Vacant MCh seats: Gujarat now offers waiver of Rs 50 lakh bond, MCC issues notice

Ahmedabad: Unable to find any takers, the Gujarat government has now given an additional incentive in the form of bond removal, to NEET SS candidates; who take admission in 2 MCh courses- Paediatric Surgery and Cardiothoracic Vascular Surgery. The MCC issued a notice to this effect for the information of the candidates

Before the elimination of bond clause for these super speciality courses, the state had the mandatory condition of Rs 50 lakh Compulsory Service Bonds.

Now, citing no takers for the said courses since the condition was introduced 5 years ago, the state has issued a Government Resolution (GR) regarding the bond removal on September 9th 2019.

The confirmation to this effect was made via a recent notice uploaded on the official website of the Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) which is conducting the counselling for NEET SS 2019 for admission to DM, MCh and DNB SS courses this academic year.

The notification clearly states;

It is for the information to all candidates participating in the NEET Super Speciality Counselling 2019 as per the notification of Govt. of Gujarat dated 09/09/2019, the bond has been removed from the Super Speciality courses in the subject of pediatric surgery and cardio-thoracic and vascular surgery in Govt. Medical colleges of Gujarat state.

The GR pointed out that the students were not taking admission to MCh Paediatric Surgery and MCh Cardiothoracic Vascular Surgery due to various technological developments and the seats are lying vacant which is negatively impacting the medical services being offered by the state.

“The seats in super speciality paediatric and cardiothoracic vascular surgery courses are lying vacant for the last few years as students are not taking admission.

Citing one of the possible reasons for the decline in the field of Pediatric surgery, the government also noted that with the advanced 3D and 4D sonography tests, such impairments are detected during examinations before birth where such pregnancies are aborted under rules. Thus, over a period of time, congenital impairments are on a decline and hence decline in scope of pediatric surgery as well

Similarly, due to technological advancements in cardiology services, number of cardiothoracic vascular surgeries in the state have also gone down.

Pointing out the above reasons, the GR stated:

“If students do not take admission in these super speciality courses, patients cannot be offered medical services. …This will have a negative impact…

…Due to these reasons, it is the least priority of students nowadays to take admission in cardiothoracic vascular surgeries and paediatric surgeries. This is a reason, the state government was considering doing away with the bond in these two super speciality courses.

  1. I can not understand why all medical colleges are eagerly willing to fillup the vacant seats in Mch ctvs & pead surgery by below standard students, then what is the uses of taking neetss exam?? Instead of taking neetss exam,admit and fillup the seats by first come & first admission basis.
