Maha: ASMI writes to CM demanding Rs 50,000 stipend for MBBS Interns on COVID duty in GMCs
Maharastra: The Association of State Medical Interns Maharashtra (ASMI) has recently written to the Chief Minister of Maharashtra seeking COVID duty incentive for Government College MBBS interns. The medicos have demanded to pay them a monthly stipend of Rs 50,000 during the pandemic.
Stressing on equal pay for equal work for the interns who are working day and night in COVID facilities, ASMI has asked to initiate a hike in stipend as the interns are presently getting a sum of Rs 11000 per month. In the letter, they mentioned that BMC interns are getting 50000 per month plus 300 rupees daily allowance and UG volunteers are getting 30000 per month. Hence the state medical interns have also demanded a hike from 11000 to 50000 per month.
