Out of 272 specialists officers who were allowed to leave service prematurely during the period 2006-2010, 79% left due to supersession in promotion and low medical category and 21% left due to extreme compassionate grounds.
To discourage commissioned doctors from leaving, several measures have been taken by the Government. Additional marks are awarded to specialist doctors for professional qualifications while considering them for promotions by the concerned Promotion Boards. Specialists trained in Armed Forces Medical Services undertake to serve for a period of 10 years after post graduation. Opportunities are provided to specialist officers to train further in super specialties / allied specialties which act as an incentive for them to continue to serve with the organization. For retaining trained doctors, opportunities for doing Post Graduation are also provided to them. Option of raising the amount of the bond required to be executed at the time of taking admission for MBBS course as also for doing other courses is also available with the Government for this purpose.
