Mumbai: The state cabinet on Wednesday cleared the 35 per cent non-practicing allowance (NPA) for teachers in government medical colleges in cities and 50 per cent NPA for rural medical college teachers.
The Maharashtra State Medical Teachers Association (MSMTA) had long been demanding the NPA. MSMTA president Dr Ram Raje and vice president Dr Sameer Golawar have welcomed the state cabinet’s decision.
The government has also promised to bring a resolution in this effect at the earliest. The medical teachers will start getting the NPA only after the government issues the resolution. [Source: ToI]
