Maharashtra terminates services of 104 ‘absconding doctors’

Wednesday, January 4, 2017

Mumbai: The state government has terminated the services of 104 out of 581 ‘absconding doctors’, and has decided to sack the rest 477 government doctors who have remained absent from duty after joining the service, some for nearly 15 years, according to Health Minister Deepak Sawant.

“They (such doctors) come, appear for the interviews, collect their appointment letters and join the department. After a few days, they just leave. We are not able to stop them, nor can the courts. Ideally, they should submit their resignation before going,” said the health minister.

Such irresponsible behaviour created immense difficulties for the government in providing medical services and facilities to the poor and people in mofussil areas. Since the appointed doctors continued to remain on the records, the government could not show new vacancies or make fresh appointments, due to which the existing staffs were under severe strain, reports Business Standard.
