A hike will be implemented at a total of nine institutes including seven GMCs and two GDCs in the state.

Earlier, this year the State Government had issued an order to increase the stipend provided to the Interns during their internship in various GMC, GDC in Jammu and Kashmir.

Not just for the Government medical college students or the interns but stipend parity had been a long-standing demand of MBBS interns practising at different private medical colleges in the country.  It had been repeatedly been alleged that the interns at private medical colleges were indeed treated slaves and not even paid enough stipend to enable them to meet their basic needs.

In view of the above, the Medical Council Of India Board of Governors (MCI BOG) had decided that private medical colleges will also have to pay a stipend to its MBBS interns just like their government counterparts.
