Junior doctors on strike at PMCH



"All work at emergency as well as general wards are badly affected due to the strike by junior doctors," PMCH Superintendent O P Choudhary told PTI.
The junior doctors are, however, yet to submit any written demand to the PMCH authorities, he said.
When contacted Junior Doctors' Association president Rajiv Babu said, "the strike is peaceful. We are not resorting to any kind of violent protest like locking the departments."

Babu said the post-graduate doctors, who constitute 90 per cent of the staff of doctors in the PMCH, want introduction of salary system instead of stipend.
"We are getting Rs 13,000, Rs 14,000 and Rs 15,000 for first, second and third year of the post graduate course respectively. This amount is less than what the junior doctors get in other states and so we are demanding salary and related facilities," he said.
