Time running out for junior doctors?

By Our Staff Reporter

HYDERABAD, JAN. 13. The striking junior doctors now face a peculiar problem of missing an entry into the post-graduate medical courses if they do not complete the mandatory 75 per cent attendance in the MBBS course. The doctors, who have been on strike for more than a month, would have to attend classes by the end of this month given the examination schedule announced by the Government.

Officials said that as per the Graduate Medical Regulation Act, 1997, proposed by the Medical Council of India (MCI) and accepted by the Central Government, students should have 75 per cent attendance for taking the PG entrance examination. Moreover, any concession in attendance percentage given by the Government even after arriving at an agreement is not likely to be considered valid. "This is a problem the striking doctors have to think over," says an official.
