Munger: Taking a strong action against government doctors for absenteeism at work, the District Magistrate of the Munger district is reported to have ordered Civil Surgeon at Sadar hospital to issue a show cause notice and withhold salaries of  5 doctors at the hospital for dereliction of duty.

It is reported that the civil surgeon visited the hospital as a part of surprise inspection, finding various discrepancies in the functioning of the hospital. The 5 concerned doctors were conspicuous with their absence, while there were many who were reporting late to work. The observations were then recorded in a report to the District Magistrate, which finally led to this action.

The names of the five doctors against whom the District Magistrate’s office has taken action are:  Dr Raman Baranwal (physician), Dr RK Gupta (orthopaedic), Dr Rayees (eye), Dr Pankaj Kumar (physician) and Dr K Ranjan (physician).

    Sir, I\’m happy to learn the action taken by the authorities on the doctors on account of dereliction in their duties. Such actions are very much needed but the authorities should not wait till Hon\’ble Court gives direction. They can take the disciplinary action on such doctors and other staff. Unless such actions are taken things will not improve.
