Dehradun: After giving the bonded doctors an ultimatum, now the Department of Medical Health and Family Welfare, Uttarakhand has published the list of absent doctors who are yet to fulfill their bond conditions.

The list, published on May 19, 2022 by the authorities, contains the names of around 369 such absent doctors who had been posted in various medical units of Uttarakhand. However, the doctors remained absent from their place of posting.
Although the colleges had informed about the absent doctors to the State DME last year, the matter is yet to be resolved and now the State Government has published the names of the doctors to remind them that they are yet to fulfill their bond conditions. These doctors have now been given an 15-day ultimatum by the government
Medical Dialogues had recently reported that the Uttarakhand State Health Department had issued an ultimatum to the absent doctors, who were bonded either on contractual or permanent basis, to either join duties or submit the penalty amount for avoiding bond service within 15 days from the publication of the notice.
Apart from this, notice had also been issued to all those bonded doctors who are absent from their place of posting, as the State asked them to ensure to be present in the Directorate General regarding their absence with evidence within 5 days from the date of publication of the notice published on May 5.
Before the 15 days ultimatum could be over, the Department of Medical Education of Uttarakhand has now published the list of around 369 absent doctors who have not yet fulfilled their bond terms.
Although the list has been published recently, originally it was sent by GMC Haldwani and GMC Srinagar to the DME last year. In that letter, the colleges had mentioned that in respect of the absent doctors, objection had been lodged by the audit team. The list was sent to the DME so that the authorities could take action and recover the security bond filled by the absentee doctors.
However, in the notice issued on May 5, the State Health Department has given an alternative for the doctors who are unwilling to serve as per the bond conditions. As per the notice, the doctors can be freed from the liabilities of bond service by submitting the penalty amount to the principal of Government Medical College, Srinagar and Government Medical College, Haldwani.
