UPs new rules for studying medicine -

Uttar Pradesh government on Saturday, has mandated 10 years of medical service for Post-graduation medical students; failing to complete, a fine of Rs 1 crore.

This will ensure no good students take up medicine in UP. What an excellent strategy. Phir medical professors se ilaj karwana hoga, ya phir padosi rajyon mein jaiyeega

In a controversial move, the Uttar Pradesh government on Saturday, has mandated 10 years of medical service for Post-graduation medical students. Elaborating on the decision, the state's principal Health secretary Amit Mohan, said that anyone failing to complete the mandatory service will be fined Rs 1 crore. He added that anyone leaving the course in between will be debarred from the PG degree course for the next three years. more

I assume you are an educated person...good enough to create a post on Local Circles. Did you do any search or investigation of your own to find out if government really said that and if yes under what condition. Please go through the information shared by govt which states that this information is not shown in its entirety:

This is specifically for Doctors who are under PHMS category and these are the doctors who are given special/extra marks to get admission into PG courses. 10% extra marks if they have served for 1 year, 20% extra marks if they have served for 2 years and so on. This helps them in getting admission to the PG Courses. Govt. does this to encourage specialization in Doctors. It is for these Doctors only govt. has mandated this and it is not for everybody as your post implies.

If you have done a little bit of research you would have found the following news item as well which was from The Hindu and from 2010:

It states the following:
About 1,053 doctors of the Provincial Medical and Health Services (PMHS) cadre in Uttar Pradesh, who were absent from service for the past one decade, were dismissed on Friday. These doctors, posted in government hospitals and community health centres all over the State, could not be traced. It is suspected that they are either practising on their own or have gone abroad.

So, govt. has to be strict with such Doctors and this is the right step being taken by them. Please do some digging and research before posting anything whether it concerns an individual or public. more  
govt spends huge sum on educating engineers also, specially in IIT's. But how many serve in govt jobs after graduating from IIT ? Or rather we should be asking how many serve in India ??? They go abroad to serve foreign companies. Which means tax payers money is being spent to prepare technical manpower for other countries. I think there should be level playing field for everyone. more  
I feel the move is excellent. In fact similar move should be introduced even on other professionals., not only Doctors. A lot of money is spent by government on such colleges providing such professional degrees. It is as much the responsibility of the graduates to return the favour to the country. more  
I think there is a shortage of medical professional in India, first govt should setup more medical colleges through out india, more AIIMS required, medical education is very expensive so Govt should do something in this direction. Ayurveda doctors educational level should be improved, specially in the surgery field. so the workload will be reduced on MBBS. more  
When Govt. Is spending good amount on medical education, Govt. have to take such decision to run it's medical services. more  
Fully agree. more
