On 23rd Decemeber, 2014 The Health Minister, Shri J P Nadda stated following points in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha regarding reservation for Medical Officers in PG Medical diploma courses.

  1. 50% reservation in Post Graduate Diploma Courses for Medical Officers in the Government service, who have served for at least three years in remote and difficult areas; and
  2. Incentive at the rate of 10% the marks obtained for each year in service in remote or difficult are as upto the maximum of 30% of the marks obtained in the entrance test for admissions in Post Graduate Medical Courses.

This proposal of Medical Council of India (MCI) to amend the Post Graduate Medical Education Regulations, which makes one year rural posting at a Public Health Centre (PHC) mandatory for a MBBS student to apply for admission in a PG course, is not yet notified.

Similar kind of replies have been made by previous Health Ministers in Rajya Sabha many times in past. Also it was mentioned in NEET PG Introduction and a notice on PIB website.
