Salary cut, 900 Kerala Covid doctors resign

THIRUVANATHAPURAM: Nearly 870 doctors appointed to Covid first-line treatment centres (FLTCs) across Kerala have tendered their resignation over deductions in their salary.

They were among the 1,080 MBBS graduates who passed out of government medical colleges this year and appointed on Covid duty on a temporary basis. While they were promised Rs 42,000 a month, what each finally gets is Rs 27,000.

“From the amount, Rs 8,400 was deducted in the name of the government’s salary challenge, apart from TDS and professional tax. Now, we are getting only Rs 27,000,” said Dr Ousam Hussain KP, state president of Kerala junior doctors association 2020-21 ..

The association has fired letters to the chief minister and health minister seeking their urgent intervention.
