Sops For Medical Faculty

 In a move to lure senior physicians to serve in the proposed Medical Colleges in remote zones, Odisha Government today announced special incentives for the doctors to work as Faculty in Kalahandi-Bolangir-Koraput(KBK) Zone.

The State Cabinet cleared the proposal of the Department of Health & Family Welfare chaired by Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik here today.
Minister Health & family Welfare, Pratap Jena briefed the Media after the Cabinet meeting and said that the Cabinet felt that the State is facing severe scarcity of physicians to work in Medical colleges located in remote areas and therefore need special incentives.
State Government has already established two new state run Medical Colleges in 2017 and two more are in the pipeline during 2018.
This will involve financial burden of Rs 19.73 crore per annum from the Exchequer  for the purpose of four new Government Medical colleges at Koraput, Bolangir, Baripada and Balasore.
 "Availability of adequate number of Faculty has been found to be a crucial factor for starting the new medical colleges. However, it has been observed that the doctors are also not interested to join these new medical colleges situated in KBK, KBK plus and other districts far off from the existing Medical Colleges," said Mr.Jena.
Minister Mr.Jena said the new Government Medical Colleges have been divided into two Zones.
Those in the KBK and KBK Plus areas have been included under Zone-I and the others situated at least 100 kilometre from the existing Medical colleges established prior to 2017 have been categories under Zone-II.
While a Professor serving in the Zone I will get incentive of Rs 1,25,000 per month, an Associate Professor to get Rs 1 lakh and Assistant Professor will receive Rs 50,000 per month as incentives.
Similarly, the Faculty in Zone-II will get Rs 35,000 for Professor, Rs 25,000 for Associate Professor and Rs 15,000 for Assistant Professors.
Minister announced that apart from this, all Doctors, belonging to pre-clinical and para-clinical discipline like anatomy, physiology, bio-chemistry, pharmacology, forensic medicine and toxicology, pathology, micro-biology and community medicine working in the new Government Medical College and Hospitals will get additional incentive of Rs 20,000 per month in addition to their monthly salary.
