FORDA rejects the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission

FORDA rejects the recommendations of 7th Pay Commission

Federation of Resident Doctors association organised a press conference today strongly opposing the recommendations of the 7th pay commission on reducing the percentage of NPA from 25% to 20% and removing it from the calculations of HRA for doctors. With the implications of the 7th Pay commission recommendation sealing the fate of doctors for the next 10 years, doctors are fearing a comparative fall in remuneration in the face of rising prices

Speaking on behalf of the resident doctors working across the country, Dr Pankaj Solanki, President FORDA said, ” This will be a great blow on the retention of good doctors in government sector. Already, there is a big exodus of doctors with skill,experience and research acumen from the government sector. The Present Pay recommendation if accepted, will become a great hindrance to persons with skill to join and continue in government.”

He also pointed out growing discrepancy between the remuneration of the doctors working in the government sector and doctors working in the private sector. For example, the pay of an assistant professor at Government Medical College in Delhi starts with Rs 85,000 p.m, while the pay of a junior consultant ( equivalent in degree and position ) in a private hospital in Delhi is Rs 2- 2.5 Lakhs pm . With this pay commission, there will be a higher discrepancy between government and private doctors.

Dr Ravinder Chauhan, General Secretary, FORDA mentioned, ” This pay commission has been particularly discriminating to doctors. FORDA strongly rejects this pay commission report on behalf of the medical profession, as it is strongly discriminatory in its recommendations and has got no visionary approach and shall cause strong deficit in quality of services and cause administrative difficulties.”

    govt is most of the discriminatory with doctors when comes to pay scale forgetting that the doctors are the only professional who have work day in and day out with other loaded work of medico legal , vip duties etc and taking all the risk of getting life threatening disease from contact with patients and also threat of consumer court but has to take decision on the spot with limited infrastructure .

  5. Doctors working in rural area are given less HRA and less transport allowance. Whereas the price of petrol/diesel remains the same for both rural /urban India. And the houses for rent in the rural areas are also not cheap as thought by the commission.

    So in order to encourage doctors serving in rural area let they be paid ‘RURAL SERVICE ALLOWANCE’ so that more doctors in urban are attracted to work in rural areas.
