Discrepancies in Salaries of PG, DNB,FNB Resident Doctors: Govt asks MS, Deans to Intervene

New Delhi: With the PG resident doctors in the capital highlighting the huge discrepancies in the pay packages received by them, the Delhi Government has now asked the medical directors/medical superintendents/deans at Delhi government hospitals to look into the matter

However, in most places, the full implementation is yet to take effect, with PG, DNB and FNB residents doctors getting pay that is much less than what they should be getting.

” We had a meeting with Sri Manoj Tiwary ji, President, Delhi BJP. We raised the issue of discrepancy in the payment of salaries of PG, DNB and FNB residents working in various Government hospitals of Delhi. For quite some time, they have receiving salaries which is not in accordance with the 7th Pay Commission recommendations. We also raised the issue of delay in payment of salaries of doctors working in MCD hospitals. Also, there are discrepancies in the payment of salaries of doctors working there where apart from resident doctors, even assistant professors are not getting salaries as per norms,” Dr Vivek Chouksey, President FORDA informed Medical Dialogues team

FORDA also raised a complaint on the CM portal following which the Delhi Government has asked the Deans/Medical Directors/Medical Superintendents to look into the matter.

    Doctors holding permanent govt Post are entiteled for salaries and allowances. Discrepancies in salary can exist for Doctors holding temporary tenure post in Hospitals of Govt or Semi govt.

  2. MS/ MD after an entrance examination is an easy ball game. Safe environment to appear in final examination, lot of internal, inhospitable help, internal examiners, no separate theory examination pressure; all these student friendly things make it easily achievable target. On the contrary DNB, with no mentor, an all India examination, Clinical examination thousands of mile away, being judged by many a time by hostile examiners with MD/ MS background, separate theory examination which is must before appearing for clinical examination make it as one of the toughest examination process to pass. DNB PGs should be a priority rather than getting less. Now with the upcoming NMC things may improve.

  3. For rather obvious reasons the MCI establishment looks down on DNB holders. Mess up about full equivalence to regular PG degrees (MD/MS and DM/MCh) is well known and the Government had to crack down. So this mess up is not unexpected.

  4. Hoping all get their rightful dues in tyme .
    Best Wishes for justification!
