Bond service after MBBS not necessary for PG admissions: Bom
MBBS students in government medical colleges (GMCs) will be eligible for admissions to post graduate (MD/MS) courses without completing the one-year bond service, at least for the next three years starting 2019-20.

The Bombay high court has ordered that students who have been admitted to MBBS course up to October 12, 2017, can seek admission to PG courses without fulfilling the requirement of one-year compulsory bond after MBBS course. They will complete their bond service after the PG course.

The HC has clarified that students who have taken admission to MBBS course after October 2017 would have to complete their bond service before seeking admissions to PG. However, such candidates will apply for PG only after completion of their four-year MBBS course, which is not before 2021-22. So, effectively, bond service after MBBS will not be a necessary clause till then.

“We received the court orders and we are considering students for counselling round without insisting upon completion of one-year bond after their MBBS. Instead, we will take a written commitment from these students that they will complete their bond service after PG course. They will do two years of bond service after PG. One year on account of bond for PG course and one year for MBBS,” said Dr Tatyarao Lahane, director of Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER).
