Stipend for MDS candidates admitted through Neet exam.

This petition had 175 supporters

Despite making it mandatory to provide stipend for the candidates admitted through Neet MDS exam, they are still not being paid.

Many dentists have reported that they are made to work hard amidst their regular academic activities. No action has been taken till now by any respected authority and the dentists are being forced to work without any stipend to support themselves. Dentists have spent a huge amount for their studies and have to pay out their student loan, which is not possible with this situation. Even for daily expenses for these three years of study they have to entirely depend on their parents. Its really hard to imagine the situation for the financially backward classes, whose parents are taking huge sum of amount as debt just to see their son/daughter pursue the dream.

Its high time the Government and Dental Council of India take sincere efforts to solve the plight of dentists. It would be of great help for us to meet with our daily expenses without having to trouble our parents and people like us could confidently join for MDS taking educational loan without thinking twice.

I'm a dentist myself and even after getting qualified for neet exam and getting a seat alloted for the branch i dreamt of I had to drop it. I witnessed many dentists going through a similar situation during the counselling. And the situation of dentists who joined the post graduation course expecting a stipend is even more difficult. Henceforth this petition, to improve the condition of my fellow dentists who have already joined MDS and who are waiting to join in the coming years.
