Talks are going on with MBBS students, the issue


DW BUREAU / cHANDIGARH Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal said that doubts of medical students regarding bond policy are being cleared. Senior officers are holding continuous talks with doctors and medical students and he is hopeful that the issue would likely to be resolved soon said Sh. Manohar Lal while interacting with media representatives at Haryana Bhavan in New Delhi today. Responding to a question regarding the ongoing agitation of medical students, the Chief Minister said that many things related to the bond policy were explained to the students on Friday. Senior officers and administrative officers of medical education are holding regular talks with these students. He clarified that the bond policy does not mean to harass the family of any doctor or poor family. This bond policy will apply only to a person who wishes to join the private sector instead of the government, said the Chief Minister. He said that out of the total bond amount of Rs. 40 lakh, Rs 3.5 lakh which the MBBS student has paid in the 4 years will be excluded from that amount. Interest is also not being charged from them. The transaction in this regard after the completion of the degree will be done only with the bank concerned, said Sh. Manohar Lal. The Chief Minister said that if a private practitioner wishes to repay early, he can do the same anytime as there is no set time limit for the same. He said that this bond policy has been implemented to encourage MBBS students for choosing government service to discharge their duties after completing their medical studies in government medical colleges. Chief Minister Manohar Lal said that the health check-up of every citizen of the state must be done at least once a year. A scheme has been formulated for this. President of India, Smt. Droupadi Murmu will formally launch this unique scheme called Mukhyamantri Parivar Swasthya Parikshan scheme during her visit to Kurukshetra on November 29, said Manohar Lal while interacting with media persons at Haryana Bhavan in Delhi on Saturday. The Chief Minister said that a health check-up of every citizen must be done once a year to ensure timely diagnosis of any health ailment and the person can also get timely treatment. He said that this scheme in Haryana is also unique in itself and has not yet been implemented in any other State in the country. Speaking about the implementation of the said scheme, the Chief Minister said that in the first phase, the State Government will start this scheme from Antyodaya families having annual incomes up to Rs 1.80 lakh. In the first phase, the health checkup of the members of such families will be done and after that, in the next phase, all the other sections will be covered by making this scheme universal. Responding to a question about the pre-Budget meeting held with the Union Finance Minister, the Chief Minister lauded Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman for continuing the old practice of taking suggestions from the Finance Ministers of all the states before the budget like every year.
