Service Doctors up in arms against Central Government on NPA issue

New Delhi: Service doctors in the country are up in arms against central government for delinking of Non Practising allowance (NPA) from basic pay. On July 16, service doctors organizations’ joint council JACSDO in its GBM alleged that the government is out to destroy government hospitals which are already in mess. They warned that this action of government would subvert the aims of Govt’s much flaunted national health policy. They threatened direct actions against government’s arbitrary actions.

Dr Rajeev Sood, Chairman, JACSDO (Joint Action Council of Service Doctors’ Organization), in a press conference, said, ‘that the government’s stance on NPA would ruin the public health system in the country. He said service doctors in the country are much miffed by it and are in a mood to fight it out.’ He said there is massive unrest among service doctors at this stance of the government.’

Blaming the government and bureaucracy squarely for the plight of public sector healthcare, Dr Sood further said, ‘The recommendations of 7th Central Pay Commission have destroyed the aspirations of thousands of doctors working in public health sector. Now the committee on allowance has accepted the reduction of None Practising Allowance (NPA) against all laws, rules and guidelines, and treating NPA as an allowance instead of basic pay against all administrative and Supreme Court and High Court orders. It seems 7th Central Pay Commission and current Government both have turned hostile to doctors and are indifferent to the deteriorating health care personnel.’
