especially in the rural sector, Minister of State for Health Sudip Bandopadhyay Monday said.
"The government is spending crores of rupees for making doctors and specialists, but after passing out most of them go abroad. We are planning to bring in a regulation/declaration which will make sure that the doctors serve in their state/country for a specific period," said Bandopadhyay.
He said the government was planning to increase the number of medical seats in order to produce more doctors.
"We will increase the number of seats in order to generate more doctors so that there are enough doctors to serve in the rural belt. West Bengal is also planning to increase the number of MBBS and post graduate seats every year," he said.
West Bengal Minister of State for Health Chandrima Bhattacharjee said the private health care institutions should assist the state government in order to revamp the rural health care sector.
