The Honorable Supreme Court has upheld the mandatory service bond condition imposed by State Governments for students taking PG medical admission and admission to Super-Specialty courses in Government medical colleges. The Apex Court has asked the Central Government and MCI to frame policy to make it compulsory for PG medical students and Super-Specialty students to service in Public hospitals and health care centers in rural areas for a certain period after they pass out.

The apex court noted that the Government by means of opening new medical colleges and facilitating medical education at low fees, is spending a huge money on each medical student and therefore the condition of imposing service bond is not illegal and arbitrary. It is meant to ensure that the people in rural areas get specialist healthcare.

As the bond condition imposed by State Governments are not uniform and the service period varies from 2 to 5 years while the bond amount is different across States and is upto 50 Lakhs, the Apex Court has fixed the Compulsory rural service bond at 2 years and penalty is set at 20 Lakhs.

So far, many Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Goa, Gujarat, Kerala, Himachal Pradesh, Maharashtra, Odisha, Tamil Nadu, Rajasthan, West Bengal and Telangana have imposed provision for Compulsory Rural Service Bond in Government medical colleges.
