Himachal Pradesh Medical Officer’s Association (HMOA) asked the Chief Minister Virbhadra Singh to grant four tier pay scale to all the Medical Officers and count the adhoc/contract/RKS service for the 4-9-14 years of service.
HMOA’s request the Chief Minister not to grant extension to the Medical Officer who are working as Chief Medical Officer or those who are on administrative post. The members of the Association suggested giving re-employment to the Medical Officer as Specialist or as Medical Office after retirement in public interest. HMOA request the Govt that regular DPC should be held to the post of Jt DHS, CMO’s/Dy Directors and BMO’s as most of posts are lying vacant for last one year or getting vacant due to the retirement of Chief Medical Officers and which is causing stagnation in the cadre. HMOA requests govt. that criteria for the seniority should be based on public service commission.
HMOA also requested the Chief Minister to increase the Post graduation seats for regular Medical Officers to at least 75-80%, which has been presently reduced to 66% from 90% thus causing frustration in regular candidates and no person would prefer to join services in periphery of state.
