Notably, the UP government has recently accepted the proposal of doctors and employees of KGMC and RML Institute to provide them allowances equal to the 7th CPC pay scale, in a Cabinet meeting headed by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, wherein the proposal to give allowances to all doctors and employees of the RML and KGMC was approved in consonance with the 7th pay commission recommendations implementation at the Sanjay Gandhi Post-Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences aka PGI.
Doctors would now get non-practising allowance (NPA) and this enhancement would make a difference of Rs 3000 to Rs 4000 in the salaries belonging to technical level officer.
However, the Employees Association leaders, however, stated that allowances linked with the 7th pay commission have been increased but they do not include travel, washing and nursing allowances.
Earlier in January 2019, the UP cabinet had also agreed to pay salary allowances to PGI doctors equal to AIIMS, where doctors are getting pay as per the 7th pay commission recommendations. Notably, the SGPGI has maintained its status of a premiere medical institute, involved in training, teaching, research and treatment similar to AIIMS, since it was built (1983).
