Covid-19 specialist doctors from Saraswati Medical College, Unnav have registered a complaint against the organization as they have not received salaries from January 2020. There are around 40 specialist doctors that are working day and night for the treatment of patients without getting paid.

On May 6, when the authority was on inspection of the medical center, numerous doctors conveyed that they have not received salaries from the past 4 months and over which, the authority has asked the organization to clear dues of all the doctors that are working here.

Dr. K.K. Rai informed about the complete scenario to the inspection authority and the government-appointed authority has asked the head of operations, Saurabh Kanwar to do needful as soon as possible. But, even after the discussion, the doctors were working without salaries and they told the organization that they will not work if the dues are not being cleared.

When the doctors told the organization that they will go on strike if the saturation remains the same, the organization somehow convinced the doctors. But again, after not getting the pay, the doctors finally decided to go on strike and they have also written a letter to the UP CM to take immediate action.

The same digitized copy has been sent to the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. Along with this, this same grievance copy has been sent to DGME, CMO, National Medical Council, DM- Unnao, and Management of the medical organization.

However, they have still not received their payments and it is raising questions over the management of the medical center which is the main hub for treatment of this area. In such a critical time when the country needs more doctors, the nation can’t afford doctors going off duties.
