[ZESTCaste] Mayawati govt sacks over 1,000 doctors

Mayawati govt sacks over 1,000 doctors


Lucknow: The Uttar Pradesh government on Friday ordered sacking of as
many as 1,058 doctors for "absconding" from duty.

According to Principal Health Secretary Pradeep Shukla, the doctors
were "absent from their duties for months and even years".

"The decision to terminate their services was taken after we had made
all efforts to get across to them," he said.

The exercise to detect the errant doctors was initiated by the
Mayawati government more than a year ago, following which notices were
issued by the directorate of medical and health services to each of
the defaulters.

"When the notices failed to elicit any response from the doctors, the
medical and health services director general got these notices
published in different newspapers too; yet there was no response.
Hence we resolved to take the final step of dismissing them," Shukla

"Some of the doctors were found to have drawn salaries for months
after they absconded from duty," he added.

"The government is in the process of undertaking a recruitment drive
to appoint 2,500 new doctors to meet the requirements of the state,"
Shukla said.
