MBBS Bond in different states? NEET UG Government Medical College Bond in India

The medical UG bond is applicable during admission to the MBBS seat through either MCC UG Counselling or the State UG Medical Counselling process. The bond format and terms & conditions are defined by the State Government's Health Department in the case of Government Medical College and by Institute Management in the case of Deemed University Management Quota.

How many types of MBBS Bonds are there? (NEET UG Medical Bond)  

Service Bond: 

The candidate needs to serve as a senior resident doctor after passing the MBBS course. In the case of Government Medical College, the state health department allots a hospital/PHC/CHC to all passing MBBS students. The Government Medical College service bond also includes the bond amount. If a student does not want to serve, they need to pay the agreed amount to the Government to get an MBBS qualification certificate.

Discontinue Penalty Bond: 

It applies to students who left the course before completing MBBS tenure and usually includes a financial penalty amount. Such bond includes all types of seat quota and category across the different categories of institutes like State Government, Central Government, Deemed University, and Private Medical Colleges.  

Bank Guarantee: 

Some State Governments ask for a particular amount of bank guarantee at the time of MBBS admission confirmation. Nationalized Bank will issue the bank guarantee, and they provide such a document/ letter stating that the account holder has such an amount as a Fixed Deposit against the course admission. This means the fixed deposit will be frozen until the student completes the course and fulfills the bond terms. If students do not fulfill the government service after MBBS completion, such bank guarantee is forfeited, and the amount is recovered by the State Government against the bond terms.  

Compulsory Rural Service Bond: 

The students need to do rural service in PHC/ CHC after completing MBBS under the policy of the respected state government. It applies to a few states with such compulsory clauses as a part of their bond affidavit documents. It also applies to some state governments offering Scholarship Schemes or Fee Reimbursement schemes for economically weaker students. In such cases, students, irrespective of the type of institute (Government or Private), must do government service for a defined period after completing the MBBS course.  

Dose Deemed University have MBBS service bond?

NO. The Deemed University has two types of seat quotas: Management/Paid and NRI. In both quotas, the university will ask to provide an affidavit from parents to ensure the payment of MBBS fees and to complete the course tenure. So, they do not ask students to do hospital service after completing the MBBS course.
