UP Government has taken a major policy decision which may affect the future of thousands of PG doctors in Uttar Pradesh. UP government has decided to lead a 10-year bond service for doctors completing their PG medical courses in the state.
Students of post-graduation (PG) medical courses in Uttar Pradesh will have to serve in the state-run hospitals for 10 years. If a student fails to do so, s/he will have to pay a hefty fine of Rs. 1 crore.

Anyone failing to do so has to pay a fine amount of Rs 1 crore,” Principal Health Secretary Amit Mohan Prasad said. “Anyone leaving the course in between will be debarred from the PG degree course for the next three years,” he added.
Once completed graduation or post-graduation, medical students are required to serve in government-run hospitals. The duration of this service varies from state to state.
