RANCHI: The governing council of Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) on Monday discussed over 22-point agenda and came up with recommendations to be approved by the state government.
The body passed a resolution to regularize the nurses presently working on contract against the available vacancies in the hospital. It also reiterated its stand on giving pay scale as admissible to the Central Government Health Service (CGHS) workers. The recommendation has been sent by the governing body for the second time in succession awaiting final nod of the government, sources said.
Chaired by health minister Hemlal Murmu, the meeting was attended by All India Institute of Medical Sciences director R C Deka, health secretary K Vidyasagar, RIMS director Tulsi Mahto, superintendent Manoj Kumar Rai and other members of the governing body.
During the council meet, Mahto said altogether 41 'action taken' reports and 22 additional agenda were on table for discussion.
"The matters having financial implications have been referred to the government for calculation of the financial burden in case of implementation and regularization of nurses as well as CGHS scale come under the same category," he said.
The matter of giving non-practicing allowance to RIMS doctors was also discussed but concluded without taking any concrete decision. The health department has sought a detail list of the clinical doctors at RIMS, who could be compensated for not practicing in private.
Major stress was laid upon approval of the act that is expected to govern RIMS.
"We have requested the health department to move a proposal in the assembly and seek nod of the House for the regulations under which RIMS would function," Mahto said.
Discussing yet another issue, the governing council decided to carry out essential formalities for making the dental college functional, building and other infrastructure for which is already complete.
Appointment process for doctors against 125 posts was considered in the meet whereas the members rejected the proposal for adopting fixed tenure for tutors in the hospital. source-timesofindia.indiatimes.com
