SC hears MCI, State Medical Council on incentive marks weightage

The Medical Council of India and the state government of Rajasthan made their submissions to the Supreme Court regarding the incentive marks awarded to in-service doctors for PG admissions, on Monday

The  Supreme Court (SC) on Monday heard submissions. The court was hearing a plea by non-service MBBS candidates who have objected to these incentive marks ,after they lost out to in-service doctors in the PG admission merit list.

The MCI informed the court about its Regulation 9, which reads: “In determining the merit of candidates who are in the service of government or a public authority, weightage in marks may be given by the government/competent authority as an incentive @ 10% of the marks obtained for each year of service in specified remote or difficult areas of the state up to the maximum of 30% of the marks obtained in NEET.”

The court was also informed by the State Government’s Counsel, about the ongoing PG counselling, which includes allotment of specialties to candidates as per the merit list prepared, following the Rajasthan High Court order, released on April 7 ..

The state government  after having finished  counselling, has  issued a list of allotted PG seats along with specialties .

The non-service candidates said that though the SC had allowed the counselling process to continue, it was subject to the final order of the court.

A list of 563 candidates with allotted specialties has been issued by the state government. However, the list also mentions that allotments are subject to the decision of SC in the SLP, filed by Dr Amit Bagra and other doctors against the state of Rajasthan.

“The court will hear us on Tuesday. Since the SC has directed the state government to continue with the counselling, the state government has issued an allotment list for courses. But, the court may cancel the list depending on the judgment in the case,” Dr Bagra said.

Dr Jitendra Bagaria, an in-service doctor, who is spearheading the legal battle told the TOI, “Out of the 563 candidates who secured specialties as per their choice during counselling, non-service candidates received 153 of them and in-service 410. Non-service candidates too have participated in the process of counselling.”

  1. The in service candidate getting Pg seat on this basis should serve post Pg for three years in rural area.

  2. i am an indian citizen and i am agree with incentive marks given to the in service doctors.because they have spent 3year of their life in serviving the rural patient.providing service in remote/rural area is important than securing high marks in neet pg.regarding the incentive marks. in service doctors deserving for that.and mind it every in service doctor will provide service in government hospitals after pg as well.but in case of non service doctors mostly nobody shall join the govt.hospitals.they will join the private hospitals in high package.so govt. should faver the in service doctor.otherwise nobody will take interest in remote area.and will be big problum for upcoming time.
