Govt mulls common seniority for medical faculty
Srinagar, May 31: The Government on Tuesday decided to formulate a common seniority list of the faculty members of both the Government Medical Colleges in the state, an official spokesman said.
He said the decision to this effect was taken at a high level meeting convened to review the functioning of these prime medical institutions.
The Committee would be headed by Principal Secretary, Health and Medical Education, while as Commissioner Secretary, General Administration Department, Secretary, Law and Principals, Government Medical Colleges, Srinagar and Jammu will be its members.
The seniority of the faculty members of both the medical colleges would be amalgamated so that they may be transferred from one college to another. The modification of rules for contractual appointments of faculty members in GMCs and security arrangement were also discussed threadbare in the meeting.
Pertinently, the seniority of medical faculty in the two GMCs was bifurcated by PDP-Congress coalition government following the persistent demand of Medical Faculty Association GMC Srinagar as “their career prospects were being marred by common seniority.”
Minister for Medical Education R S Chib presided over the meeting. The meeting was attended by Principal Secretary, Health and Medical Education Suresh Kumar, Commissioner Secretary, General Administration Department M S Khan, Advocate General, J&K High Court, M I Qadri, Secretary, Law G H Tantray, Principals, Government medical Colleges, Srinagar and Jammu Dr Shahida Mir and Dr Rajinder Singh.
