Some people with vested interests can’t force the Dept. to appoint particular junior doctor as Administrator.
Srinagar: Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) welcomes the steps taken by the administrative department of Health and Medical Education(H&ME) department directly under the supervision of K Vijay Kumar and Principal secrtary, Atal Dulo about restoration of administrative seniority in health department which will enthuse new energy and confidence among medical officers and Consultants. Even though the pace in restoration of Administrative seniority is slow, doctors across the state hope that the steps so initiated in last couple of months will be taken to logical end.
President, DAK, Dr Suhail Naik said that “DAK has been time and again demanded the restoration of administrative seniority in health deparment as per rules and regulations drafted strictly in recruitment rules for appointing such officers”. Dr Naik added that, “In peripheral hospitals it has been observed that it becomes difficult for senior doctors to work under administrative officers who are junior to them which leads to indiscipline and unworthy work culture”.
General Secretary DAK, Dr Owais H Dar further added that, “restoration of administrative seniority is prior and 1st step in giving away with in-charge system as it is only possible that administrative officers can be confirmed after due process is followed laid under recruitment rules. Once confirmed administarive officers are set in place, the undue political interference in health department at local levels can be avoided to large extent”.
Meawhile it has been brought in notice of the association that some junior doctors for their vested interests are using their relatives to garner support in front of higher ups so that they can be again re-appointed as administrators in health department. We request the authorities that neither any relative of any doctor nor general public must influence or interfare in appointing any junior doctor as administrator, this can not be accepted nor tolerated.
Doctors Association Kashmir (DAK) urges Hon’ble Advisor, K Vijay Kumar and worthy Principal Secretary HME, Attal Dullo to further look into the matter and bring some pace in restoration of Administrative Seniority in Health Department as per recruitment rules so that this long pending demand of the doctors is met once for all.
