Haryana Civil Medical Service Association (HCMS) doctors on Thursday withdrew their agitation after a consensus was reached between them and the state government.

“After a consensus was reached between the government and the HCMS doctors, all the doctors withdrew the agitation. The government has welcomed the decision of the doctors,” said a tweet from DPR, Haryana.

The Haryana government on Tuesday invoked the Essential Services Maintenance Act (ESMA) barring strike by any form of employees for six months in view of protest by government doctors over their demands amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

This decision of the government comes after government doctors in different districts staged a protest demanding the formation of specialized cadre, revision of postgraduate policy and a stop on direct recruitment to the post of senior medical officers.

The executive body of Haryana Civil Medical Service Association sat on a dharna at Civil Hospital, Sector-6 of Panchkula.

The state government has accepted one of their demand as Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar approved the creation of a specialist cadre post for MD or MS doctors.

“Acceding to one of the key demands of doctors hinting strike, Chief Minister ML Khattar gives in-principle approval for creation of Specialist cadre post for MD or MS doctors. The doctors will not be given any administrative work and will practice in their concerned Specialty,” the Directorate of Information, Public Relations and Languages Department, Haryana said in a tweet earlier today.

“The landmark decision will also be beneficial for patients as they will get the consultation of Specialists and the doctors will be closely able to monitor and manage the working of hospitals,” it added.
