Madurai: The Government Doctors’ Association has rejected the sixth pay commission salary hike announced by the government as their main demands had not been considered in the Pay Commission recommendations, state Secretary Senthil said.
Though the government had ordered implementation of the Sixth Pay Commission recommendations, our demands had not been met. “The anomalies were sought to be removed in the new fixation of pay scale. But the same has not been done. Till they are rectified we will not give our approval letter accepting the sixth pay commission recommendation,” he told reporters today.
“Till a new pay commission is appointed and our demands are accepted, the doctors at the Primary Health Centres, Medical College and government hospitals will not accept their pay,” he added.
