Doctors strike Tamilnadu

COIMBATORE: Continuing with the demand to reinstate 50% reservation for post-graduate admissionsgovernment doctors said they will go on a mass casual leave on Monday. Only the emergency, casualty and trauma doctors will be in attendance, said a press statement from the  Tamil Nadu Government Doctors Association.As a result, more than 100 government doctors in the district are likely to be on leave on Monday. "All doctors in charge of elective surgeries, specialties and procedures will not be working on Monday," said president of the Coimbatore chapter of TNGDA N Ravishankar.However, since we do not want the patients to suffer, doctors in emergency, trauma and casualty wards will report to duty," he said. "We will also make sure that at least one doctor is present at the rural primary health care centres," he said.about 200 government doctors protested in front of the Coimbatore Medical College Hospital's casualty ward on Saturday morning against removal of reservation for government doctors for post-graduate courses. "The quota was introduced by the government many years ago in a bid to encourage young doctors take up government postings in rural areas. More than a decade ago, no doctor wanted to work in rural areas and would refuse government jobs," said Ravishankar. "If the reservation is removed, again no doctor would agree to work in a primary health centre or a hospital outside the urban areas. They would opt for private hospitals and colleges," he said.

The doctors feel the new ruling is unfair on medical graduates currently posted in rural areas, who are likely to apply for post-graduate studies in the next couple of years. "Many of them have taken up postings in rural areas, where even preparing for the NEET exam is difficult. Now to tell them that they have no reservation or preference is unfair," said a doctor.

Tamil Nadu Seeks Prime Minister Intervention On Medical Admissions

Chennai: Tamil Nadu Government today sought Prime Minister Narendra Modi's intervention to get the assent of President for two State Bills to ensure continuation of present system of admission to medical courses in the state. "This assent would enable the state to continue its existing fair and transparent system of admission to medical and dental colleges in the state", Chief Minister K Palaniswami said in a letter to Modi. The of tamilnadu had passed the Tamil Nadu Admissions to Post Graduate Courses in Medicine and Dentistry Bill, 2017 and Tamil Nadu Admissions to MBBS and BDS Courses Bill, 2017, apparently aimed at bypassing the National Eligibility-cum-Entrance Test.

Palaniswami said as per the existing practice in the state, a total of 50 per cent of state quota seats were allocated to doctors in government service.

However, the NEET prospectus indicated that admission would be undertaken by the designated authorities using NEET marks as per applicable regulations

Hepatology seats DM

Incentive mark should not be granted

The Supreme Court on Wednesday agreed to hear the plea of postgraduate medical courses’ aspirants from Rajasthan who have challenged the State’s preference for graduates who have worked in rural and difficult areas during their MBBS course.
The State allows 10% incentive marks to in-service MBBS doctors who have served in remote areas in National Eligibility-cum Entrance Test (NEET) 2017 for admission to PG courses.
A Bench led by Chief Justice of India J.S. Khehar heard preliminary submissions made by advocate Jasmeet Singh against the State government’s award of incentives to students who have worked in rural and difficult terrains during their MBBS years and listed the matter for detailed hearing on Thursday.
Their petition contended that such incentive was firstly not notified by the Rajasthan government prior to commencement of the selection procedure. It argued that the process of selection for the NEET 2017 began in September 2016 whereas the State government notification came on March 20 this year.
Secondly, the State had not notified any such rural or difficult areas.
Thirdly, it is not mandatory (and is only discretionary) as per the Medical Council of India Postgraduate Medical Education Regulations to grant such incentives.
