After completing their MBBS course, medical students are required to undertake internships at hospitals before they are granted permission to start their own practice.
Convener of JGDCC Dr Inderveer Gill said the agitation over the allowance is to save the public healthcare system.

The strike started on May 31 by junior doctors of government medical colleges in Indore, Bhopal, Jabalpur, Gwalior, Sagar and Rewa was subsequently ended at 2 pm on Monday.
Minister Vishvas Sarang appealed the junior doctors to return to duties for honouring the Madhya Pradesh HC's recent directions as well as in the larger interests of patients amid the pandemic.
After striking work for a day, suspending all Covid-19 emergency and elective services, all the 3,500 junior doctors and Senior Residents (SRs) called off their protest.
Director of Medical Education Dr Ramesh Reddy maintained that the increments given to senior resident doctors and junior doctors put them ahead of their counterparts in other states.
Reacting to the doctors' strike, he said if the demands were genuine, then the government would have no objection to addressing them.
He also requested the junior doctors to attend to emergency services and adopt different forms of protest, instead of boycotting emergency services amidst the pandemic.
The junior doctors of Kakatiya Medical College, Osmania Medical College, Nizamabad Medical College and TJUDA have demanded a 15 per cent hike in stipend among other things.
Hundreds of professors and lecturers affiliated to the Gujarat Medical Teachers Association (GMTA) joined in the protest.
Two among five government doctors who have launched a fast unto death, pressing their four-point charter of demands were hospitalised on Monday, the fourth day of their strike.
The protest is against the National Medical Commission Bill that will be tabled in the Parliament on Saturday.
IMA Secretary Dr V Rajesh Babu said that they are against the NMC Bill because out of the 25 members of NMC, only five members are elected members and the representation to the states are unequal.
