Not money in the form of allowances like hardship allowance etc. That may set a bad precedence. But certainly they should be provided with basic amenities free of cost and more importantly medical wherewithal and trained nursing staff. First aiders also. Some kind orientation or induction course should be regularly held.

Otherwise they seem reluctant to go there. It's the irony that while the state spent huge money for them, in return they don't like to serve the rural people.

Yes. This will encourage them.

"Assam has become the first state in the country to have carried out such a historic recruitment drive by appointing 768 doctors for rural postings in one single day," state Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said after handing over appointment letters to the doctors in Guwahati.

The young doctors would be getting a monthly fixed salary of Rs.25,000, besides free accommodation in their area of posting.

Off course there should be some kind of INCENTIVE, this is one of the practical option.

(IANS) Doctors who opt to work in rural areas will be duly compensated with extra money and weightage points that will help them while going for higher studies, Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad announced Thursday.
The only way to attract the attention of doctors to work in difficult, most difficult and inaccessible areas is through incentives. We have requested the states to give us the list under the above categories. We can provide extra money as extra incentive, Azad told reporters.!!!

They shouldn't get an extra money for working in rural area, but they should get something from the Government for doing noble work
