Srinagar: Resident doctors in six hospitals associated with Government Medical College (GMC) Srinagar have decided to resume emergency duties from Saturday, following assurance by the administration to raise their salary as per recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission.
According to officials, all the suspension orders served on striking doctors will be revoked in due course of time.
“We have taken this decision in the greater public good. But we will continue to fight for our genuine demands. Routine work will continue to remain suspended,” a representative of Resident Doctors Association (RDA) said.
The indefinite strike of resident doctors began on Tuesday and badly affected emergency and routine work in all the six hospitals.
“Other demands of the doctors will also be considered soon,” Principal GMC Srinagar Dr Samia Rashid said.
A senior GMC Srinagar official said that the suspension orders served on the RDA leaders will be revoked after some days as there are some technical difficulties.
“They will also be reinstated soon after the technical issues are solved,” he said.
