AGARTALA, Oct 13 (TIWN): Tripura's Veterinary students are undergoing tremendous financial crisis as their internship allowance has been stuck at Rs. Thirteen Hundred only. The students of Veterinary alleged that whereas medical students are getting Eighteen Thousand per month, but the negligence of the state govt has left them with only Thirteen Hundred which not even adequate for their bus fares. Talking to TIWN, Tripura Education Minister Tapan Chakraborty in this regard said, "It's true medical students are benefited of high allowances but Veterinaries are not. Hence whether there is any preparation to pass the bill in Assembly I can say right now". Tapan Chakraborty further suggested to talk to the Minister of Animal Resource Development Aghore Debbarma. However, Aghore Debbarma said, "Right now there is no talk on this but discussion can be made on this. But right now I am not in state, so better if you contact Secretary M L Dey in this regard".

Education Minister Tapan Chakraborty further suggested to ask the Principal of Veterinary College for this.

On the other side, students are the worst sufferers due to the negligence of the State Govt in Veterinary Education development. Tripura also suffers from poor condition of Veterinary hospitals and maximum of them remain shutdown for 12 hours.

The students have to undergo for 6 months of internship  from January to June in 8 / 9 different places inside Tripura  like Devipur, Bishalghar , Gandhigram , Sipahijala Zoo , Duck farm , Cattle farm , Trainning Veterinary clinical Complex (C.V Sc &A.H) , Abhaynagar state vet. hospital , D.I lab. Etc.

But whereas other medical profession like MBBS are doing their Internship on a one particular place i,e A.G.M.C or TMC so their transportation cost is not that much like Veterinary profession but they are getting around 18000/  per month.

Veterinary students internship allowance which  is only Rs. 1300 has irked heavy resentment among the students.

Question also raised by the Veterinary, why no such bill was passed in the Assembly so that the students get atleast the deserve amount for their internship ?
