The country’s medical education regulator Medical Council of India (MCI) has approved a proposal to pay stipend to the fifth year MBBS students who are doing their one-year internship in private medical colleges across the country. With this decision of MCI more than 40,000 medicos from 240 private medical colleges will be benefited pan-India.

At present, only the MBBS students who are studying in government medical colleges are paid the stipend for one-year internship, however with MCI's ruling from now onwards all those medicos in their 5th year of MBBS course from across all private medical colleges who will be on internship in their respective medical college hospitals will be paid a stipend ranging from Rs. 6,000 to 20,000, on similar lines with the government medical college students.

The proposal which was being placed by the private medical college managements since long has now been finally given consent by the board of governors (BoG) of Medical Council of India. As there are some more formalities that are needed to be completed, the MCI officials said that soon after completion of all these formalities, they would soon implement the new regulation of payment of stipend to medicos in private medical colleges.

“There has been a long demand by the MBBS students from private medical colleges that they too be given stipend on the lines of government college students. After giving a careful thought to this proposal, the MCI has come to a decision to eradicate the disparity between the students in private and government medical colleges and has finally decided to pay the stipend to the MBBS students during their one year internship period,” informed a senior MCI official.

However, the MCI authorities have also put a condition that only those MBBS students who prefer to do an intern in the hospital attached to their own medical college will get the benefit, while those who go out to do intern in private hospitals will not get the benefit.

With this new proposal, the states of southern India and Maharashtra will be getting a huge benefit because there are more than 80 per cent private medical colleges located in this region.
