New Delhi: With resentment brewing among ESIC’s doctors in Delhi, around 150 of them are contemplating resigning en masse in protest against “arbitrary changes” by the new director-general.

The doctors have alleged that Employees State Insurance Corporation’s (ESIC) new Director General Raj Kumar has undertaken steps which could lead to abolition of posts like Delhi, Medical Director, Director, Family Welfare, Additional Director, Dispensary and several others held by medical officers of ESIC.

“The DG has already abolished a very important medical institution i.e. Sr State Medical Commissioner, who are JS level officers managing ESI medical services in various states. The DG has also modified non-practicing allow-ance to senior medical posts like Medical Commissioners calling them non clinical,” said a statement issued by ESIC, Medical Officers’ Association (MOA).

According to Dr P.K. Jain, Patron, MOA, the objective behind the exercise “seems to bringing the medical staff under the thumb of career bureaucrats who have hardly any knowledge of the medical world.

The doctors also said that none of the allowances admissible to them has been revised as per the 7th Central Pay Commission.
