Tamil Nadu Stipend Hike: CRRIs to get Rs 20,000, PG, SS medicos also get raise

The payment will be with effect from April 2018

Chennai: Finding the demand for ‘stipend hike’ genuine, the state government has raised the salaries of medicos in Under-Graduate (UG), Post-graduate (PG) and super speciality courses. The hike has also been granted to nurses working on a contract basis.

Last year, more than 3,000 contract nurses struck work demanding higher pay scale. Whereas this June, PG students along with UG residents and super speciality students had given a call for a strike if the government does not increase their stipends.

At that time, Director of Medical Education, Dr A Edwin Joe informed that a study by his department revealed that house surgeons, PG students, and super speciality students were receiving the lowest in the state of Tamil Nadu.

The New Indian Express reports the increase in the monthly stipend as follows:-

  • First Year PG degree students will get a raise from Rs 25,000 to Rs 35,000, Second year- Rs 26,000 to Rs 37,500, Third year -Rs 27,000 to Rs 40,000,
  • First-year PG diploma students will get a raise from Rs 25,000 to Rs 35,000, Second year- Rs 26,000 to Rs 37,500,

  • Stipend of CRRIs will be raised from Rs 13,000 to Rs 20,000, also CRRIs and for non-service doctors- Increase of Rs 600 and Rs 1,000 annually.

Meanwhile, for the nurses working on a contractual basis, the state has nearly doubled their salary from a consolidated pay of Rs 7,700 per month to a take-home salary of Rs 14,000 per month.

  1. Moogambakai medical college, kulasekaram, Tamil Nadu a privately owned college is not paying their PG students any stipend at all. They harass their NEET students for extra money, and play menace with the attendance of students if donation is not paid. Forget the 40000 Rs. All their PG students are labouring their life for free. Working 24 hours or more, poor internet, no vehicles and so much more. Casual sexism is common. The college management is so smart that they open bank account and deposits the salary and force their students to give signed blank cheques and take the money back. Wait, you or the students can\’t say anything because they will just suspend the students and reduce their attendance. This is exactly what\’s wrong with our system, things like this happen and people stay quite because they are scared to talk back.

  2. Tamilnadu government is giving peanuts to medicos.

  3. Tamil nadi is govind pranit to medicos
