AIIMS New Delhi: Administration warns Assistant Professor over Indecent Behaviour with Head of Department


AIIMS New Delhi: Administration warns Assistant Professor over Indecent Behaviour with Head of Department

According to a memorandum issued by AIIMS recently, the HOD accused the Assistant Professor of the same department of harassment and indecent and threatening behaviour last year.

New Delhi: The All India Institutes of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) administration has issued a warning to an Assistant Professor, who was found guilty of “unacceptable behaviour” towards a Head of the Department, stating the incident caused mental harassment to the victim.

The management has also extended the probation period of the doctor concerned by one year after which his performance and conduct will be reviewed by a committee headed by AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria for further course of action.

According to a memorandum issued by AIIMS recently, the HOD accused the Assistant Professor of the same department of harassment and indecent and threatening behaviour last year.

A committee was constituted in December to inquire into the complaint.

In its report submitted on May 23, the committee observed that there had been instances where the doctor made repeated mobile phone calls, even at odd hours, for trivial causes and indulged in unnecessary correspondence to such an extent that the woman faculty felt threatened and approached police for protection.

“His hostile attitude, indecent and arrogant behaviour with a senior faculty colleague, that too the head of the department, is unacceptable. This has caused mental harassment and perception of threat to her,” the committee said.

“The professor has failed to exercise restraint and exhibit civility which is essentially expected from a faculty member. He has behaved consistently in a way which is not acceptable from a faculty member of this institute with his senior female faculty member,” it said.

Following the committee’s report, the AIIMS director held a meeting and it was decided that the doctor concerned may be issued warning and disciplinary action may be taken against him in the form of extension of probation period by one year, with provision to review his performance at the end of the extended probation to further decide on extending the period.

Meanwhile, the court of Special Executive Magistrate has asked the assistant professor to furnish a bond of Rs 10,000 as an undertaking to maintain peace in connection with the complaint lodged against him with the police.

  1. Appreciate the decision taken by the Director AIIMS. Such issues are not addressed in JIPMER inspite of complaints and HOD is disrespected by the junior faculty for trivial issues and one of the major issue is temporary 3 year post of HOD due to rotation . The administration yeilding to Recommendations and Political pressures and the decisions are not evidence based

    THAT IS BEAUTY OF OF REPUTED INSTITUTIONS LIKE AIIMS, PGI CHANDIGARH, JIPMER, NIMANHS, MANIPAL UNIVERSITY MANY OTHERS ( RATHER FEW). WHERE ARE THE MAJORITY AUTONOUS GOVERNMENT COLLEGES ACROSS KAR NATAKA , THE JUNIOR DOCTORS ARE GIVEN UNDUE IMPORTANCE BY THE SO CALLED HIGHER AUTHORITIES, THEY HAVE GIVEN ALL THE FREEDOM TO RUN THEIR PRIVATE PRATICES – CLINICS, NURSING HOMES, HOSPITALS, LABORATORIES AND SCANNING CENTRES. THERE ARE SEVERAL ADVANTAGES FOR THE LOCAL DOCTORS BEING A PART OF AUTONOMOUS TEACHING MEDICAL COLLEGE HOSPITALS . THEY CAN GET THE JOB WITH VARIOUS MEANS ( EASY MEANS). THEY HAVE AN ADVANTAGE OF CASTE, COMMUNITY, REGION, LANGUAGE AND RELIGION. THEY GET SUPPORT OF THE POLITICIANS – THE POLITICIANS QUEUE TO CUTT THE RIBBONS OF THEIR PRIVATE ESTABLISHMENTS. ( Clear cut indicative love, liking, licking , looking after ). THIS CREATES KIND FEAR AMONGST THE POOR, INNOCENT, HELPLESS, UNDERPRIVILEGED, PUBLIC ( THEY DON\’T DARE TO COMPLAIN). THESE /SUCH DOCTOR\’S CONFIDENCE INCREASES MANY FOLDS LIKE THAT OF A MAFIAS ( IRRESPECTIVE OF POLITICAL PARTIES IN POWER THEIR PRIVATE PRATICE FLORISH). THEN ECONOMY GROWS MANY FOLDS BIGGER THAN THEIR HODs , SO ALSO THEIR ARROGANCE, ATTITUDE AND BEHAVIOUR.( DON\’T GIVE DAMN ). THEY BOAST ABOUT THAT & THIS MINISTER VISITING THEIR HOUSE FOR BREAKFAST, LUNCH & DINNER AND ANY THING ELSE I DON\’T KNOW ?. AND THESE GUYS HAVE LEARNT THE DIRTY TRICKS OF POCKETING STUDENTS , BY GIVING ATTENDENCE, ASSESSMENT MARKS , FREEDOM TO FREAK OUT ( CHEAPEST WAY TO POCKET ) . THE HOSPITAL RECORDS ARE PERFECT WAY TO JUDGE THE TRUE PICTURE . AND THE GOOD NUMBER OF PATIENTS ARE MADE TO DISAPPER TO NEAR BY ESTABLISHMENTS RUN BY THESE ROUGES – WITH HEAVY ADVERTISEMENT OF DOING ALL KINDS OF PROCEDURES, OPERATIONS ,WHICH ARE NEVER TO BE DONE IN THE SO CALLED TEACHING ( CHEATING) MEDICAL COLLEGE HOSPITALS, FOR WHICH THE GOVERNMENT HAS SPENT HUNDREDS OF CRORES OF RUPPEES. ( JUST GOING THE DRAIN…….DUE TO THE TO DUE DIRTY ATTITUDE OF THE BABUS THE BUEROCRATES SITTING IN AIR CONDITION CHAMBERS OF THE STATE CAPITAL. WHEN EVER I TRIED TO BRING TO THEIR NOTICE , THEY BEHAVED IN MOST AWKWARD WAY – DISGUSTING ). WITH MY DARING DECISION , I FILED SEVRAL COMPLAINTS with out any out come. Even the court cases are catching dust. I AM LOOKING FOR RIGHT SUGGESTIONS .
