President’s Message

Dated: 12-06-2013
In a spate of shockers to the HCMS Doctors Govt. has once again tried to put us at receiving end, in its latest notification. The finance department has made a hefty cut in salary of doctors by not considering NPA as part of pay for DA etc. It smacks of the partisan attitude and ulterior motives of establishment towards Doctors. It seems Govt. has relegated the vital issue of health to the background from its priority list. Its latest move also falsifies the tall and ostentatious claims reiterated by Govt. of improving the working conditions of doctors. The latest move would further disincentivise doctors and would create disparity with fellows of neighbouring states inter alia rendering the conditions further hostile to the doctors 
The Health Deptt. is already facing the scarcity of doctors, the latest move of govt is incomprehensible, irrational and insensitive. In the face these tyrannical diktats all members of HCMS Association are appealed to get united and fight it out.

Dated: 15-06-2013                                         PRESS NOTE
Vide Notification dated 6.06.2013 issued by Finance Department; the NPA shall be treated for purposes of DA, entitlement for Loan & advances, TA/DA only(click for notification). And subsequently vide Notification dated 7.06.2013 issued by Finance Department, NPA will not be counted for pensionary benefits(click for notification) and vide Notification dated 10.06.2013 issued by Finance Department, the DA and other emoluments given on NPA has been withdrawn(click for notification). After issuing these notifications there was lot of resentment shown by Doctors then immediately Finance Department replaced its notification dated 6.06.2013 with another notification with same number and date in which “the NPA shall be treated for purposes of DA, entitlement for Loan & advances, TA/DA only” sentence has been withdrawn(click for notification). Officialdom is going by their own whims and fences, looks confused, as how to harass the Doctors. 
This unprecedented dictatorial order by FD is nowhere in the country. NPA has always been considered for DA and other emoluments. In 6th pay Commission also the NPA has been considered as a part of basic Pay for all purposes. Consequent to this order, the salary of a doctor will be reduced to 10 - 15 thousands per month. 
The state body of HCMS Association submitted the memorandum to Principal Secretary Health on dated 13.06.2013(click for memorandum). Principal Secretary Health agreed in principle that this notification is ill-fated and will have adverse effect on Health Department which is already facing shortage of Doctors. PSH assured that she will try to resolve this issue at the earliest. 
The HCMS Association has planned to meet Finance Minister Haryana and Chief Minister Haryana to apprise them of this unwarranted notification on 17.06.2013 and is hopeful that Govt will resolve the issue very soon by withdrawing the notification 
The state body of the HCMS Association has decided that Doctors will not accept deduction of a single penny from their salary and has conveyed to all the members NOT TO DRAW REDUCED SALARY. This message is loud and clear to the Govt. Regarding this HCMS association has called State level meeting on 19.06.2013 at Rohtak and will decide further course of action accordingly.
