Government doctors plan fast

CHENNAI: Members of the Tamil Nadu Government Doctor’s Association said that they would go on a one-day fast, seeking the attention of the government to their demands for a pay hike.

At a press conference held here on Sunday, immediately after the State committee meeting of the association, the members demanded that the government doctors’ pay structure be revised on a par with the pay scale of the doctors of the Central government or at least on a par with the other States.

V. Palani, president of the association, said that while the entry level salary of the government doctors is Rs. 8,000, Karnataka has fixed the salary for entry level doctors at Rs. 14,000. The association wanted the government to constitute a special pay committee to amend the pay scale.
