7th Pay Commission – Resident doctors at Delhi Govt hospitals threaten mass leave
7th Pay Commission – Resident doctors at Delhi Govt hospitals threaten mass leave.
Resident doctors working at Delhi-government run hospitals on Tuesday threatened to go on mass leave from 17 January if their demand for implementation of 7th Pay Commission recommendations were not met by then.
The warning came after representatives of the Federation of Resident Doctors Association (FORDA) met Delhi health minister Satyendra Jain urging him to ensure the recommendations of the 7th pay commission were implemented for resident doctors working at Delhi government- run hospitals.
Already these (7th pay recommendation) have been implemented for resident doctors in central government hospitals but they have not been implemented for us,” FORDA president Pankaj Solanki said.
“The implementation will bring in a hike in the salaries of the resident doctors. We want the health minister to issue orders to all its hospitals. We are still looking forward to a positive response from the minister in this regard,” he said. He said if their demand was not met, the resident doctors in Delhi government-run hospitals will go on mass leave from 17 January.
FORDA, an association created for the welfare of resident doctors all over India, was founded in January 2014 in Delhi.
