The health department has devised a formula to categorise community health centres (CHCs) and primary health centres (PHCs) in remote and difficult areas for the benefit of MBBS doctors applying for post-graduation courses.
According to health department officials, districts that are less than 300 kilometres away from Jaipur headquarters will come under Category A. Under Category B will come districts that are 300 to 500 kilometers away and in Category C districts that are 500 km or more away.
In Category A, CHCs and PHCs that are 80km away from the district headquarters will fall under remote and difficult areas. In high priority districts of Category A, including Bharatpur and Karauli, CHCs and PHCs that are 60km away from the district headquarters have been identified as remote and difficult areas.
