Bill to lift embargo on awarding medical degrees

A bill that provides for lifting the embargo on award of degrees for graduate and post graduate medical students who have not done compulsory rural service was introduced in the Legislative Assembly on Wednesday.

At present, provisions of the Karnataka Compulsory Service Training by Candidates Completed Medical Courses (Amendment) Bill, 2017 states that no university shall award degree to such candidates who do not undergo compulsory rural service training.  The bill tabled on Wednesday also omits the concept of training for graduate and post graduate medical students in government hospitals before giving permanent registration.

Another bill to enhance the upper limit to hold office of vice chancellor of Dr Gangubai Hangal Music University to 67 years was also tabled in the Assembly.
