RIMS - five doctors this year to resign while three others have applied for voluntary retirement

The doctors at Rajendra Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) are an unhappy lot following the reluctance of the administration to fulfil many of their demands, including non-payment of non-practicing allowance (NPA), promotions due for several years, among others. The disgruntlement has compelled five doctors this year to resign while three others have applied for voluntary retirement scheme (VRS) and many others are already looking for better options.

 
"The doctors are in an agitated mood here as their demands have not been heard by the director and the state health department. The NPA has been stopped since June and nothing has been done till now for its payment. We started a signature campaign related to the demands last week which RIMS director Tulsi Mahto himself submitted to health minister Hemlal Murmu and principal secretary K Vidyasagar. As per norms the institute has been given the stature of AIIMS, Delhi, then why not the salary and perks the same which we all deserve," said assistant professor, department of anaesthology, Dr Praveen Tiwary.
 

He added, "It's only the director, senior resident and post-graduate students who are getting the pay and perks according to the AIIMS level. The rest here are given salary as per the state government rules. Apart from this there is discrimination in salary between the same post doctors hold in different departments. The Dynamic Assured Career promotion (ACP) benefits for doctors is also an issue but its only assurances which have been h given to us." source-articles.timesofindia.indiatimes.com
