A letter has been issued by the resident doctors in healthcare institutions across the nation regarding “withdrawal from all routine services” from 3rd of December onwards.
The letter written by the doctors says, “The already overburdened and exhausted Resident Doctors of the nation fighting at the frontline since the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic, have waited patiently for a long for concrete measures to be taken by the authorities for fast-tracking the Supreme Court hearing and for expediting the NEET-PG 2021 Counselling and Admission process, with each passing day, observing the on-going proceedings. Healthcare institutions across the nation are running short of adequate workforce of Resident Doctors, with no admission in the current Academic Year yet. With the possibility of future COVID-19 Pandemic wave looming large, the situation will be disastrous for the healthcare sector with its bearing on the country’s population. To mark our protest against repeated delays and postponements of NEET-PG 2021 Counselling, we have decided to withdraw from all Routine services from Friday, 3rd December, 2021 onwards.”

“We would hereby like to urge upon the Union Government and the Supreme Court of India to take note of the grievance of Resident Doctors of the Nation and to take concrete measures for expediting the NEET-PG 2021 Counselling as well as admission process and to fast-track the Court Proceedings on an urgent basis.”
In the absence of any concrete measure, we will be forced to escalate our agitation.
