 New Delhi: The Delhi Cabinet on Tuesday approved a proposal to enhance the monthly remuneration of contractually engaged medical officers and specialists under the Delhi State Health Mission (DSHM), officials said.

There are around 2,600 contractual employees belonging to various fields such as medical, paramedical, managerial and support staff and all are contributing to the smooth functioning of the National Health Mission (NHM).

“The cabinet approved the health department’s proposal for the enhancement of monthly remuneration of contractually engaged medical officers and specialists under the Delhi State Health Mission (DSHM),” the Delhi government said in a statement.

These staffs were recruited according to the specific district/programme requirements and are working at the state and district-level administrative units and health facilities, it said.
