Why do most Indian doctors shun rural service?Many states find it difficult to get doctors for rural service. Many governments grant seats with a mandatory rural service clause for doctors finishing their under or postgraduate courses under government quotas.
But all do not take up rural service. In a recent report from Karnataka, claims that only around 4% completed rural service, rest have paid penalties to the tune of 38 crores in the last few years.
This thread is not about who didn't or exact figures but the reason WHY?
Members who have relatives or children in the medical field, please express your view so that we can have a fair debate from the people who seek the service and the people who provide the service.
