Ganjam unit of Orissa Medical Service Association (OMSA) has expressed its resentment over callous attitude of the Health Department towards implementation of Chief Minister’s decision on promotion of doctors.

As per Central Government norms, Odisha implemented revised assured carrier progression (RACP), but failed to implement the dynamic assured carrier progression (DACP) for the doctors, said Dr Nirakar Bhatta, president of State Action Committee of OMSA.

Lack of implementation of the State Government’s decision has resulted in large scale vacancy. Of 1,450 Class-I posts, 1,050 are lying vacant. Though the doctors are keen on implementing the schemes, they have not been able to do it due to lack of manpower, said Dr Bhatta.  Although a ministerial committee headed by Finance Minister was formed in 2009, it could not make much progress.

At a meeting of OMSA’s Ganjam unit, the members of the State Action Committee decided to negotiate with the Government to implement the decision taken by the Chief Minister in 2009 on promotion of doctors.
