In a bid to avoid confusion over their controlling authority, the Uttar Pradesh government is drafting a new policy for employees, who are appointed on deputation (away from their original department).
At the Noida authority and the district hospital, there are dozens of employees, who have been appointed for a period of five years on deputation. These officials are from other departments located in cities like Lucknow, Varanasi and Kannauj.
“The new policy will work as a handbook for employees on their leaves, controlling authority, salaries and other issues. At present, some confusion prevails hampering the official work,” said Karan Singh Chauhan, deputy chief executive officer, Noida authority.
Noida authority chief executive officer Sanjeev Saran recently met with district hospital head Ashok Mishra and discussed deputation issues.
“The Noida CEO has asked for clarification from Ashok Mishra on leaves of doctors. Mishra has been told that in future no leave of a doctor will be sanctioned without CEO’s permission,” said Chauhan.
Most of the doctors at the only government hospital in Noida are appointed on deputation. Recently, many doctors were found to be absent without having Noida authority CEO permission.
“Since the CEO is the controlling authority for doctors in Noida, they need to have the authority’s permission before going on leave,” said Saran.
