The President also interacted with women sportspersons of the State during a programme organized at Haryana Raj Bhavan, Chandigarh today. Haryana Governor, Sh. Bandaru Dattatreya and Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal graced the occasion.

The President said that daughters are the embodiment of power. Every family should cooperate in taking daughters forward in every field so that they become empowered and continue to increase their contribution in every field. The way the daughters of Haryana have raised the pride of their families and state on the global stage in the sports field is one of the best examples of women empowerment, added the President.

“If men and women walk together, then the family, society and country will progress. However, women face more challenges in their life than men, so it is the responsibility of the family, society and government to nurture and empower the girl child,” said the President.

She praised the Governor and the Chief Minister for the successful implementation of the Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao campaign in Haryana and hoped that Haryana will continue to boost the morale of the State daughters by taking such revolutionary steps.

While interacting with the ASHA workers, doctors and sportspersons, the President said that she feels happy to share experiences with them.

President appreciates Haryana for making Beti Bachao , Beti Padhao a success

While appreciating Haryana for making Beti Bachao Beti Padhao a success, the President said that the State Government had done a commendable job in saving the lives of every girl by making spreading awareness about female feticide at the grassroot level. She also hoped that the Manohar Lal government will continue taking such pioneering steps to give love and affection to its daughters.

Sharing his experience related to the implementation of the Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao campaign and the difficulties faced during this, a doctor apprised the President that in the year 2015, Prime Minister had started this campaign from Panipat and later the Chief Minister Shri Manohar Lal had formed a separate cell for this successful implementation of this campaign at the grassroot levels.

He further shared that it is only because of the stringent steps taken by the Manohar Lal-led government against the gender determination tests, such illegal activities have been curbed to a larger extent. ‘Manohar Sarkar’ did what nobody ever thought of doing, said the doctor.

Echoing the same sentiments, another doctor told that earlier no strict action was taken on the ultrasound centres which conducted gender determination tests, but because of the stringent steps taken by the Chief Minister for the first time people conducting gender determination in an ultrasound centre in Jhajjar were arrested.

Similarly, abortion done through midwives in the villages was also stopped after strict action was also ensured against them. Through all these steps, a clear message was given that now this type of heinous act will not be allowed in Haryana, said the doctor.

Sharing her experience an ASHA worker told the President how she has been associated with the campaign since 2015 and has remained a part of 19 sex determination raids conducted across the State.

Women sportspersons should be the brand ambassadors of the Beti Bachao Beti Padhao campaign

The President also interacted directly with women sportspersons and learned about their life experiences. During this, mountaineer Anita Kundu from Hisar district, who hoisted the tricolour three times on Mount Everest and the highest peaks of the seven continents, shared her life experiences. She told how her mother supported her after her father's death and today achieved this height today. Haryana government also gave full support to her. Similarly, Pooja Sihag and Suchika also shared their success stories.

The President said that Chief Minister should ensure that whenever the team o Beti Bachao Beti Padhao campaign visits to make a family aware then it should also be ensured that such families should meet eminent women sportspersons so that they can be made to believe that daughters are pride, not a burden.

People’s mindset is changed and now Haryana too celebrates the birth of a girl child, Sh. Manohar Lal

The Chief Minister informed the President with the dedicated efforts of the State Government to save a girl child, now the mindset of people is changed and now Haryana too celebrates the birth of every daughter.

Time limit of seven-year bond agreement reduced to five years

Bond amount reduced to 30 lakhs, girls to get 10 percent discount

Government to give contractual jobs to MBBS students within one year of completing studies

Chandigarh, November 30: Keeping in mind the demands of the MBBS students, the state government after a detailed discussion with them; has made several important changes in the issue related to the MBBS bond policy. With the new changes, the government has reduced the time limit of the seven-year bond agreement to five years; including postgraduate (PG) education in this time period, eventually making the time limit of the bond as two years.

Along with this, the previous bond amount of Rs 40 lakhs has now been reduced to Rs 30 lakhs and by deducting the fees from this; the amount will come up to about Rs 25 lakhs. It has also been decided to give 10 percent relaxation for girls, excluding the institutional fees. Moreover, it has been decided that in case of any untoward incident with a student studying MBBS, his family will not be bound to pay the bond amount. Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal had given these instructions for changes after a meeting with the students' delegation.

The state government has taken another important decision of providing a government job (contractual) to the MBBS students; within one year of completion of their studies. Also, in case of a student doing a private job after completing studies and getting a salary less than that given to a medical officer by the government; he will not have to pay the bond amount until his salary would be equal to that of the medical officer or more than that. In such a situation, the government will offer a contractual job to the student.

Notably, the Haryana government has launched several schemes like CHIRAYU, Ayushman Bharat and Nirogi Haryana, which have been started to provide the best health facilities to the people of the state. Along with this, medical colleges are being built in all the districts of the state and government hospitals are also being opened; for which the government will require a large number of doctors in the coming times.

Chief Minister, Sh. Manohar Lal said that the state government is moving forward with the aim of providing health facilities to every person, especially the needy. He said that during the tenure of the present government, there has been an increase in the number of medical colleges, dental colleges, homeopathic colleges and nursing colleges in the state. In 2014, there were seven medical colleges in the state and MBBS seats were only 700. During the tenure of the present government, six colleges were opened and today the number of MBBS seats has increased to 1,735, he added.

Sh. Manohar Lal said that the government has a plan to open medical colleges in every district. “Medical colleges are being built in various districts of the state. As soon as the construction work of these medical colleges is completed; 3,000 students will be given admission for MBBS,” he said, adding that the government has increased the MBBS seats and in future also these seats will be increased; so that the shortage of doctors can be met. He said that the state government aims to meet the target of posting one doctor per 1,000 population; as per the criteria set by the World Health Organisation.
