Rohtak: Tarun Kumar, who secured 626 marks in NEET exam ditched prestigious PGIMS Government medical College Rohtak even after he was eligible for a MBBS course seat here and selected ESIC medical college Faridabad.

PGIMS Rohtak is a state government run college while ESIC Medical College & Hospital, Faridabad is under the Ministry of Labour & Employment, Govt. of India.

The reason Tarun Kumar preferred central medical college over Haryana government run medical college is because of the introduction of bond provision of Rs. 40 lakh on the MBBS course students.

Talking to TOI, Tarun said that he wanted to pursue his MBBS course from Rohtak medical college but the bond provision of Rs. 40 lakh deterred him from the admission in state college.

“I come from a modest family background. My parents have already invested a lot of their savings on my studies and do not want more liability of Rs.40 lakh for the MBBS course. So, to avoid the monetary hassles, I opted for ESIC medical college, Faridabad”, he said.

A MBBS final year course student here said that till last year PGIMS Rohtak used to have admission till 6000 AIR rank but due to bond provision the merit has slipped to 13,000 AIR rank.

“Many students who secured good marks in NEET exam even chose Maharaja Agrasen Medical College, Agroha (private) over government’s PGIMS Rohtak just because they were not in a position to bear the burden of 40 lakh loan”, sources added.

Citing anonymity, a professor at the institute here said that from the All India Quota of MBBS seats in PGIMS Rohtak-only four seats have been filled others are remaining unfilled due to the impact of 40L bond. “Whosover got the opportunity to grab a seat in private or central government chose the medical college than Haryana government colleges”, professor added. 

Dr. S.S Lohchab, Dean Academic Affairs at PGIMS Rohtak however said that there has not been much difference in the meritorious students opting for the premier institute after the implementation of bond policy.
