He called on the state government to also look into and attend to some other demands of the union which include immediate domestication of the Special COVID-19 Hazard and Risk (Life) Insurance for all doctors who are part of the frontline health care providers in the state.

The union also demanded immediate circulation and institutionalisation of the modalities of the already begun deductions of doctors’ salaries into the National Housing Fund Contributions by workers in the State’s public service.

They also demand the payment of the remaining Special COVID-19 Hazard and Risk Allowances and payment of arrears of the Minimum Wage and consequential adjustments of basic salaries which other non-Health Public Servants in the state have been enjoying since January 2020.

They, however, assured the state government that members of the association will continue to discharge their duties with passion henceforth.
