Salary hike in medical colleges to cost Rs.912 Million
New Delhi: The central government has decided to hike the salary of doctors at all autonomous medical colleges, a decision that will cost the exchequer 912 million every year.

"The revised pay scales will be effective from 1.1.2006 and other allowances from 1.09.2008 and pay of existing incumbents will be fixed as per the formula given in the (Central Civil Services) CCS (Revised Pay) Rules, 2008," the health ministry said Wednesday.

A ministry official said the decision which has been approved by the cabinet will benefit 2,420 faculty members. "The financial implication for the budget is 91.20 crore annually," he added.

The health ministry said the regional Institute of Medical Sciences in Imphal, Manipur and LGB Regional Institute of Mental Health in Tezpur, Assam have been taken over by the ministry in 2007 from the North Eastern Council and are currently affiliated to local universities.

"Faculty members of these two institutions will be given University Grants Commission (UGC) pay scales," the official added.

1: This decision is idoitic and misuse of executive powers. 'Brain? drain' will not be stopped. (As if doctors only have brains, and the rest live on battery run gadgets). A miniscule percentage of this befooled nation's population is garnering almost 100% of the national resources. Starting from the govt. peon to the IAS officers are living in kingly luxury. This started within a few years of the departure of the British. Since I come from a family having senior bureaucrats and doctors and engineers, I can say with fully certainity that all the govt. paid persons are simply looting the nation. As to the doctors, beign different and above the rest is also a idiotic concept. They also need to be bridled and brought back to their senses. In terms of intelluct, they do not come to much. The knowledge is confined to what is written in medical textbooks, and as a person who has done content deveolpment for such book, I can assure that the themes inside are not of devine standards, but only things that anyone with good English standards can understand. Many doctors cant even speak English properly, let alone understand things outside their textbooks.
As to UK and other nations taking them, the fact is that even Indian carpenters will be equally good over there.

2: It is a welcomed move from Govt as doctors who are indulged in private practise will definately stop their PP and pay more attention to their work in Govt. medical colleges and hospitals in the benefit of poor patients.

3: Govt is spending so much, but some doctors still got attracted towards UK and States by the name of higher studies. The irony is that, they do not come back again to India('Brain Drain'). Can govt control their smooth movement to foreign by restricting them to work in India for at least 3-4 years.
