    It’s a good news that shows the worries of policy makers about the recruitment of faculty members at AIIMS New Delhi. It should be the foremost step to provide the better health care service to needy patients.
    It will be a pleasure of staff members if the respected parliamentary panel will ask to the MOHFW to fill up the vacancies of para-medical, technical and administrative / support staff at the earliest and clear the pending Departmental promotions through timely DPCs.
    The matter of Cadre Review and Model Recruitment Rules(RR) of all categories of staff at AIIMS/PGI Chandigarh/JIPMER Puducherry has also been pending since last many years.Six (6) new AIIMS are also eagerly waiting for revised Cadre Review and new RR to fill up their vacancies.
    Our honorable Health Minister is very active and positive approach person and he will definitely look into the matter at the earliest.
