Strike call withdrawn by RIMS junior docs

Junior doctors at the Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) have withdrawn their call for strike from Saturday after their demands were conceded to by the administration on Friday.

RIMS Junior Doctors' Association president Samuel Shyam said, "We have been informed by the administration that our salary for April and May will be paid in full." Along with 300-odd junior doctors, 400-odd senior doctors have not been paid either their salaries or their non-practising-allowance (NPA) for April and May.

The junior doctors had worn black badges at workplace on Thursday in a show of agitation demanding payment of their NPA along with their salaries. On Thursday, the doctors had given a 24-hour ultimatum to the RIMS administration to take a final decision or they will go on strike.

RIMS director Tulsi Mahto, however, did not confirm the development. "All I can say now is we are sorting out the things."

Jharkhand's principal health secretary K Vidyasagar had visited junior doctors at the RIMS on Thursday. The principal secretary had assured doctors that he would look into their demands. source-articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com
