All depends on what you want to do after ur pg... if you are only willing to work in a medical college as a teacher, then all these are applicable.. if not,then all these doesnt matter

One year of senior residency is really good option if dnb candidate want to be equivalent to md/ms to work in teaching institute .Otherwise dnb candidate from a hospital which is 100/200 beded hospital that too non mci recognised center is considered as nothing ,inspite of struggling so much to stand clear in nbe examination.Actually the nbe is so standard system of examination.
