After a strike by doctors, affecting medical services to a great extent, the Rajasthan government finally took a strict action of terminating admission of 583 resident doctors in PG first year. Strike by nearly 4000 resident doctors started on Monday, affecting the daily routines in many hospitals affiliated with colleges.
Now the government is planning to collaborate with many private medical colleges and will ask them to provide their services for the time being.
"The government will not let the residents affect medical services with their strike which was started without a notice," Health Minister Rajendra Rathore said.
He also mentioned that the 583 resident doctors (of PG first year) have been terminated and the state government will approach the Supreme Court to seek permission for new admission against their seats as the admissions to PG first year are conducted under the guideline of the apex court.
Soon the process to fill the vacant posts of assistant professors in the seven government medical colleges will initiate.
After the termination order, resident doctors are protesting against the decision to send their copies to other state for evaluation whereas the government said the guidelines of the Medical Council of India with regards to the examinations will have to be followed.
