406 teaching positions vacant in GMCs Srinagar, Jammu
AILING HEALTH SECTOR
Jammu, June 2: Two premier Government Medical Colleges of Srinagar and Jammu are functioning short of 406 faculty positions against the sanctioned strength of 792 posts – portraying another major lapse in the state’s health sector.
Sources said that the two premier institutions of medical education are facing acute shortage of faculty members including Professors, Assistant Professors and Associate Professors as the government has failed to meet the sanctioned strength for last many years.
They revealed that out of 291 sanctioned posts for GMC Jammu and 501 posts for GMC Srinagar, nearly 406 posts of faculty members in the two institutions are lying vacant for many years as the recruiting agencies have allegedly failed to speed up the recruitment process.
Informed sources further disclosed that in Government Medical College Jammu out of 48 sanctioned posts of Professors 26 are vacant. Also against the sanctioned strength of 49 Associate Professors for various disciplines, about 23 posts are vacant. As far as posts of Assistant Professors are concerned, out of 67 sanctioned posts 34 are lying vacant.
Likewise, against 127 sanctioned posts of Lecturers, 23 posts are vacant in GMC Jammu.
Similarly, in Government Medical College Srinagar out of 501 sanctioned posts, a whopping 300 posts are lying vacant.
So far as the strength of Professors is concerned, the medical college has almost a negligible number of only five professors against 69 sanctioned posts, while out of 74 posts of Associate Professors, 40 posts are lying vacant at the moment.
The position of Assistant Professors is no better as against the sanctioned number of 125 posts 72 are lying vacant and at Lecturer level, out of 232 sanctioned posts 124 posts are lying vacant.
Commissioner/Secretary to Government, Health and Medical Education department, M K Dwivedi said that he would look into the matter as he is new in the office. He added that the government was mulling to fill up 150 posts of faculty members shortly to improve the standard of medical education in the state.
