ANIIMS grants summer vacation to teaching faculty after uproar over no leaves
Port Blair: Through a recent circular, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands Institute of Medical Sciences (ANIIMS) has announced summer vacation for the teaching faculty members from 22nd July 2021 to 28 August 2021.
The recently issued circular stated, " In view of the ongoing covid-19 pandemic situation, we may allow all teaching faculty to avail only 15 days summer vacation between 22nd July 2021 to 28 August 2021 in such a way that at least 50% of the faculty at present in their respective department at any time during the vacation period. On completion of 15 days of vacation, all the faculties should report back to duty."
This comes days after the faculty members expressed their dissatisfaction over the fact that despite a decline in Covid-19 cases, doctors of ANIIMS were not being allowed leaves nor the authorities were converting it into Earned Leaves (EL).
