Govt approves stipend of SKIMS Registrars, Tutor, demonstrators

Srinagar, Jun 6: Government on Wednesday approved stipend of Resident Doctors, Registrars, tutors and demonstrators of SKIMS Medical College at par with GMC Jammu and GMC Srinagar, thereby addressing the disparity.
According to the order issued under 48-SKIMS of 2018, dated June 06, 2018, “sanction is hereby accorded to the revision of stipend of tenure based Registrars, senior Residents, Tutors, Demonstrators of SKIMS Medical college, Hospital Bemina, Srinagar and it shall be paid as per Government order no 596-HME of 2017 dated 25-10-2017 as applicable to Government Medical college, Srinagar and Jammu.”
However, the administration has castigated the protest by the doctors, saying that patients were being forced to suffer in the sacred month of Ramadhan.
The administration said that the doctors should not have gone for the strike in this month as it left hundreds of patients as well as attendants to suffer. (KNS)
