It is a good step by government as the step will improve health conditions of the country and better caring of its citizens. We have more number of specialist doctors after 2-3 years and I am very much hopeful that it will also bring down cost of health facilities in the country and poor and lower middle class peoples will get better health services.
As a precautionary measure I will say that the relaxations given to medical colleges from teaching point of view must be withdrawn after certain period of time to increase quality of teaching in the medical colleges especially at private medical and dental colleges because now a days education sector is full of capitalism and is being exploited for commercial and profit purpose. In short education is commercialized now a days.
It is worth to be noted that best engineers of our country generally fly away to foreign countries in search of better options so while we are trying to increase number of doctors we must make sure that the top medical colleges who produces best doctors in the world must make a provision for their topper students so that these students provide their initial years(2-3 years) of service to the nation, it may be in some private/government/other organization but within the geographical limits of India. Also some ratio of whole medical students of the country must be given rural postings.
