The Supreme Court has asked for more clarity regarding the bond period of MBBS pass outs of Employees State Insurance Medical colleges. According to Judges CT Ravikumar and Sudhanshu Dhulia, the corporation should give it in writing whether the bond period is for 1 year or 5 years.

This was after a plea submitted by the ESI Junior doctors demanding that they should be considered for the 50% service quota category accorded for the PG courses. Currently, only the doctors appointed by the corporation can avail of the 50% service quota, according to the plea. Though they are given bonds for 5 years of service, this service quota is not accessible to them.

But according to the corporation on 2020 November 24th the 5-year bond has been changed to 1 year. The court has asked them to put that in writing.
