Panel Advisory

The panel of doctors has advised the government to reduce the Non-Practising Allowance (NPA) of doctors from 25 to 20 per cent. It has also suggested that the House Rental Allowance (HRA) of doctors should be calculated on the basis of basic pay only and not on any other parameters like the combination of both the basic pay and the NPA.

"The government sector is already suffering from shortage of doctors. The biggest reason is the unattractive salary and poor career growth. Government doctors are already leaving the public health sector," Dr Vijay Gurjar, President of AIIMS RDA, said.

Strong Resentments

In order to enforce their advices, the doctors have threatened to sleep on the corridors of the hospital's administrative section if no action are taken to augment hostel facilities for them.

According to Dr Vijay Gurjar, president of the AIIMS RDA, hostels which were supposed to be allotted in October 2016 have not been allotted till now.

"We are forced to love in rented rooms. Residents are supposed to be kept in safe environment, but they don't get hostels even after two years," he said.
