The resident doctors of the capital’s Hindu Rao Hospital have been on strike in support of their demand for payment of back wages since November 23, 2021.

 

We have not been paid for the last two months and arrears are pending since July this year, the doctors said.

Earlier in a letter to the Medical Superintendent on November 17, 2021, the Resident Doctors’ Association of the hospital had conveyed their decision to defer the strike scheduled to be held from November 18 after the hospital authorities’ assurances of releasing their pending salary and arrears within 2-3 days.

Talks between the agitating doctors and the authorities remained inconclusive due to lack of funds, the doctors said.

Meanwhile, the Federation of Resident Doctors Association of India (FORDA) has written to the Lt Governor of Delhi urging his intervention to resolve the issue.

In its letter to the Lt Governor of Delhi Anil Baijal, FORDA pointed out that the doctors of North MCD Hospitals have regularly faced delays in receiving salaries for years and following multiple protests last year, were assured by concerned authorities of no such delay will happen in future.

“Resident Doctors have been pursuing the Hospital authorities for months, without any fruitful outcome which has ultimately forced them to go for Indefinite Protest since November 23,” the letter said.
