Doctors at North MCD hospitals say not paid for over 2 months
As the city battles Covid-19 cases, healthcare workers at North MCD hospitals, polyclinics and maternity homes allege that they have not been paid for at least two months. Recently, news emerged that salary arrears for the past three months have not been credited to more than 3,000 health workers under the North MCD. The MCD addressed in its letter that doctors are not only getting exposed to Corona infection but also many of them have tested Corona positive. Under such stressful situations, doctors have been put under avoidable additional mental stresses and distractions due to non-payment of their salaries. The associations requested the PM to look into the matter and intervene on an urgent basis so that these corona-warriors get the salary of last 2 months along with the arrears at the earliest so that they can perform their duties relentlessly without any stress.
