3500 Karnataka MBBS Graduates Await KMC Registration

Date: 15-Apr-2021

Around 3500 MBBS graduates of the 2015 batch in Karnataka cannot practice even after 70 days of graduation from different medical colleges in Karnataka as they are yet to be registered with the Karnataka Medical Council (KMC). This is because these medical colleges have withheld their documents that these students had submitted during the time of admission. The graduates cannot apply for KMC registrations without these documents.

Disheartened with the actions, these candidates have started a Twitter and Instagram campaign on Tuesday with hash tags #doctorsdeniedlicence; #weneedKMCregistration which is receiving a lot of attention. According to the statements given by these medical colleges, they acted according to the instructions given to them by the Directorate of Medical Education who asked them to withhold the documents as there is no clarity on the rural service. Karnataka Compulsory Service by Candidates Completed Medical Courses Act, 2012 mandates one year compulsory government service that all candidates should take up compulsory training service after having completed medical courses covering undergraduate, post-graduate degree/diploma and super specialty courses in various disciplines, failing which penalty ranging 30 lakh to 50 lakh rupees is to be paid by the defaulting candidates.

The students under the Karnataka Association of House Surgeons (KAHS) have come together against this saying that the case of compulsory rural service is still in the high court and it will take time till a judgment is passed. By the time, the students demand is to get registered with the KMC so that they can start practicing and not depend on their parents even after graduating. These students are planning to meet Health and Medical Education Minister K. Sudhakar to discuss about it. Meanwhile, the Health and Medical Education department has also scheduled a meeting to discuss about the matter.
