Gujarat: Medical teachers on agitation path over pending demandsVadodara: Medical teachers of the Baroda Medical College (BMC) will hold a meeting on Monday to press for their long pending demands regarding salary revision, promotions and other issues.

The Gujarat Medical Teachers Association (GMTA) has been raising these demands since quite some time now, but the demands have remained unresolved. The demands include implementation of career advancement scheme, time-bound promotions and emolument issues including the rise in non-practising allowance in line with the seventh pay commission.

GMTA’s Vadodara unit will hold a meeting on Monday and decide on the future course of action regarding the demands. The doctors are particularly peeved at the government’s decision to increase emoluments of interns and resident doctors and ignore GMTA’s pending issues.

Sources said that the situation now is that a senior resident’s salary is higher than some assistant professors. The GMTA had earlier planned the agitation in March, but postponed it as Covid cases started rising. But with residents and interns having their way despite the pandemic, the teachers seem to have decided to go ahead with their agitation too.
