10 . Read the following passage carefully and the following . Passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words/phrases have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.

In February 2014 the Medical Council of India announced a major change in the regulation governing the establishment of medical colleges. With this change, corporate entiti es were $permitted$ to open medical colleges. The new regulation also carried two following warning : 'permission shall be withdrawn if the colleges resort to commercialization'. Since, the regulation does not elaborate on what constitutes 'resorting to commercialisation', this will presumably be a matter left to the discretion of the Government.

A basic requirement for a new medical college is a pre-existing hospital. Corporate entities have hospitals in the major metros and that is where they will have to locate medical colleges. The earlier mandated land requirement for a medical colleges campus, minimum of 25 acres of contiguous land, cannot be fulfilled in the metros. Not surprisingly, yet another tweak has been made in the regulation, prescribing 10 acres as the new minimum campus size for 9 cities including the main metros. With this, the stage is set for corporate entities to enter the medical education market.

Until now, medical education in India has been projected as a not-for-profit activity to be organised for the public good. While private bodies can run medical colleges, these can only be soci eti es or trusts, legally non-profit organizations. In opening the door to corporate colleges, thus, a major policy change has been effected without changing the law or even a discussion in Parliament, but by simply getting a $compliant$ MCI to change the regulation on establishment of medical colleges. This and other changes have been justified in the name of addressing the shortage of doctors. At the same time, over 50 existing medical colleges, including 15 run by the government, have been prohibited from admitting students in 2010 for having failed to meet the basic standards prescribed. Ninety percent of these colleges have come up in the last 5 years. Particularly $shocking$ is the phenomenon of government colleges falling short of standards approved by the Government. Why are state government institutions not able to meet the requirements that have been approved by the central government? A severe proble faced by government-run institutions is attracting and retaining teaching faculty, and this is likely to be among the major reasons for these colleges failing to satisfy the MCI norms. The crisis building up on the faculty front has been $flagged$ by various commissions looking into problems of medical education over the years.

An indicator of the crisis is the attempt to conj ure up f acul ty when MCI carries out inspections of new colleges, one of its regulatory functions. Judging by news reports, the practice of presenting fake faculty students or private medical practitioners hired for the day -during MCI inspections in private colleges is common. What is interesting is that even government colleges are adopting$ unscrupulous$ methods. Another indicator is the extraordinary scheme, verging on the ridiculous that is being put in place by the MCI to make inspections 'foolproof.

Faculty in all medical colleges are to be issued an RFID based smart card by the MCI with a unique faculty number. The card, it is argued, will eliminate the possibility of a teacher being shown on the faculty of more than one college and establish if the qualifications of a teacher are genuine. In the future, it is projected that biometric RFID readers will be installed in the colleges that will enable a Faculty Identification, Tracking and Monitoring System to monitor faculty from within the college and even remotely from MCI headquarters.

The picture above does not even start to reveal the true and pathetic situation of medical care especially in rural India. Only a fraction of the doctors and nursing professionals serve rural areas where 70 percent of our population lives. The Health Ministry, with the help of the MCI, has been active i n proposi ng yet another 'innovative' solution to the problem of lack of doctors in the rural areas. The proposal is for a three- and- a half year course to obtain the degree of Bachelor of Rural Medicine and Surgery (BRMS). Only rural candidates would be able to join this course. The study and training would happen at two different levels -Community Health Centers for 18 months, and sub-divisional hospitals for a further period of 2 years and be conducted by retired professors. After completion of training, they would only be able to serve in their own state in district hospitals, community health centres, and primary health centres

The BRMS proposal has invited sharp criticism from some doctors' organisations on the grounds that it is discriminatory to have two different standards of healthcare- one for urban and the other for rural areas, and that the health care prov i ded by such graduates wi l l be compromised. At the other end is the opinion expressed by some that ""something is better than nothing"", that since doctors do not want to serve in rural areas, the government may as well create a new cadre of medics who will be obliged to serve there. The debate will surely pick up after the government formally lays out its plans. What is apparent is that neither this proposal nor the various stopgap measures adopted so far address the root of the problem of healthcare. The far larger issue is government policy, the low priority attached by the government to the social sector as a whole and the health sector in particular, evidenced in t he paltry allocations for mai ntai ni ng and upgradi ng medical infrastructure and medical education and for looking after precious human resources.
What solution is being offered by the Health Ministry for the shortage of doctors in rural areas?
A.  Increase the number of government run hospitals in the rural areas thereby increasi ng the number of doctors catering to the people in these regions B.    Make it mandatory for doctors serving in the urban areas to serve in the rural areas for a specific number of years
C.  Set up increasing number of community health centres in rural areas D.    Hire retired professors of medicine to offer medical help to people living in the rural areas till the time more doctors are appointed
E.    Run a separate medical course for three and a half years which can be taken up only by rural candidtes who would ultimately serve in the rural areas
