HC relief to PGIMS Rohtak Senior Resident Doctor not paid salary for more than a year now
Dr Vijay Ahlawat filed a petition seeking a direction to release his salary from June 2019.
Punjab: Considering the matter as highly unfortunate, the Punjab and Haryana High Court recently directed Civil Hospital at Charkhi Dadri to release the concerned documents so that the outstanding salary of a Senior resident doctor presently attached to Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), Rohtak, can be paid.
Responding to the submissions, the Advocates presenting the respondent informed the court that the institution has already asked the Civil Hospital to submit relevant documents connected with the issue and they also directed the hospital to send the last pay certificate which is necessary for the release of the salary. The counsel for the institution argued that the petitioner had an extraordinary leave and hence salary is yet to be paid for the last three or four months.
"He has admittedly not been paid salary for the last several months, which is rather unfortunate. He is being made to run around several departments for completing the papers."
