Tamil Nadu Government Doctors' Association's plea

MADURAI: The Tamil Nadu Government Doctors' Association (TNGDA) has thanked the State Government for abolishing recruitment of doctors on contract.

In a statement issued here on Tuesday, S. Somasundaram, president of Madurai district unit of the association, urged the State Government to fill posts in medical colleges with assistant surgeons holding M.S. and M.D. degrees by discharging all medical consultants working on contract.

The association alleged that medical consultants on contract, with M.B.B.S. and diploma qualifications, were occupying specialist posts in medical colleges, which was "unjustified."

Counselling for doctors selected by Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission should be started only after transfer counselling by Director of Medical and Rural Health Services for assistant surgeons with the Directorate of Medical Service and Directorate of Primary Health Centres, it said.
