The stipend issue has been a bone of contention time and again with the medical students and state government. This is a positive step in resolving issues. Finally, the interns will receive the reward for what they have been fighting for over the past few years.

While speaking to My Medical Mantra, Dr T P Lahane, Director of the Directorate of Medical Education and Research (DMER), said, “There will be an increase of Rs 5,000. The stipend will now be Rs 11,000. They will receive this amount from September onwards.”

While speaking to My Medical Mantra, Dr Nitish Nadkarni, Vice President, Association of State Medical Interns (ASMI), Mumbai, said, “August 28 will be marked as a historic day for all the interns across the state. Today, the cabinet has approved our request of increasing the stipend of intern doctors which was pending since 2015. We are thankful to all, for all the hard work taken by our seniors and our colleagues. The stipend increase will be in effect from August 01. The beneficiaries of the stipend hike are the interns of MBBS, BDS, Ayurveda and Unani.”

Since 2015, MBBS Interns are given Rs. 6,000/- as stipend all over Maharashtra.

The intern doctors have been fighting to raise the stipend. In a circular given by the Medical Council of India (MCI), interns are supposed to get 50% of the amount of what residents get in the 1st year.

However, this was not followed Maharashtra. In a meeting conducted on 10th July 2015, it was proposed that the stipend would be raised to an amount of Rs 11,000/

After the DMER gave its nod to increase the stipend amount, the interns can look forward to receiving a raise.
