Indian Doctors Have to Return to India after training in US!
by j-sin 03-20-2012, 11:27 AM

The news is they are imposing a bond on J1 with eligibility criteria. You cannot apply for waiver unless u fulfill the bond or serve in India for say 4-5 years. The bond money is also high..around 5 lac..

http://www.indiacgny.org/php/showContent.php?linkid=191

Any idea what is the truth ? or the latest news on this ??

That's the way it should be. There are limited residency spots here as it is and many cities are saturated.

Firstly, it's India buddy. Nothing's gonna happen so soon.

Secondly, Even if we sign a bond, there will be a fee which we can pay to get out of it. A bond can never be one-sided. There will be a way out definitely.

Thirdly, It won't apply to H1 visa holders.

actually they said it would apply to ALL INDIAN DOCS abroad.. post 2012...
cos not only the NOC...
but also the Good Standing Certificate reqd in the US.. from the MCI.. will be brought under this..

so any doc abroad wanting this will need to sign the bond

heres the link
http://​timesofindia.indiatimes.com​...w/12843215.cms

however my question is??
they mentioned something about a Good Standing Certificate (GSC) reqd for any indian doc to work abroad.. i dont know details.. but said that apparently wudnt issue these without the bond..when is this GSC reqd? is it reqd for all US state licenses? is it reqd as part of signing the residency contract? or is it reqd for J1 visa purposes?

also what about students from indian medical schools.. u are US citizens/green card holders... they too for their official paperwork do need the letters and forms to be filled out by the home school/MCI while registering for any state licensure... what happens to them?

what about people from PVT medical colleges that the govt did nothing for?

Yes you are right but yes its already implemented
But i cant understand why this congress Govt always wants to earn money and loot us.
They always have one or more reason to screw us.
This bond may be a extension of NOC that we need for J1 visa.........but i am not sure.
Think for the best and hope for the worse......

Read this: http://www.tribuneindia.com/2012/20120424/nation.htm#2. It says there would be NO financial component to the bond, so no way out.

That looks bad now. Wtf is wrong with this govt. !! So there's no way we can go without signing a bond or if there's any exception to some particular kind of visas. Any details regarding this news will be much appreciated.

If someone can apply, see the bond required for the NOC and tell us the exact terms (minimum years that need to be spent in India post-residency, etc), it would be great.

i think this will apply to people taking j1 visa as an NOC from GOI/MCI is required for it. it will not apply for H1 visa as NOC is not a requirement.this is what i have heard in recent.can anyone who has taken J1 or H1 visa clearify on NOC requirement for it or not.

Where did you get this from? Because the newspaper quotes Azad as saying there would be no money component to the bond. And, there is no specific mention for J-1 vs H-1B.

Agreed. It specifically says no financial component. We won't kno until students apply this year for universities for their residency and find out.

Mr. Azad quotes

The move is expected to prevent the massive brain drain to the US that happens in the name of higher education every year. Health Ministry records show that over the past three years, 3,000 medical students left India for higher studies in universities across the world and did not return

I mean thats a baseless point it take atleast 3-4 years to complete your residency........He should also take the point that most of the people were sponsored J1 visa so they will naturally return back unless they find a waiver.

I think if he anyways wants to stop us he can just make a law that we cant practice outside India,why getting a bond and increasing our miseries.

Anyway, I hear that there was an affidavit required for J-1 NOC from this year? Anyone have any info about that? Is that affidavit and this bond the same?

so this basically means there is no way we can practice abroad!

I doubt that. If Azad says there isn't going to be a financial component to the bond, there isn't going to be one.

What I'm more interested in if there will be a specified time one needs to spend in India or if it would be for ever.

I have a feeling that this is the same as the affidavit signed by candidates applying for NOC for J-1 this year. Could anyone who knows anyone who had applied for J-1 this year ask them the exact clauses in that affidavit?

i guess it ll be forever. the entire purpose is to prevent the brain drain.
Also this suits the US govt. A policy implying more job openings for americans
So it all seems to make sense.
But this is really unfair to us !:-(

If it is for ever, it would be unconstitutional. So, if it is so, we can file a PIL. But, it probably isn't and someone should be able to find out exactly how much time this bond/affidavit specifies we should spend in India.

Any chance you could ask them again if the monetary terms were specifically mentioned in the bond?

Because as far as I can see on the website (http://www.indiacgny.org/php/showContent.php?linkid=191), the affidavit just says "I will return to India after the completion of my training".

Here I'm assuming the affidavit and the bond are the same. Can you clarify with your seniors who applied for J-1 this year if they are, in fact, the same?

It would be ridiculous if it applied to you. I understand it applying for the people who received subsidized education costs in India... if the government paid for their education, they owe something back. But if you graduated outside of India, then they can't impose anything.

it seems every year our state licsensing board gives the NOC to the students here.. but this year they were asked to go to delhi and the bond showed up there.. they did pay 4 lacs... but as you can see... all i have got are words .. will post as soon i find something concrete ...

hhhhh niceeeeeee .

in country where people still die coz of hunger . and the government spend money to make medical education free. compared to US where student spend thousands of dollars to be in med school.
this should have been done a long time ago.

Maybe now people will remember the purpose of medicine in first place.

that said how many will like to keep indian citizenship after being settled abroad
don't worry next gov will through the rule away

P.S no offense , whatever happen -happens for Good right ?

I will believe it only when it is implemented. This freakin' Health minister doesn't know jack about anything. It's only a matter of time when this govt falls & he is kicked out of his office. And besides, even if this is implemented, he cannot stop us from going on a H1. I personally won't mind waiting another year to go on a H1. And it will definitely seal my intent of not coming back ever. I'd rather not stay someplace where we are slaves to the government's whims & fancies. FTS.

Vaibhav,

What if one fine day when you are working your waiver job that they tell you that your license to practice medicine in US is no longer valid? What will you do then, and who will you approach?

What abt other citizens?

This is ridiculous... So what do they want?? Means doctors can never leave the country??? What about american citizens who came to india to take the mbbs degree? Cant they go back to their home town? And what abt students who paid managemant seats in india? The govt has no rights to ask them to stay. Everybody has the right to locate to any country of their choice. Me and my family are Canadian PRs. So cant I ever go stay with my family now jus coz i took my degree from india???

It makes sense if they ask this bond for students who took degree thru govt seats as the govt paid for their education and they need to give it back in service. But they cant deny it to other students.

Any idea what is the truth ? or the latest news on this ??
I got H1B visa for July 1, 2012 session. I haven't given any bond. If somebody is asked, they should go to High Court and bring a stay on this decision. This decision means nothing but life imprisonment in a country ruled by rogues for being a doctor. Moreover, many would fulfilled their obligation to the country like serving her for 5 years or so; they have a ready remedy if they are asked to sign a bond.

Who else has a news? Has anybody signed a bond? Is effective form application season of 2012?

I have a question.....

If Program Director's Will Know That this particular applicant is Indian national and He/she is not going to stay here and is not going to serve our people , y would they offer residency to us????the sole purpose of residency will be finished......PGs will know that indians r going to serve their people after residency ,they will not offer residency to us.....!!!

Hey buddy,
If i come here on a H1, I won't need to do a waiver right? That's what i was implying actually.

And yeah US will never do that. They do not discriminate with anyone. If they had something against IMGs then why they will tell only India to do something like this?
Anyways, I told my uncle this yday. He & his friends had a great laugh about this at the hospital. He said not to worry since such a binding thing can never work out.

Also, I think clearing exams is a more pressing matter than speculating on what's gonna happen! When it does, we will deal with it.

WOW, that's new. Where did you hear that? India recognizes postgraduate degrees of US, UK, Canada, NZ, Australia. The notification is on MCI's website.

Also, I don't think there is any country who doesn't recognizes US degrees.

My Wife is on a dependent visa (in US already)and preparing for USMLE. If she applies for J1 does she need this NOC too ??? And does this affect her or would this affect only doctors coming from India directly for higher studies?

Appreciate your responses.

Is this law is applied to foreign medical graduates of india??
Why should we sign the bond???indian gov. Has not spent any money on our medical education...we should have our rights to make our decisions ....
These selfish politicians want to make us slave....we should have our own rights to make decisions..where we want to study and want to settle down...
Indian gov. Should improve our medical system n stop corruption then all talented doctors will not fly overseas .....

S*** happens!!

The whole thing had me thinking back what next!! in the beginning of the preparation it's kinda disturbing (though I firmly believe Anything is possible in India, you can always escape some how ..lol) is there anyway out from the bond? have read there is no financial component for it..

exactly, what about indian nationals who havent done their graduation in india???? GOI did not invest on us, we paid for every bit we had to...

also, to get rid of doctors shortage, increase the mbbs and md seats... and remove the reservation for mbbs entrance and md/dnb entrance....let ppl who deserve it get the seats... u will get ur 'brain gain' that way...
every now and then ppl talk about someone or the other getting exposed of the scams they committed, but never do we here about the lost govt money being collected... do that, it will greatly help in making medical sector better...
also, politicians shud sign a bond, with no monetary side to it, saying they wont get involved in corruption and if found guilty, will donate everything they own, along with the extra wealth and property in their family's name to the medical sector and go to jail and be banned from entering politics or any kind of govt job or support services...
ppl dont understand, they think medicos go out of india and settle there for the money, well, they pay more income tax to indian govt than anyone who works in india does....
nobodys born with a silver spoon... if someone deserves to be better, do better and he works really hard for it, i dont think it is right of the govt to impose such a rule on its free citizens....

How can someone give in written to something that is'nt (bond) even framed yet...... What if someone wants to make a decision after getting to know the components of the bond?
This is really unfair to ask for the affidavit at this point.....

Gov. should understand why doctors are flying to foreign countries....gov should go to the root of the problem...
we spend lot of time,energy n hard earn money of our parents to clear usmle steps to get residency in USA....
If government want us to come back then government should sponsor us all expenditure to clear steps ,keep scholarships ,give us all facilities in india which we get in united states..

u guys just cool down ...we will definitely find some loopholes to escape ....after all we are also indians like this politicians...

what about caribbean schools?

It seems to me that the bond you have to sign is only for USA. Why not go to a caribbean school then? (I am not sure if it applies there too BUT if it doesn't..) Almost all of them have clinical rotations in the US and you won't be obligated to sign any type of bond! I know a few students that are doing their clinical rotations in US with a visiting visa. There has to be some ways around US immigration once you have finished school and applying for residency. In the end you have got your medical education and you are not bound by any contracts.

What's there to confuse? Just work for 5 years in your home country, and then go to USA.

Hi everyone!!

Keep this thread alive & update...
I'm indian FMG applying for coming match, screwed up completely as indian government has not spent single rupee on my studies...
tell their sc/st/nt students to work in rural areas as they get seat even if they get 50% or less than that.
Total crap...

Me and my family are Canadian PRs. So cant I ever go stay with my family now jus coz i took my degree from india???

It makes sense if they ask this bond for students who took degree thru govt seats as the govt paid for their education and they need to give it back in service. But they cant deny it to other students.


HEY im from mmc gujarat, its self finance college,, i paid 10 lacs for my education,, not the bloody gov has share on that!!! then why the fu*** i shoud serve them!!! its ok if they ask gov students who pay 6000/yr only,, gov help them ,not us...
.
.
but still students of my colllege are also forced to sign bond!!!! can any 1 explain how it can happen that they have made "Us" sign bond!!!!??/
