Meagre Stipends: Maharashtra association of resident doctors threaten strike from tomorrow

Mumbai: The Maharashtra Association of Resident Doctors (MARD) on Monday threatened to go on strike from August 7 if their stipend is not brought at par with that of resident doctors of Central institutes.

In a release, the association said Maharashtra minister Girish Mahajan had promised a hike in the stipend amount earlier this year but nothing had happened since.

MARD will withdraw from all services, including emergency ones, the release said.

“We were assured by state medical education minister Girish Mahajan on January 1 this year that stipend will be hiked with retrospective effect from August 2018. Except for assurances, we have received nothing,” said a MARD official.
