BHOPAL : The resident doctors of Bhopal Memorial Hospital and Research Centre (BMHRC) are still very much confused about rules and regulations about their promotion and other incentives because of which they are facing dilemma.
Almost a month ago, they were about to go on strike but after a meeting of ministry of health, they postponed the strike. But still nothing has been done. The doctors are in dark about the promotion, incentives and perks accordingly.
Similarly, there is a similar condition of resident doctors in All India Institute Medical Science (AIIMS) as they have also been demanding fixation of the service rules.
At present, the uncertainty looms large over job and career in the profession for the resident doctors in both the premier hospitals.
Dr Lalit Kumar, president of association of resident doctors of BMHRC, said, “A month ago, we had a meeting with Union health ministry and we were assured that some concrete decision would be taken within a month. So we postponed the proposed strike. But still nothing has been done. As there are no service rules about our work and promotion after the appointment, so we do not know about the future of out jobs. Government should come out with clear cut policy about the rules and regulations. Since we have been appointed through normal process, we do not know about any policy for our promotion and other benefits. Once the rules are clear, we would be able to know about our rights in medical profession. “
