Bowing to the demand of the Provincial Medical Health Services (PMHS)- the association of government doctors- the state government on Tuesday granted one time relaxation for compulsion of services in mountainous areas in the Dynamic Assured Career Progression ( DACP). The Government Order (GO) for one time relaxation has been issued by the secretary health services Nitesh Jha. The state cabinet in its decision on December 26 had given its approval for one time relaxation in DACP.
The president of PMHS, Dr D P Joshi said that the association has welcomed the decision. He said that unconditional and across the board implementation of DACP was one of the major demand of the DACP and the government deserves appreciation for understanding the position of doctors on the issue.
Fulfilling the long- standing demand of the doctors, the state government in 2016 had implemented DACP. It, however, had incorporated clause of compulsory hill posting at every assured increase of grade pays while implementing DACP.
DACP means assured increase in the grade pay of the doctors after 4, 9, 13 and 20 years of the service, irrespective of whether they get promotions or not.
As per the clause of mountainous service, the doctors should serve for a period of 2, 4, 5 and 9 years in the hospitals located in the mountainous areas to be eligible for promotions at end of 4, 9, 13 and 20 years of service.
