Medical informaticas graduates are being asked to take a new job in the nursing industry.
A new salary offer to doctors, dentists and other medical professionals was announced by the government today.
The government had announced in March that it will provide the medical profession with a new salary for its graduates by 2021, with the aim of bringing in a new generation of doctors and dentists.
It has been estimated that there are around 70,000 doctors and 1.5 million dentists working in the country, the report said.
Medical informatics was launched by the Indian government in April last year to fill a shortage in medical information technology and communication services.
The move has been hailed as a step towards addressing the shortage in healthcare services and training of doctors.
