NMC informed in its latest notification that “PG female students on maternity leave will be given stipend for extended training period”.
“According to Section 13.3 of PGMEB, 2000, the matter of grant of leave to PG students shall be governed by the rules of the concerned State Government.

Last year’s performance
Last year, several students, including MBBS interns from Bihar, Nagpur, Telangana, Osmania Medical Colleges protested to demand an increase in their monthly stipend. The Bihar intern demanded the authorities to increase the stipend from Rs 15,000 to Rs 30,000. MBBS interns of Lata Mangeshkar Hospital Nagpur and NKP Salve Institute of Medical Sciences were also protesting against the meager salary of Rs 100 per day.
In May 2022, the Corporation directed the Directorate of Medical Education and Medical Colleges not to charge interns. It also asked the authorities to provide stipend to Foreign Medical Graduates (FMGs) in front of Indian Medical Graduates in all states and Union Territories.
