Dr Imtyaz Banday, President SDSJK while applauded the role of medical employees during the current circumstances said: “They are putting their lives as well as lives of their families on stake but it’s a matter of utmost pride to see them delivering as a soldier with the compromised armory and are hopeful that the voids are bridged at the earliest.”
Dr Adil Wani, Spokesperson SDSJK said that keeping in view the risk factor into consideration medical employees “should be given risk allowances and other emoluments for which we have been knocking the doors of authorities for long.”
Meanwhile, the Society said that the recently issued order of pay deduction should not be implemented on health employees so to upbeat their morale.
“Rather salaries of all stakeholders pertained to COVID crisis should be paid in advance along with incentives,” the statement said.
