There are frequent complaints about non-payment of stipend to medical students by various private medical institutions in the country. Regarding the redressal of these complaints, a survey was recently conducted by the National Medical Commission, New Delhi through Google-Form. As per the survey data released by the commission, a total of 10178 medical students participated in the survey through Google Form. Of these, 7901 were postgraduate medical students. Several startling truths emerged from this survey. This survey also revealed that many private medical institutions release stipend amount to medical PG students to avoid action and later take it back.
According to the data, 213 private medical institutions in 19 states and two union territories are not following the rules of Post Graduate Medical Education Regulation 2000 regarding stipend. Under which stipend is not given to a total of 2110 PG medical students of private medical institutions. While 4288 medical PG students are given stipend, but they are getting much less than the sanctioned amount as per rules. 1228 medical PG students are given stipend by private medical institutes and later taken back by the management. On the other hand, clear guidelines have been issued by the National Medical Commission to all private medical institutions to release the amount of stipend to medical PG students as per the Post Graduate Medical Education Regulation-2000 otherwise strict action will be taken.
