Govt eases appointment process of Registrars,Tutors
Doctors Not In Govt Service Can Also Compete For Posts
Jammu, Jan 29: State government today amended the Jammu and Kashmir Medical Education (Gazetted) Service Recruitment Rules, 1979, and Jammu and Kashmir Dental Education (Gazetted) Service Recruitment Rules, 1993, in order to overcome the shortage of Registrars/Demonstrators in Medical Education Department.
Officials said the service rules have been amended in order to provide an easy mechanism to appoint Demonstrators, Tutors and Registrars in the government medical and dental colleges of the state.
The amended rules now enable the department to attract more medicos for the posts of Registrars/Demonstrators/Tutors. The department can now get Registrars from ‘open market’ also, instead of only deputation of doctors from health services, officials said.
Elaborating, officials said even the candidates not in government services, but having requisite qualification in the specialty as recognized by Medical Council of India, can be engaged on the posts for a specified period on consolidated pay. The selection will be made on merit by a Selection Committee of the concerned medical college.
Hitherto, Registrars were only selected from amongst the doctors serving in Health department for a specified period.
The amendments came into force following issuance of SRO 24 and SRO 25 of 2013 issued by Governor NN Vohra in exercise of the powers conferred by proviso to Section 124 of the Constitution of Jammu and Kashmir.
It was learnt that medical faculty in the state had raised serious concern over the shortage of Demonstrators and Registrars in the dental and medical colleges and it was pointed out that the posts remain vacant because of dearth of Medical Officers in Health Services from where these doctors are posted on deputation basis as Registrars/Demonstrators in Government Medical Colleges Jammu and Srinagar.
“The faculty members took up the matter with Taj Mohi-ud-Din soon after he took over as Minister for Medical Education,” sources in GMC Jammu told Greater Kashmir. They added that following the meeting, the state government sent a proposal to Raj Bhawan seeking amendment in the existing recruitment rules.
“Presently we have around 300-400 posts of Registrars vacant in the department and it is adversely affecting the quality of medical education,” Minister for Medical Education Taj Mohi-ud-Din told Greater Kashmir.
He said with the amendments in the recruitment rules the department is expecting to fill up the vacancies on war footing. “We may also go for change in the pay band of Registrars so as to attract more medicos for the job,” he said.
