Bhopal: Specialised doctors have raised questions on the appointment process by health department at the counselling of doctors selected through PSC at Satpura Bhawan on Monday.
The health department is conducting counselling for the appointment of doctors. In 2015, the PSC had conducted examination to recruit doctors. In the exam around 700 doctors had qualified in the exam.
Earlier, the department had conducted two rounds of online counselling of Medical Officers (MO), but for unknown reasons further process was cancelled. On Monday, the department conducted offline counselling, but only specialist doctors (PGMO) are called for the recruitment in 135 vacant posts. On anonymity one of the candidates alleged that those posts which were shown in the second round of counselling were not shown vacant in offline counselling.
Like the post of pathologist was shown vacant in Sanyogitaganj Hospital Indore was not available in offline counselling.
Similarly, many posts are vacant in hospitals of Bhopal are not shown in the counselling, in JP Hospital itself three posts of ophthalmologist, one radiologist, one ENT, two anaesthesia and two post of pathologist are vacant, but it is not shown in the vacant list.
The recruitment process has also evoked one more irregularity, as the post through PSC was issued against the recruitment of MOs, but if the PGMOs will be recruited against the MO post, the right of MO candidate will be going to end forever.
Due to unwise decision of recruiting only PGMO and giving them unwanted places, most of the PGMOs will not going to join the post.
The PGMOs also alleged that they will be going to get the status of MO and they will going to work as a specialist in the hospital. They will not going to get the salary of the PGMOs, but have the responsibility of PGMO.
The candidates have demanded to cancel the recruitment process and to established the new online recruitment process, with full transparency.
