Bihar to fine PG medicos who leave courses mid-way
Patna,(BiharTimes): The state cabinet on Wednesday decided to impose fine of Rs 15 lakh on the post graduate students of the medical colleges if they quit their courses mid-way. On the other hand the PG passouts would be fined Rs 25 lakh if they do not serve in the state for at least three years. Besides, in both the cases, they will have to return the stipend paid to them by the state government.
According to principal secretary (cabinet secretariat) Brijesh Mehrotra every PG medical student will be required to sign a bond at the time of admission to ensure the compliance of the state cabinet decision.
Approximately 50 per cent of Bihar’s 474 PG medical seats remain vacant in every session as the students either change their stream or shift to another college.
Every PG student is paid Rs 25,000 per month as stipend by the state government.
