Ludhiana, May 19
The PCMS Association is up in arms against the state government to get implemented the pending recommendations, which have been accepted by the fourth Pay Commission regarding the grant of certain allowances and redesignation of Senior Medical Officers as Deputy Civil Surgeons.

Since the state government was not in a position to provide vehicles to all class one medical officers, the Fourth Pay Commission had recommended a conveyance allowance equalling 75 litre of petrol for cars and 40 litre for scooters.

Dr Hardeep Singh and Dr Surinder Singla, state president and general secretary, respectively, of the association, in a joint press statement said here today that instead of issuing a notification implementing the recommendations , the government was trying to placate the medical officers by raising the current conveyance allowance from Rs 450 to 900 which was not be acceptable to the association.

Similarly, the government had failed to issue any notification about to the academic allowance, high qualification allowance and ESI allowance as recommended by the pay commission and accepted as such.Back
