MP: ‘Doctors of district hospital should also be given the benefit of reservation in medical PG admission’, High Court refuses to give incentive marks

Madhya Pradesh High Court (Madhya Pradesh High Court) said in an important decision that government doctors working in district and civil hospitals across the state (Civil and District Hospitals Doctors) Admission Process for PG Course (PG Medical Courses) are eligible for the benefit of reservation. The court said that 30 percent reservation was brought for the purpose so that all government doctors get the benefit of reservation. However, the court has refused to give incentive points to doctors who have served in COVID-affected districts.

A bench of Justice Sujoy Paul and Justice Arun Sharma was considering a petition filed by MBBS-qualified doctors, who are serving as regular employees in the state’s health services department. The court said that the government cannot deprive them of this. A bench of Justice Sujay Paul and Justice Arun Sharma said that 30 percent reservation has been brought by the state government in PG degree courses with the aim that all government doctors should get the benefit of reservation.

Can’t discount posting locations as “hard zones”

The court further said that it cannot be confined to doctors working only in remote, rural and difficult areas. However, the court partly rejected the request for 10 per cent additional marks, saying that considering their places of posting for 1.5 years as “difficult areas” cannot be the basis for PG admission.

The priority list prepared by the government was challenged by filing a petition in November 2021 on behalf of the doctors of the district hospitals. It was sought to be repealed. Advocate Siddharth Radhelal Gupta, on behalf of the petitioner doctors, told the court that in August 2021, a provision of 30 percent reservation was made by the state government for doctors working in rural, remote and difficult areas in the state. It was argued that such discrimination to be done for giving benefit of reservation is completely unconstitutional and unfair. According to the current rules, all government doctors are entitled to this benefit and it cannot be limited to a particular category. It was prayed that the counseling process should be put on hold till the merit list is not revised.
