It is the irony of fact that the engineers and other professionals such as lawyers are always neglected by the pay commissions as well as Government in comparison with the Doctors. The below are the examples:
- The doctors are entitled for Non Practicing allowance (NPA) even though there is no guarantee that doctors are not following the unethical practice of doing the private practice. It established that only the doctors are capable of making the private practice which requires compensation in terms of NPA. Why the engineers / Lawyers are not raising their voice against this discriminative decisions.
- The NPA of doctors are added to their basic pay which put them in advantageous position in comparison to Engineers / Lawyers having the same length of service in terms of Pension, Gratuity, Leave encashment & Govt. quarter allotment.
- When all the government officials are supposed to serve 24 hrs without undertaking any private business then why only the doctors’ capability is being compensated?
- Now, the 6th pay commission put the last nail in the coffin of the career of the Engineers / Lawyers by introducing the Dynamic ACP (DACP) for the doctors against the MACP for Engineers / Lawyers.
In a nutshell want to emphasize that uniformity in the career prospects of Engineers and Lawyers should immediately be equaled by the Government at par with the Doctors and discriminative preference given to Doctors should be stopped forthwith.
