The recommendation of a Rural Indemnity Bond after MBBS aims to address the rural-urban disparity in the Indian healthcare system. It is a radical reform in medical education curriculum and generates searching questions: How to affect the attitudes of medical graduates? Are there other successful models we can learn from? Do the healthcare challenges need a more integrated action? A policy enforcing the shunting of doctors needs to take the apprehensions of all the stakeholders into consideration. The broader issue of Rural Health Iniquity, that plagues the country requires interventions at multiple levels with a properly financed healthcare system at its foundation.
